Tribute to Shelly White

Shelly is a dedicated volunteer who devotes two days a week to fourth-graders at Sirrine Elementary.

Shelly cheerfully does any task that's needed, but her strengths lie in connecting with students. She brings excitement and high expectations into the classroom. She shares her time and her heart. Shelly has brought in snacks before testing and school supplies at the beginning of the year, and she presented each child with a book at the holidays.

In the words of Mother Teresa, "We cannot always do great things in life, but we can do small things with great love." Shelly has generously given her love to make Sirrine students shine a bit brighter.

Shelly, thank you for your dedication to Sirrine Elementary. We are pleased to honor you as a Mesa Public Schools Volunteer of the Month.

Volunteer of the Month prizes
