Educator Awarded Teacher of the Year!

TCT Federal Credit Union recently presented fourth grade teacher Danielle Kinsey from Gordon Creek Elementary School with their annual TEACHER OF THE YEAR award. Jeannie Dickinson, Community Relations Manager at TCT FCU, visited the school during the last week of school to announce the award and congratulate Mrs. Kinsey. The award is based off personal nominations sent in from students, parents and peers. 

“Mrs. Kinsey is a dedicated, child-centered educator that puts students’ needs at the forefront of her teaching,” indicated Principal Donald Brandt.  He continued, “ We are pleased Mrs. Kinsey is receiving this award to recognize the positive impact she has made on so many children.”

Mrs. Kinsey’s nomination came directly from a parent who not only expressed how emotional she feels about the strides her child has made in 4th grade, but also by how much she believes in Mrs. Kinsey’s passion for teaching and care she has for her students.  This recognition comes with a plaque, some prizes and a $250 Visa gift card from TCT FCU. This award is sponsored by Adirondack Broadcasting and TCT Federal Credit Union as well as supported by businesses throughout Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties.  

TCT FCU is a HUGE supporter of both the students and school staff in the Ballston Spa Central School District, providing not only this award but also financial support for the district’s science initiatives, Sponsor-a-Scholar program, Community Literacy initiatives and the Scotties BackPack program during the past year. Congratulations to Mrs. Kinsey and Gordon Creek Elementary School.
