June 8, 2021 - Today, the teachers of the Nambale Magnet School gathered and met via Zoom with the Xi Psi Chapter of Kappa Delta at Fitchburg State University to celebrate. The teachers at the NMS were unaware of the meeting's agenda and what would be taking place during their time spent together.
This surprise gathering was an opportunity for Kappa Delta Pi to celebrate and thank the teachers at the Nambale Magnet School for creating a learning environment that supports all students while helping them achieve goals that may not have been possible otherwise.
In April, members of the Xi Psi Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi at Fitchburg State mailed out teacher certificates for every teacher at the Nambale Magnet School (NMS) to acknowledge their dedication and astounding accomplishments over the past year. Included in this package were pens and chocolate candies for both students and staff.
The awards for all 23 teachers were written by Evalyn Wakhusama, the school's founder, and created by the Xi Psi Chapter were presented to them virtually by members of Kappa Delta Pi. During this meeting each teacher received an award and were individually recognized for their dedication and commitment to students. Kappa Delta Pi wanted to celebrate their commitment throughout this difficult year which was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and to communicate to them that their constant efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Teachers at the Nambale Magnet School work long hours to support their students academically, and their diligence is reflected in the successes that students at the Nambale Magnet School have achieved.
Once all teachers received their well-deserved award, the members of Kappa Delta Pi at Fitchburg State University created a short video depicting special moments the teachers at the NMS have shared with their students. Within this video were memories that provide clear evidence as to why these praiseworthy awards were given to such extraordinary teachers.
Throughout this meeting all of the teachers and members of Kappa Delta Pi shared many tears of happiness, appreciation, and gratitude for the endless work that the teachers have put into their jobs at the Nambale Magnet School. We cannot wait to see what these magnificent teachers accomplish next!
