MG Teacher Honored as a Community Hero at Gillette Stadium
Earlier this month, one of our Champion teachers was honored with a Community Hero Award. The event was to recognize those who worked throughout the pandemic. Shawna Lymon, the Assistant Director of Early Childhood and Lead Infant teacher attended the event at Gillette stadium honoring community heroes from around the state. The event provided a night of celebration with Patriots players and other honorees to celebrate those who have stayed committed to their respective communities with grit and resilience during the trying times of the pandemic.
Shawna graduated from Mission Grammar and went onto Cathedral High School. When thinking back she didn’t know she wanted to be a teacher then. She always had a skill for caring for others, especially young children. Attending Bay State College and becoming the President of the Early Childhood club, she reminisces that she couldn’t have dreamed of the place she is now, but knew she was on the right path.
Ms. Ly opened the Infant and Toddler Program as the Lead Infant teacher and was promoted to the Assistant Director of Early Childhood. She is currently back in school at UMass as an Early Educational Leadership Fellow.
At the event she felt honored and recognized and meeting some Patriot’s players was an added bonus. She reflects on the past year “infants don’t wear masks. It’s a hands on job and there is no getting around that, even during a pandemic. Those little moments you have to jump into and adapt because you want everyone to be safe and healthy but we were all at risk.”
Join us in celebrating this amazing Mission Grammar Champion and applauding her work in providing quality care through the most trying times!
