Reported by on 4/5/19

The Indian Prairie Educational Foundation and District 204 recently honored Elaine Archey, a teaching assistant at Brooks Elementary School, with the A+ Award.

You can watch the A+ Award team’s surprise visit to recognize Archey for “Making a Difference” at A+ Award video.

Brooks Elementary parent Paula Meyers nominated Archey and described her as compassionate and kind. “Regardless of how good or bad the day is, she is always smiling with a positive attitude. She is my son’s favorite part of school and mine as well. We are so lucky to have met Elaine, and I can't even begin to imagine where my son would be without her help,” Meyers said.

Archey has been working in District 204 since 2008 and said that she enjoys working with students. “It’s so much fun to see their progress,” Archey said.

Wells Fargo Advisors is partnering with IPEF and District 204 to help recognize one staff member each month for making a difference for students. To celebrate these outstanding staff members, Wells Fargo Advisors is donating $500 for the staff member to use in his or her school.
