Ayngela McNall and Kristi Peterman named Positive Changes Teacher and Support Employee of the Year

Ayngela McNall and Kristi Peterman have been selected as the 2021-2022 Positive Changes Teacher and Support Employee of the Year!

McNall has worked at Positive Changes for three years. She teaches general education for pre-k to 3rd grade and 5th to 7th grade students.

"I have worked beside Angela for five years," said one of her nominators. "She's excellent with the kids at Positive Changes. She has a compassion that I've never seen in anybody. She goes over and beyond."

McNall was inspired to teach by all the teachers she loved in school. She began her career as a music teacher and then got alternatively certified to teach at Positive Changes.

"My favorite part of this job is exactly what attracted me to accept the position in the first place. I was told that my experience in therapeutic roles as a musician, teacher, and yoga instructor would come in handy when working at a half-day hospital/education program," said McNall. "I strive to find unique frequencies to connect with each of my students on a personal level."

McNall said she goes all out to make sure her classroom has the perfect decor and environment, and the kids love it. She works alongside Kristi Peterman, the Positive Changes Support Employee of the Year, which is one of her favorite parts of the job.

"Together we have created an environment that makes students feel safe, valued, confident, and excited about their educational and personal growth," she said. "Positive Changes is a unique and creative school. Our approach of connecting to students first and foremost on a therapeutic level promotes personal and educational growth in a very inspiring way."
