We are proud to announce that Kristi Solum has received the “Growing Leaders” Award sponsored by Horace Mann. The ”Growing Leaders” Award is an award that goes out every three weeks to a top teacher who brings a positive attitude and leadership characteristics to Tatom Elementary. She has incorporated “Leader in Me” into her curriculum, and has given her students classroom jobs.  She is always finding ways to synergize and help out her team and our Tatom staff.  She is an important member of our Leader in Me Lighthouse Team and played a vital role in making our Leadership Day a huge success.  Thank you Ms. Solum for the leadership you provide for your students and our staff! You are very much appreciated!!
