Heart Award

Charlee Kleve

JR/SR High School English

Charlee has a hard time saying "no" because she truly cares about the success of our programs and of students.

She has sacrificed lunches, after school time and planning time to be a sounding board for students to talk about their issues or to give them extra time to do work (no always related to her class).
