Vidor ISD names teacher Ashtchin Kilmer Employee of the Month

By Sally Andrews

 

Vidor Elementary teacher Ashtchin Kilmer began her working life as a registered nurse, but quickly decided that wasn’t where she wanted to be. Her love of children and working with them was her heart’s desire, and for the past seven years, that’s what she has done. After teaching Pre-Kindergarten, principal Jeff Leger asked her to move up to second grade.

 

“After some soul searching, she graciously accepted. She took on a heavy load this year and is overcoming many obstacles. She not only moved up but is also our teacher for second grade ESL students and is a mentor.” Kilmer also serves on the campus and district site-based decision making committees and is a member of the newly-piloted committed for designed thinking.
