Holli Hudson on Alicia Ray:

Alicia Ray is a ray of sunshine who sprinkles a bit of sparkle wherever she goes. In fact, I have given her the nickname #tinkerbell because she is always smiling, with a bit of an attitude. I approach her with an idea for a math lesson that I am planning and she just makes it better infusing the idea with technology and real-world connections. Her ideas and encouragement that she gives make me want to be a better teacher. Our school, students, and staff are lucky to have her. She is constantly working on making the media center a better learning space for all. I look forward to her media professional developments, where I leave with new ideas and refreshed energy.
