Reeves Elementary teachers earn Golden Crayon award

Three teachers at Reeves Elementary School went above and beyond for one of their students this past school year.

This year, Long Beach School District honored a few teachers with the annual Golden Crayon Award. This honor is awarded to people that make their school district a little bit brighter.

In this case, teachers Brianna Barrows, Kim Bertucci, and Leigh Seal received this award for ensuring a blind student learned to the best of his ability.

This trio would translate all school curriculum into braille in order for him to be able to fully participate. Barrows said, “Our knowledge progressed, and we got to the point where he could do anything in the same amount of time as another student.”

These teachers took it upon themselves to learn new skills. One new skill that they possess is translating a general childrens book into a braille accessible book for their student.
