  • Chateaux School - Ms. Spence

    by Chateaux Year Published: 2021

    Ms. Spence makes Chateaux the liveliest place to be each and every day! Her smile and fun-loving personality are what sets her apart from all the rest.  However, don’t let her small stature fool you!  She carries a big stick, commanding respect from all of the students and doing so with love, attention and dedication.  If there is something that the children she assists with needs, she makes sure that they get it.  Ms. Spence can be found greeting students in the morning as they come in for breakfast, being that 1-to-1 support that a student needs on a consistent basis, and assisting in our afterschool program each day!  She shows genuine concern not only for our students but for the staff as well.  If you need a hug, if you need a kind word or even the joke of the day…. you can count on Ms. Spence to give it to you!  If ever there is a day, Ms. Spence isn’t at work, her presence is definitely missed and you can’t wait for her to get back to work!  Her work at Chateaux personifies just how much an important part of our family she is here at Chateaux School!  Ms. Spence, “WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU DO!”  #WEAREONE!
