Staff members said:
"Although she is not technically a room mom for our class, Lynda has far exceeded all expectations of any of my room moms. She is extremely dependable, fun, great with the students, and knows the expectations and limitations of volunteering. My students are so comfortable with her that when she comes to our class they don't flinch. Her dedication to our school, even for classes that do not have any of her children, is indescribable. It is obvious that her love is for all children. She even wants to buy cleats for a student in my class for t-ball."
"Words cannot express the love and care that Lynda has expressed to my students and myself. She works extremely well with the students, meeting their needs and doing it with a wonderful attitude. She is always willing to help in any way possible. She is the copy and rizz queen. Anything that I need she will gladly do ... all I have to do is mention it and ... boom ... it's done. She is awesome. She is truly a Volunteer of the Year."
"It has been a special blessing having Lynda Aldrich as a volunteer in my classroom. She is always willing to help with any classroom activity, regardless of how difficult or involved. An example of this was the huge American flag she helped our classroom create during Freedom Week. I had always wanted to make a flag by having the children use their handprints to paint the stripes but such an activity requires constant supervision. Lynda was ready and willing to assist with the task which took much longer than anticipated. She sat on the floor for several hours and held the children's hands for each handprint. Her positive attitude made the involved task a favorite memory, as well as a wonderful learning experience. Lynda's love for children is evident because she supports them in all areas of their development, not just academically. She is there as an encourager, mentor, and role model. I am pleased she is being recognized for her unselfish devotion to Chiefland Elementary School."
