Kelly Gardner’s equation equals Teacher of the Year

In math, every equation will have an answer.  That’s what Kelly Gardner of Holley-Navarre Middle School loves about teaching math; there is always an answer.  Putting that theory to the test, mathematically if a + b = c, and a = Kelly Gardner, and b = teachers and administrators at Holley-Navarre Middle School (HNMS), then a + b = HNMS Teacher of the Year.  At least that’s how Gardner sees it.  She was awarded the distinction of Teacher of the Year for the school, but she is quick to credit the ones around her for the award, “I am so honored to be Teacher of the Year. But we all work together and we are a family here,” Kelly said.
