She was a person meeting with her parents to express the anxiety she had seen in the classroom. Because of her communication with her parents, they knew what was wrong. Her students were sent to Minnesota for a bone marrow transplant. She and Frevert know they need to visit him.
This is the greatest experience, not only for her students, but also for his parents. At Ms. Foote’s students, they also taught him to become a member of their family at home.

In reading the description of the award, I can wholeheartedly say that Keri fully embodies the ideal life for the year award! Keri has their own knowledge of each student, and uses their ability to work, and encourages them to do their best as much as possible.
Few parents can say that, but I can honestly say that Keri has not only changed, but also saved my son’s life!
“When Keri took my son 5 years ago in her third grade class, she noticed that he was in focus and ultimately led him to be diagnosed with metabolic diseases known to have some inconsistencies adrenoleukodystropy late; to two bone marrow transplantation required in his brain to save his illness.
In retrospect, these symptoms have been in existence for several years, but these symptoms are often similar to ADHD and other attention related learning disabilities.
However, Keri knew my son very well, and noticed that these problems were not only a learning disability or unruly behavior. Some things are very bad. This is her observation and action, so that if his diagnosis is made, and if she does not pursue it, and work with us to determine the reason, my son will not live today.
Since then, Keri has continued to go beyond my son and support his achievements in many ways. In receiving his transplant, she came from New Jersey to visit his hospital in Minnesota.
She was a very difficult time for my family brought sunshine, as she continued and when we stay close, she brought joy to him, because he has experienced depression, make him feel special, because he has learned to adapt to him because of the disease causes many disabled. Keri’s enthusiasm and positive energy affected everyone who was in contact with her. Both in the classroom and in the daily life, she is the kind of teacher that can use more in the world!
“There’s one of the more worthy awards,” Frevert said. I was lucky not only to have Keri as a colleague, but also to be my friend. It’s a Keri prize. “
