The Little Elm ISD Triple E Award was given to Kristine Sanborn at Monday's school board meeting for her outstanding work with the Culinary Arts program at Little Elm High School. The Triple E Award represents the three main components of our Little Elm ISD mission, to Engage, Equip, and Empower.
"Every time we do an event at the TabLE, she takes great pride as she introduces her students who do all the work behind the scenes," said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent. He continued to tell the audience at the school board meeting the passion he sees in her when she is teaching. "I appreciate your passion and love for kids and the love you have for the District. You make a big impact on all of us. You are deserving. Your passion is what we want to see in all of our teachers."
Sanborn joined the District two years ago as the culinary instructor after spending 10 years in the food industry. She has facilitated special catering events with her advanced culinary students and has helped serve exceptionally fine cuisine for those events.
"I am truly honored to receive the Triple E Award. Being able to teach a subject that I love to do and that I am so passionate about makes me feel like I have the best job," said Sanborn. "I am able to teach students a skill that they will take with them after high school. Not only do I get to teach them something that I am so passionate about, but I get to work in a fabulous kitchen all day! I love seeing the students grow in their skill and become more confident in their culinary abilities."
The Triple E Award has been given to nine other District employees since 2016. It is reserved for the teachers and other staff members who invest more time and energy to ensure our students have a great experience as they learn. This is our way of recognizing their excellence.
