BALLSTON SPA — TCT Federal Credit Union recently presented Barbara McCune at Wood Road Elementary School with their Teacher of the Week award. The award is based on personal nominations sent in from students, parents and peers. This award is a public recognition award recognizing those who are effective, caring and provide outstanding results observed by the school community, the students and their families. 

As a Teacher’s Aide in the Special Education classes, Mrs. McCune treats every student like they are her own child by caring for their individual needs. According to her nomination, she makes each student feel important and heard. Parents love and appreciate everything that Mrs. McCune does for her students at the Wood Road Elementary School in Ballston Spa. 

Jeannie Dickinson, Community Relations Manager at TCT FCU, visited the school to announce the award and congratulate Mrs. McCune. This recognition comes with a plaque, some prizes and gift cards from TCT FCU. This award is sponsored by Adirondack Broadcasting and TCT Federal Credit Union as well as supported by businesses throughout Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties. 

TCT FCU is a huge supporter of both the students and school staff in the Ballston Spa Central School District, providing not only this award but also financial support for the district’s community literacy initiatives, Sponsor-a-Scholar program and the Scotties BackPack program during the past year.
