mrs bolz and mrs warner

Educator: Britt Warner

“My stepson was missing after school today. He should have stayed after school for UIL but forgot and went as a walker to where I would normally pick him up. When I got to Dodd to pick up and realized he wasn’t there Mrs.Warner immediately jumped in to take charge of communication and help find him. Zero hesitation or waiting she just immediately jumped in to help me physically look for him around Krum. She handled communication with Krum PD so that I and his other parents could call and get word out to others to continue searching. She took time to reassure me and help calm me down. It’s very difficult to put into words how big of a difference she made this evening but I think it just continue to speak to her character and her love for this town and school district. I know she played a big part in organizing the fundraiser for another Dodd student who is having health struggles and frequently on the day to day school life I have heard my kids mention how kind she is. She deserves recognition for all of her hard work and everything she does for the kids of Krum. I’ll never forget her help this evening and am thankful Krum ISD has someone like her on my child’s campus. “

Mrs. Warner is always willing to help others and has done an amazing job at building relationships with her students as well as the teachers and paras.”
