A Gallatin High School teacher can now add national award winner to her resume. CDC Teacher Sue Krennrich has been named the 2022 Paraprofessional of the Year by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities.

Administrators praised her "unparalleled dedication to her students and her support for encouraging student success both academically and socially."

In addition to her regular instructional responsibilities, she has taken on leadership roles in Special Olympics and in mentoring other paraprofessional educators.

This prestigious award is presented by The Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (DADD), a special interest association within the Council for Exceptional Children, the largest international professional organization in the world dedicated to supporting the needs of students with disabilities. Originating in 1963, DADD is a leading voice in the field of education for students with autism, intellectual disability, and other developmental disabilities through research dissemination, active participation in the creation of nationally recognized professional practice standards, and robust professional networking. The award ceremony will take place at DADD’s annual conference in Clearwater, Florida, in January 2022.
