Mallary Netterville is presented her shirt“I am Hamilton” spotlights Mallary Netterville, parent volunteer coordinator for Wolftever Creek Elementary, for her work at Wolftever Creek and assistance and support at the New Teacher Academy for 2019. The New Teacher Academy welcomes new teachers to our community and provides them with training and resources to get off to a great start in their classrooms. “I am Hamilton” spotlights the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers, and community members in providing opportunities for children in the classrooms of Hamilton County Schools. Better opportunities for children today mean a brighter future filled with possibilities for our graduates, their families, and the community.

“Mallary Netterville does so much more than what fits in her job title as she goes above and beyond to support our school and all of its teachers,” Shaina Johnson, Kindergarten teacher at Wolftever Creek Elementary wrote in her nomination. “Not only does she organize parent volunteers to help prepare classroom materials for teachers or help in classrooms, but she works hard on getting so much extra for our school through recruiting sponsors. Because of Mallary, we have a new school sign by the entrance, field trip shirts for every grade, and we are made to feel appreciated through the fun activities she helps the PTA implement.”

In Netterville’s work with the New Teacher Academy this year, she used her skills developed at Wolftever to secure over $60,000 in donations for new teacher supply boxes, lunch for all attending the new teacher sessions, door prizes, and gift items for new teachers.

She also coordinates dinner donations for Hamilton County Schools new monthly teacher network sessions to bring together new teachers and mentors. The teacher training sessions focus on classroom management and all aspects of working with children in the classroom.

“Mallary has volunteered countless hours to connect with our community and tap resources for our teachers, schools, and children to garner support and resources district-wide,” said Erin Kirby, induction specialist for Hamilton County Schools. “She has a heart and passion for this work that is truly remarkable!”
