That Treece would choose to credit her team for this honor is indicative of her leadership style, according to Assistant Superintendent Chelsey Tingle.
”Based on my experience, Ms. Treece's single greatest contribution to Henry County Public Schools is her capacity to elevate the academic rigor and culture of whatever she finds herself a part of,” Tingle said. “Furthermore, Amy is equal parts brilliant and humble. She has a great heart, a deep capacity to welcome families and staff into her school with respect and build rapport. Her grit and growth mindset are worth noting and invariably on display day in and day out.
“Ms. Treece surpasses the expectations of what it means to be the educational leader in her building and is so deserving of this award,” Tingle added.
Treece said she has always had a true love of educating children, and that she is honored to have served the families of HCPS for nearly 24 years now. She’s worked as a Family Resource and Youth Services Center assistant, classroom teacher at multiple levels, instructional specialist with the Kentucky Department of Education and Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative, instructional coach with HCPS, and now as principal of CES.
“I must say that I am so thankful for my team at CES as we have worked together to do what it takes to meet the needs of our students in ALL areas,” Treece said. “I am so thankful and honored to be a part of an amazing team of educators at HCPS. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with educators around the state and across the nation. I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this team, and I can say without a doubt that there is no other place I would rather be.”
