Bramlett Elementary School
“I want to thank everyone at Bramlett for selecting me as the employee of the week. I do enjoy working with all the faculty and staff and with the children. It is so much fun to notice how unique each child at Bramlett is and to be able to call each one by name. I truly like coming to work each day.”
The first thing people notice when they enter the office at Bramlett is Karen's warm, polite, helpful manner. She is always pleasant and considerate when dealing with parents, visitors, faculty and staff, and students. Karen will drop whatever she is doing to help anyone. She goes that "extra mile" if someone needs assistance. Karen is a vital part of our school. She keeps the faculty and staff reminded of deadlines and, she manages her many job responsibilities with efficiency and professionalism. It is so nice to have an office manager who cares about the feelings of others.
Karen Akey lives in Batesville and has been employed with the school district for eleven and one-half years. She has two girls, Andrea and Heather, and one precious grandchild, Aleigha.
