Helpful, kind, and thoughtful are words that come to mind when I think of Heidi and Kathy. They have been helping me with our IEP students as well as keeping our paperwork in order.
Three seniors changed their plans last minute and she helped us get their diplomas signed so they can receive them AT graduation. She turned these around in ONE day!
Patty was recently recognized as a trusted adult for one of our students needing supports. She also did a fabulous job coordinating Senior Awards Night. She will be missed next year!!
JJ coordinated with our leadership students to create an amazing staff appreciation week that will not soon be forgotten. She often is involved when it's her time to sit back and be recognized and those events wouldn't happen without her!
Los has taken it upon himself to ensure that one of our students with limited English gets a personal check-in and a bell schedule on days when our schedule changes. This student gets nervous and Los recognized that and is meeting a very specific need in an intentional manner.
We had our incoming 9th grade ELL students visit campus last week. At the last minute, we needed a science classroom to visit.
All of these folks took extra time out of their days to attend the Department of Justice Stop Violence and De-Escalation training outside of work hours. There were rich discussions about how to engage with students who bring behavior challenges to the classroom.
Angela has worked with a student that over the past few years has been unable to speak to adults or to other children that are not familiar. She is kind and accommodating with this child and it paid off in a big way this month, as the child did the morning radio show.
Tjelle is always willing to help our group with the monthly newsletter. She is a wonderful writer that instinctively knows how to phrase subjects clearly and with a positive slant. She's a "go team" collaborator and her enthusiasm is contagious.
Sue is fantastic with communication! She works with our credit retrieval students and any time I have a question about a student, I can expect a response (or multiple) the same day!
Polly has been an invaluable resource for the Montessori team at Maltby. She has a deep understanding of mathematics and uses the materials in creative ways to meet each child's learning style.
Michelle is an amazing counselor for her students. She cares and pays attention to detail for their needs.
Becky has been essential in keeping kids safe and healthy at MBE for 14 years!! She is an ASSET to MBE as she has stepped into many roles year, including filling in for front desk when we have a staff absence.
Alison Branz is all about putting students first! Her ability to connect with students and bring out the best in them is amazing! Even as a new teacher, she has many ways of contributing to the school, making MHS a better place for all students!
Today Randy generated a significant amount of energy around strengths during his "Celebrating the Night of Strengths". His passion both inspires and energizes his fellow educators to be better!
