Nola is always very helpful when it comes to finding books. She will make recommendations, find them on the shelves and even continue the search long after I have left the library.

Jamie Bull has a love for children and a heart for making them full important. One example, of many, came this week with a kindergarten student.
Oscar is a great "face" of the office. The students really enjoy him and he creates quick rapport with parents.

As a 6th grade science teacher, Theresa does an exceptional job of incorporating highly effective discourse strategies. Her integration of NGSS standards and culturally responsive practices provide her students with an outstanding learning experience!

Niall is not only a tech guru and someone that is helping us get more tech savy, he is also someone that steps in to help you in your moments of need.

Shawna is always doing something great. She welcomes transitioning students from SLC into her kindergarten classroom with enthusiasm, going the extra mile to ensure they are successful.
Greg is phenomenal! While it is his job to be constantly on alert, addressing the 1-3% of the most alarming risks to safety, he is also constantly pushing his own practice and the practices of those he works with.
