The past couple of months when issues/concerns have arisen that needed to be discussed or solved, John has been extremely responsive and a great partner for us, at HRM, to ensure that progress is made. John's support and leadership have shone through and his commitment to finding solutions that allow us to continue to focus on what matters most is much appreciated!
Misty has created a welcoming and inclusive classroom environment where even some of our most reluctant students feel at ease. She has recently supported disenfranchised students in a transition to an AP class where they are finding success and a desire to engage!
Using all his extraordinary creative techniques to engage reader's interest in every genre possible, he personally took on the huge challenge of reorganizing the Park Place Middle School library by genre to make it easier for students to find books that peak their interest.
Jef Lingelbach loves children and it is evident everyday at Chain Lake. The first year Jef was principal, he took home our Yearbook the summer before school started to memorize every child's name.
Pat was so kind and helpful when I called HR! She helped clarify questions I had about who in HR was my coordinator and also helped me pass along paperwork to the appropriate person. I appreciated all her help and her cheerfulness!
Stephen stands in the gap for kids. He sticks with them when things are challenging and life is not easy.
Ms. Riddle is an awesome 4th grade teacher at Salem Woods! She has a lovely demeanor and interaction style with students.
Anne was so helpful to me when I came to set up for the board meeting at HRM. She was very welcoming and really went out of her way to accommodate us.
Nancy was a huge help in doing a District wide inventory audit on technology. She is very dedicated to the process and leads by example for her fellow co-workers in her department.
Mike was incredibly supportive in ensuring that a new parent was able to return to school when she was ready, despite life circumstances that would traditionally be insurmountable barriers.
During our move drill Ms. Lowe did an excellent job talking to groups of students about how to exit campus from the greenhouse area. She was able to talk to many students and was very organized. I appreciate that she took the lead on this and wanted to make sure that students were aware of how to get off the campus safely.
I teach Digital Learning, a new class in the district that incorporates many hands-on STEM activities for students. These lessons can be complicated (especially for the teacher) in terms of prep and logistics. Corrie and I share a space in the library and she sees my lessons when I am at Chain Lake.
Andrea spent time during class presentations to encourage a student who was very afraid. She guided the student to understand her opportunity to face her fears.
Donna is a constantly positive member of our staff. I can always count on her for a good laugh when needed (which is quite often in a comprehensive high school) and am grateful for her authenticity and consistency.
Jonathan is serving as the facilitator of our District Behavioral Team work. He is thorough and prepared.
