Letter of Nomination
It's a real pleasure to be working with our nominee for school related employee of the year.   She's a take charge type of person.  Whatever needs to be done or whoever needs help, she is always there to assist, even when she is busy herself.  She always has a cheery smile and laughs even on the most hectic of days.  I feel very fortunate to be working with someone who is so enthusiastic, hardworking and helps to keep our days full of sunshine and laughter.

Administrator's Letter of Recommendation
It is always is a proud moment for an administrator to have an employee recognized for the outstanding job that is done! The nominee has very quickly endeared herself to others and earned the respect of her fellow employees. While she has worked in the district for thirteen years, she has been in her present position and location for only five months. I can easily understand why she was selected by her co-workers. First of all, the job performance of our employee is outstanding and she very quickly transitioned to the responsibilities of the current position. Her previous experience enhanced the understanding she has shown as she has worked with parents, personnel from various schools, co-workers and others. Another quality that she possesses is a caring spirit for others. This is easily seen as she encourages those who may seek her out to share a difficulty one is experiencing or a concern one may have. She always takes time to listen and then give words of encouragement.  Our nominee is also there to lend a helping hand to others and is a team player. One additional quality that I must share is the wonderful sense of humor she has. One will not be around her long before there is laughter and everyone’s spirits are lifted. When I was losing another outstanding employee during the summer, there was some concern on my part about finding a replacement. Needless to say, I was blessed when our nominee was on my interview list and she accepted the position when it was offered. One of my fellow administrators was reluctant to lose her and it is easy to understand why. It is my pleasure to provide a recommendation for our employee of the year.
