Susan Commander

Pea Ridge Elementary

Our School Related Employee of the Year shows her dedication to her job in many ways. As one school year comes to a close, our SREY begins to prepare for the next. Besides placing orders for needed materials and closing out the year's accounts, she goes a step further in preparing notebooks, containing leave forms, information regarding using classroom funds, and other needed documents for every member of the faculty and staff. The new teachers find her preparations to be helpful in beginning a smooth new year and the veteran employees rely on the information as a refresher. If there is ever a need at our school, our SREY is always willing to step in. Whether it's covering the autism unit so the teacher can have a break or staying late to receipt money for special school events, she is always willing to help with a smile on her face.

One of the most impressive characteristics that our SREY possesses is her attention to detail. She is meticulous in her bookkeeping and all accompanying requirements. She has proven her abilities time and again, yet she strives to find ways to improve her techniques. We are proud to acknowledge our School Related Employee of the Year.
