Judy Burkhart

S. S. Dixon Primary School

We are honored to be able to nominate our bookkeeper as the School Related Employee of the Year for many reasons. She not only performs her job at a high rate of excellence, but she also provides a consistent level of leadership to our staff, children, and families. One way this leadership can be seen is during our monthly School Advisory Council Meetings. She attends each meeting offering constructive input, taking notes, and even making the coffee.  She also demonstrates initiative by stepping up to the plate whenever we have a need. When our school lost several school related employees due to budget cuts, it left us with unfilled holes in our duty roster. Our nominee didn't hesitate a minute to offer her services. She is now outside rain or shine, calling car rider numbers to the waiting children and waving to each parent. This is just one of many reasons she is admired and respected by all. Her calm demeanor, patient attitude, and positive outlook make her the perfect candidate for the next district level School Related Employee of the year.
