Cortney Danley

King Middle School

 

It is with great pleasure that our nominee be in consideration for employee of the year. In addition to performing her job at an exemplary level, our nominee goes above and beyond on a daily basis. She is fully immersed into all aspects of our school culture.  She has spent countless personal hours learning the new processes of FOCUS without any complaint. She has an amazing ability of making everyone feel they are the top priority whether it is a student, staff member, or parent. She takes the time to assist all staff with their needs, mentors’ and assists students, and establishes relationships with our parents assisting them with any need that becomes evident during communication. Our nominee also took it on herself along with another staff member to make sure our students would not fall behind during these extraordinary times. She went out and delivered work packets, books, and computers to students during district quarantine and during the summer. During these trying times, she not only delivered school material, but also clothing and food to assist the needy families.  When a teacher needs assistance, she does not hesitate to jump in and help by covering classes, doing lunch duty, providing supplies, or even be a listening sympathetic ear.  The students seek her out when they need someone to listen, however, she does dish out some tough love!  Our nominee is a wonderful ambassador for our school, in fact, if she did not exist, we would try to invent her.
