Throughout the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many people.  However, our SREY stands out as an employee who has never wavered in her commitment to excellence.  She displays patience, understanding, self-motivation, and persistence in her dedication to the success of our students.   In her role current role she’s demonstrated her ability to add value to everything she does.  Daily you will see her assisting with various duties that are related to our school's guidance department, helping in the front office, providing support to classroom teachers, planning and organizing the delivery and cleaning of thermometers, and assisting with the MTSS process.  Her contributions to the team reflect her priorities as an individual and the importance she places on doing a good job.  In particular, she has been greatly appreciated for taking the lead on monitoring student attendance weekly.  She knows students are more likely to be strong and succeed in academics when they attend school regularly.  She does a great job engaging students and parents in a positive way to encourage and mentor chronically absent students.  Over the past 2 years, the faculty and staff have noticed her strong work ethic and personal integrity.  Her positivity flows into others and she makes coming to our school more rewarding and enjoyable for our students as well as the faculty and staff.  There are many heroes in our world right now and she is definitely one of them.  Our school’s so proud of her!
