Sarah jumped in with both feet this year as a brand new Literacy Resource Center teacher. Right away, she was advocating for students and meeting their needs with enthusiasm and tenacity.
Is there anything Kim can’t do? She is Sylvester’s lead ELL teacher, coaches girls and boys soccer, is National Board Certified, and is attending classes to receive administrative certification. Her positive attitude and inpiring actions have earned her a reputation as Sylvester’s biggest cheerleader for students and staff. Go, Kim!
Amazing, dedicated, passionate, thoughtful, and reliable. Betty and Jeanette’s principal at Hazel Valley used lots of adjectives to try to describe the impact these two paraeducators have had on the success of students since 1999 and 1990, respectively. Both come to school every day 100% ready to help children learn and grow.
Andrea keeps students and families at the heart of her work. Her core values around equity are obvious in leadership conversations, decisions, and actions. Lindsey supports this vision of equity in her new role at Southern Heights. She brings her prior experience helping set up our innovative P-3 programs throughout Highline, and I thank her for those efforts.
Transformative is a word that describes Camp Waskowitz for Highline students of all ages. Johnny’s unparalleled focus on our promise and his enthusiastic commitment are helping us capitalize on Waskowitz as a watershed experience of support and growth for more students and staff than ever before.
