Ross Blommel, Toano Middle
Mr.Blommel is always there for us and finds a way to make teaching fun. We can tell he cares about us and he shows it every day. If someone is crying, he will talk to them, if someone is changing themselves, he will remind them of who they are, and show them the beauty in it. He doesn’t just say we are his children; he makes us feel like it.
Kelly Kuklis (NES)
Kelly has been a wonderful support with a smile. She patiently helps her teachers navigate new technology to better instruct their students virtually. When Kelly is at her other assigned school, she is still an email away with needed support. She responds swiftly and if she doesn’t know the answer immediately, she researches it herself and gets back to us in a timely manner so we can continue to develop our lessons. I’m sure she is being inundated with emails, but Kelly is positive, patient, helpful, and kind through it all. We teachers couldn’t do what we do without her!
Alynn Parham, Jamestown High
Allyn is a special person who is quick with a smile. She puts students first and goes out of her way to make her students feel safe and respected and find success. She is friendly and personable with all of her colleagues, and her congeniality in infectious. Allyn finds the positive in everything, and I appreciate her youthful optimism and vibrant fervor for teaching.
