Here are some recent nominations:
I was a senior at SSHS, Mrs. Skibinski was kind enough to let me be her aid for
a semester. She truly opened my eyes to show what an amazing teacher really is
like. The way she handled her kids in tough times and even mentored me on the
side was outstanding. She really puts time and thought into her lesson plans
and encourages the kids to be the best version of themselves.
*Kirsten Protch, SS Graduate
Mr. Patterson went above and beyond the call of duty while working a High School Basketball game when he noticed a community member that usually requires a Handicapped Parking place came from around the building having to park in a different area. Billy suggested that if they didn't mind and he was given the keys, he would move the vehicle for the community member to the Handicapped Parking Area once a spot opened up. Now that is service!
*Mr. Sam Adams, middle school principal
In such a short period of time, Mrs. Jennifer Shroads has transitioned seamlessly as our District Special Education Director. With the magnitude of her responsibilities, she has worked very hard at building relationships with staff, students, and parents as well as learn laws and regulations that pertain to her programming. Parent involvement, advocacy, and education are extremely important to Mrs. Shroads as she feels were are all partners in education. Mrs. Shroads has certainly become a valuable member of the administrative team here at SSSD.
*Mrs. Tammy Adams and Mrs. Andrea Welch
Mrs. Kenderes is truly wonderful. Her genuine interest in student success is apparent every day. She is constantly seeking to find unique accommodations in order for our students to be the best that they can be. Her depth of caring is evident in her positive attitude, patience and dedication to the students with whom she works. Her willingness and openness to learning and trying new things is contagious. She is quick to bring us all a laugh - she makes coming to work/school fun for students and staff alike!
*Mrs. Sarah Halulko, special education teacher
Mrs. Trimble has taken a considerable amount of time and effort into accommodating the "Upper Service Road" closure for our buses and families. Mrs. Trimble partnered with the South Side Bus Garage to change routes, times, and stops all the while communicating with multiple parties to make this temporary change as smooth as possible. Her efforts do not go unnoticed and speak to her commitment to our families and students.
*Mr. Strader and Mrs. Welch, building principals.
Thank you, Mrs. Monaco, for instilling a love of learning in my grandson, and for nurturing his newfound joy and enthusiasm in coming to school every day to discover what new experiences you have waiting for him and his classmates. Teachers like you are truly worth your weight in gold, and I'm so grateful my grandson struck it rich by spending his kindergarten year with you.
*Mrs. Becky Mancini, grandparent of a South Side Elementary student
