“Ms. Tammy Gibson is the definition of what makes South Side Area School District a great place to be! Her efforts in creating relationships with students to celebrate in their success stories or to assist when they are faced with adversity is worthy of continual praise. Day in and day out, Ms. Gibson dedicates her efforts to craft opportunities to align the schedules of administrators, staff members, parents and outside agencies to maximize the team approach when developing educational programming opportunities. Continually she outshines her efforts from the previous day in creating a positive, upbeat, effective working environment. She is an asset that cannot be duplicated!” 

   *Nominated by Jennifer Shroads, Director of Pupil Services

“I just wanted to acknowledge Mr. Sisler for his dedication to music. He so often goes above and beyond to encourage, enrich and educate my son in his passion for music. He will stay after school to work with him, hand him a book on a certain genre, Skype with another educator... all to add to my son's passion and learning of this craft. Thank you!”

   *Nominated by Stacy Novak, parent of a high school student

Ms. Janney and Ms. Vogan work the cash registers for our cafeteria. One day the power went out and our students were heading to lunch. All of our registers were out of order. Without hesitation they both manually recorded each students’ lunch and account and our entire middle school went through the food lines while the power stayed off for around 20 minutes. They kept things moving and organized in a potentially stressful situation without a single problem. What teamwork!”

   *Nominated by Sam Adams, Middle school principal

“Mrs. Woodling is a SSMS volleyball coach. While on the way home from a match, her players came to her with a safety concern for a student that was posted in social media. Mrs. Woodling's quick and appropriate response was paramount in the student receiving the help needed in a very important time window. She should be commended for her quick and caring actions.”

   *Nominated by Mr. Adams, Middle school principal

“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!”

   *Nominated by Sarah Halulko, special education teacher

“I’d like to thank Mrs. Mzyk. She cares for the elementary school with a big heart and skilled mind. She comforts our kids when they are ill and fixes their boo boos one band aide and ice pack at a time. Thank you so much!”

   *Nominated by a parent of a SSES student
