EPSD9 School Board, April Recognition of Staff and Students.
EPSD9 School Board, April Recognition of Staff and Students.
The following students and staff were recently recognized for their outstanding work by our School Board.
Words from White Mountain Middle School:
Natalee's academic strength is her perseverance. Even when she is given a challenging assignment she continues to work hard, accepts feedback from teachers, and applies it. She is kind and respectful to her classmates and teachers. Natalee is a pleasure to have in class.
Oscar is the type of student that can work in small or large groups, as he gets along with everyone. He is a hard worker, respectful and responsible, and always completes his work. He has great leadership skills and a bright future ahead of him. We are excited to see what Oscar achieves next.
We started the school year with no teacher for our MVP classroom and Mrs. Champion stepped in with her experience with those students and did an amazing job. The MVP room sometimes can be overwhelming physically, emotionally, and mentally but Mrs. Champion always has a smile and she really cares for those students as her own. She is dependable and has taken on a lot of extra responsibility this school year.
This person has worked for EPSD9 for only a few years. He puts his energy and enthusiasm into building relationships with his students and takes his time in building a safe and positive classroom environment that his students feel comfortable being in. He joined our teaching staff at the perfect time because we wanted to grow our robotics program, and he’s done such a good job we’ve been able to do that. He has given our students the ability to do hands-on learning. Seeing how he has given students the tools to build a robot, and seeing how proud the students are when they go around showing staff what they built and it runs. We can't wait to see what else Mr. Hernandez has in store for our students next school year with the 3D printers and robotics.
Good afternoon EPSD9 Community,
I am pleased to announce that Principal Valerie Shehorn will be moving into the Director's position for The Office of Teaching and Learning, next school year. We wish our current Director, Joni Parsons, a wonderful retirement as she departs for new adventures this coming June.
Our District was blessed with several strong applicants. After numerous interviews, our hiring team felt Valerie Shehorn is the best fit for our current District's needs.
~ Andy Kovach, Superintendent
