Shelley Tantlinger. Wow. Calm, organized, explanatory, excellent communicator. You are one of our unsung heroes.
Lori Bantz. The fifth grade choir sounds fabulous. Thanks for the extra time and work you put into this.
Leslie Widman. Love how much you care about your kids.
Laura Kent. Thanks for helping your student NAIL the Pledge.
Amber Brown. Jumping into the "wonder" conversations with a starting point about albino giraffes? Brilliant.
Lorie Blaeser. Patience of Job. Just sayin'.
Barb Tully. I love how Eli could communicate his frustration about the lack of pepperoni on the pizza! Fantastic!
Lee Hamill. Thanks for your willingness to get us food or drinks whenever we need a pickup. And congrats on ANOTHER grand baby!
Stacie Martin. CONSTANTLY pushing yourself and working your tail off. Thanks.
Rebecca Ratnasingham. Almost done with RESA. Go, girl!
Donna Mizok. You KILLED it with data and knowledge about your student during the worried-parent meeting. Awesome.
Chelsea Bolenbaugh. Presenting to science teachers around the state at SECO this week! So cool!
Jen VanDyke. Thank you for articulating your concerns so well to a not-so-worried parent. ;)
Dave Miller. Trying new things--new chairs, new wonder workshop. Fun to watch!
Pat Cook. Lots of bodily fluids and creepy-crawlies, and you manage it all with a smile. Awesome.
Andrew Phillips. Yikes! You needed track shoes this week! #fullmoon
Jenny Kluz. Schlepping a gigantic laundry basket of books to a teachers room, saying, "HOLY COW! THESE KIDS LIKE TO READ!!!" Thanks for your hard work.
Again, this only scratches the surface of what we're grateful for. Just wanted to send a few specific shout-outs!
I heard there were two boys in the office to "talk to Mrs. Schwanke." That usually means trouble. Nope! They said, "Would you like to have breakfast with us?"
I joined first graders for their Books and Breakfast celebrations!
Made Stacy's class pose for a photo. I couldn't help it... so precious in their jammies!
Compliment of the Day
