Karen, Rachel, James, Cathi, Angela, Beccah- Team players is the best title for all of you. When there was a need to adjust specials so that our kids and teachers needs could be met you all rose to the challenge with a willing heart and positive attitude! We never know what changes will be needed during the year and you all stepped up to help support colleagues and students, a true win-win. Awesome team work!

Becky Hallemeier- A huge shout out to Becky for joining our team this year when we found out we were able to add a behavior interventionist. She stepped in to work with our third graders and quickly set up social skills groups and taught self-regulation strategies to kiddos who were struggling in many ways. Every day Becky came in to work with kids in the morning to get their day off on the right foot, left for a couple hours and then returned in the afternoon to check in on how they did throughout the day. She was a stable person for so many who needed a caring adult and the predictability that someone was checking in on their progress and cheering them on all the time. As our SPED needs grew and changed and we looked to adjust Becky willingly switched roles and is now supporting IEP minutes. This allowed our special ed team the flexibility to adjust programming so that all our kiddos can have the right services.
