Connie, Thank you for suggesting I read Quinny and Hopper to my students. They loved it!!~ Wendy

Bhavi, Thank you so very much for bringing me a homemade lunch the other day! Because I had that health, delicious lunch, I was better able to be an effective teacher that afternoon! You are so thoughtful. ~ Michelle Reid

Angela Asel, Thank you for preparing us and organizing the materials for us to administer the STAAR tests! I know that it is one of your many responsibilities but you do such an organized and thorough job which in turn, makes the administration a seemless operation! Just knowing that you have prepared as well, makes the STAAR less stressful. Thank you so much. ~ Michelle Reid

Denise Johnson and Staff, Thank you again for providing such nutritious breakfasts and lunches for our kids at Mendenhall. They are lucky to have such a great group of people cooking and serving them good food. You guys are the best! I can't imagine preparing and serving food to some 500 plus people a day...and twice at that! I am so glad that you are here to serve our super students each and every day! ~ Michelle Reid

Chad Collins, It is a pleasure to share a room with you this year! You are marvelous with the students! Thank you for providing them with such meaningful lessons that they understand. You take the time to customize the materials and lessons so that each individual student is learning and benefiting. You are a natural and I have learned a lot from watching you.
