Wendy Tucker did a fabulous job getting the T.A.M.E. trailer here for four days! Having spent some time there, I can personally say the experience was stellar and the science kids that got to go absolutely LOVED it!!! Thanks again, Wendy!

Thank you Wendy Tucker for planning the TAME science trailer visit! Our students learned a lot and enjoyed the experience.

- Briana Flores

Kudos to Wendy Tucker for coordinating FOUR DAYS of VOLUNTEERS for the TAME trailer!

- Cherri Urban

Danya Gardner--for offering a helping hand with AIMSWEB Plus & students. She has been instrumental working alongside us 7th grade teachers and offering support both with work and emotionally. A good-natured lady with a big heart.

Natalie Ramirez & Danielle Albrecht--for assisting me with my new Eduphoria and scanning knowledge and for always willing to offer insight about being more effective as a teacher.

Heather Davis--for generously offering her stash of chocolates and emotional support. Thank you for always willing to listen.

Karen Stringer--for being positive and doing as much as she can to offer support in our mutual classrooms and students--you were super duper this week, thank you!

Stephanie Cabrera--my partner in this whole, crazy mess--thank you for listening and being such a great gal to work alongside. I would completely loose it if I didn't have you working alongside me. You rock!

Cherri Urban--you are so awesome when it comes to last minute and lamination Queen--thank you for helping us out.

Wendy Tucker--thank you so much for all that you do for this campus and being there for us English teachers.

- Susan Ruiz

Kudos to the Grade 6 team! All the 6th-grade teachers (including elective teachers and coaches!) have worked so hard this six weeks to help our kiddos make a relatively smooth transition into middle school! Thank you for all that you do for our students!

- Heather Davis

KUDOS to Jennifer Squires.It's my first year teaching, and I am her new 6th grade science partner teacher. She has helped me with everything from how to handle classroom behavior issues to where the best place to park is. I don't want to know how this first six weeks would have been without her.

- Joe Schulze

Thank you to all of the teachers who have been completing the ARD Feedback forms. We know that it can take a few minutes, but the input is so valuable and it helps us not interrupt your teaching. Keep up the great work!

- Your Friendly SPED Team :)

A GIANT KUDOS to Desiree Le, Matt C, and Danya Gardner for stepping up and covering MULTIPLE shifts in the TAME trailer. A DAY + for all 3. I couldn't have done it without you!!

A huge thank you to Laura Terry, Briana Flores, and Sarah Martinez for jumping in and volunteering last minute for a shift in the trailer when I was desperate for help!! You guys made my day!

Thank you Laura Stegall for helping out in the TAME trailer for multiple shifts! You rock!!
