March Teachers and Support Staff of the Month
STEPHANIE BURNETT – This teacher is certainly so good it is "maddening!" She truly cares about each one of her students, always can put a smile on our faces, and is helpful whenever you need it! We are thankful for her leadership and efforts as the Department Chair.
LISA GOBEL – This teacher is a crazy – mad teacher! Let me explain, she is constantly working to make us better writers, analyzers, and just better students in general. My writing has changed entirely for the better since she has become my teacher. Thanks to her, I feel a little less worried about all of those college essays.
TRACI BALL – This teacher is so good at teaching it drives me mad. She is the most deserving of teacher of the month because she is always challenging us and pushing us to do our best while being there for us if we need help.
ALICIA RICHHART – This teacher is such a good teacher that it is maddening because she works to make sure that none of her students fall behind. She is my favorite. She's always there to talk when you need it and she makes class fun.
TERRY SAUCERMAN – This person has worked so hard this month that it is maddening. There was a 3 week period when we were really short-handed; she stepped up her game and managed to get everything done.
