GESD Recognition (November 6, 2020)

CONGRATULATIONS to Rachael Newell, 4th Grade Teacher at Nike Elementary for being nominated AND selected as this week's Great Employees Serving the District award winner!  Rachael is being recognized as a result of consistently demonstrating the ability to connect with students and always exceeding expectations as they relate to serving our student body, fellow employees, and the community at large.

Specifically, "As my daughter's teacher, Mrs. Newell has been amazing from meeting her during meet the teacher night last school year and beyond. The students and parents all love her and you can truly tell she cares for each child she comes across, taking interest in things they enjoy and acknowledging siblings as well. She supports her students outside of school with the art club, now YouTube art videos, and attending their sports games. My daughter was so sad when she wouldn't get to finish last year with one of her favorite teachers and Mrs. Newell was so positive even when she was sad about how things were going herself. As a family, we appreciate her greatly, and she truly deserves this award!"  ~  Amber Vandegrift - Parent
