CONGRATULATIONS to Tonya Boone, Paraeducator at Gardner Edgerton High School, for being nominated AND selected as this week's Great Employees Serving the District award winner! Tonya 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, "Tonya is a FANTASTIC para!! She goes above and beyond to help not only the students in our classroom but all students in the classes she supports. Ms. Boone takes the time to learn and understand the material so she can be the most helpful to our students. She spends her lunch and our seminar time working with students who come in for extra help. Tonya is a good communicator with me and other teachers in the building when she needs something more or will not be in class. Tonya has developed really great relationships with our students. They seek her out to get help and work with her. Tonya just does an all-around great job supporting our students!" ~ Emilie Yancey, Special Education Teacher
