STEM Staff Shout-Outs! (09/09/22)

Staff Shout Outs

Each week, members of the STEM Staff recognize their fellow teammates for the elements from the Formula for Character that they were exhibiting. Check out this week’s teachers that were honored.


Mackenzie has the unfortunate responsibility to help me learn Canvas. I am new to that platform and not particularly gifted in the technology department. She has been incredibly helpful, patient, kind and encouraging to me. It is so nice to know that when I ask for help, which is quite often, she responds professionally and leaves me feeling more confident and competent.
Mackenzie always has a smile on her face and seems to really enjoy her job. She is a credit to STEM school!

Responsibility & Integrity

The Elementary IA/Driveline team is the epitome of responsibility and integrity. They have all gone above and beyond to ensure that our students are safe from the time of drop-off to the time of pic-up. They are also instrumental in the classrooms, ensuring our students get that extra support. We are so fortunate to have them.

Jeff Reinkensmeyer


Despite experiencing some big challenges in his classroom, Jeff still comes to school every day wanting to do what is best for his students and his team. I have seen numerous times where Jeff will step up to take on more, even though he has a ton on his plate. Jeff is doing amazing things with his students and it is so great to see.

Nancy operates with such integrity. Not only is she teaching multiple classes, but she is still taking on a lot of responsibility with our testing program, while it is being transitioned to others. She is always doing what is right for our students and our staff. Thanks for going above and beyond.

Colene has been a tremendous addition to our High School Counseling team. Watching her in action with our High School students is amazing. She truly cares about making sure our students are on the right track. She also really cares about helping our High School teachers and support staff so that they have the best experience with our students. We’re lucky to have her!

Michelle is so respectful in everything she does. She has taken on so much in the area of professional development, career discovery, curriculum and more, and still maintains positivity throughout. She is always willing to collaborate with others and find the best solutions.
