Junior High Staff Member of the Month
January 2021 - Amy Criswell
Staff Member of the Month goes to a teacher who is always willing to go the extra mile for students. She took on the job this year of junior high basketball coach and consistently modeled for our female students who need mentorship. This teacher is one of the first to volunteer and works hard to ensure our students excel academically. She is a team lead who calls parents and holds students accountable. We are so happy to announce, Ms. Amy Criswell, as staff member of the month for January.
December 2020- Robin Curry
Robyn Curry was selected as staff person of the month by her colleagues due to her willingness to go above and beyond for our students. Robyn makes home visit and calls students in the morning to ensure they are up and ready to learn. She holds small group sessions in the building and even provides lunch for the students who are willing to stay for the day to get caught up on past due assignments. She has a connection with families and students and works hard to advocate for their best interest. We are happy to have someone like Robyn Curry on the JRHS team.
November - Joel Bartlett
Joel Bartlett is the staff member of the month of November for the JR HS. Joel was awarded this honor for the work he does to help families and students that goes beyond the call of duty. He communicates so well with families and his passion for our students and the community shows in his work with families. Joel is a leader and is always willing to help. He volunteers and tutors students in Science after hours to support their academic growth despite being remote. We had to award him Staff Member of the Month for November for the compassion he shows that I hope we all can model especially during times as hard as these.
October 2020 - Sam Reger
Mr. Reger was nominated by a colleague who wrote the following, "I have had many collaborative teaching experiences in my career and have witnessed lots of teaching styles. Mr. Reger is very motivating and makes Math fun. He never makes the students, or me at times, feel stupid for getting a wrong answer or asking a question. He does a great job handling difficult situations that come up while teaching remotely. His best attribute is his ability to break the material down into smaller steps showing examples at a level that every student can pick up on. MTCHS is lucky to have him on staff!" His work was also noticed by a parent who took the time to speak to administration about how great he was with the class and his explanations were even clear to her as a parent which made it easier to assist her daughter if necessary.
September 2020- Cheryl Wilson
Mrs. C. Wilson has gone beyond the call of duty by being a daily pillar during student/parent orientation. She called families and even took devices to student homes who did not have transportation. As a team leader, she models a positive attitude and is always on board to do what is best for kids. Her passion for young people is evident in all of her actions. She sees a need and rises to the occasion. We are so glad to have her as a part of our dynamic JR HS team!
