Rachel Reifert – 2nd Grade Teacher at Jefferson Elementary
Nominated by Sarah Padilla

Tammy Ales – Special Education Strategist – District-Wide
Nominated by Whitney Ruckles
I am a first year special education teacher and Tammy has been so good at helping me to be successful. Tammy has reached out to all special education teachers and created an online classroom where we can go to get help and ideas. Within a day of reaching out to Tammy for advice she was in my classroom and helping me find a solution to my concerns. Tammy is someone who really does go above and beyond to help anywhere she can. I feel so fortunate to have her on my team.” Whitney Ruckles
Lynn Ralston – Math Teacher at West Middle School
Nominated by Jonie Lopez
Lynn always does her best to help all those who need it, whether it be a student or a teacher. She is the first person to take on extra tasks and committees even if her plate is already full. Her students and fellow employees always come first, and she does whatever she can to make sure of it. ” Jonie Lopez
Kelly Meyer – Guidance Clerk at Central Middle School
Nominated by Dolores Torres
Kelly Meyer is a very a dedicated hard working staff member that deserves to be recognized for all that she does to make this building run smoothly. Kelly would do anything for you in a heart beat. She is kind, generous and loved by all staff members and student body.” Dolores Torres
Julie Evans – Kindergarten Teacher at Mulberry Elementary
Nominated by Jen Metcalf
Last year my child was lucky enough to have Julie Evans as his Kindergarten teacher. She did what every parent hopes teachers are doing with their child–providing all encompassing growth in children….What is astounding about Julie is her level in understanding that it takes both parents and teachers to help a child find success. She never made us feel like we were invading on her territory, interrupting her process or methods, or judging us for our initial path. She seemed to recognize that many parents will spend sleepless days, weeks, months, and years to find the answer needed to help their child — and that knowledge is one other thing she can use to help a child find success in the classroom. Our child is still smiling, still loving school and still thriving. And Julie helped give him that start.” Jen Metcalf
