    For years scheduling interpreters in classes with DHH students has been a dreaded headache starting each year and lasting for weeks as the rest of the school tweaks it's schedules shifting ours yet again. This year Kara Mounce (WELC – Off-site) has scheduled all of our DHH Elementary students, then placed interpreters with them as an overlay on the master schedule, ensuring each interpreter works with each student at some point during the week. The beginning of the year has been painless and easy due to her hard work and commitment to excellence. Thank you, Kara!!!

    This year as administrators are learning to use a new teacher evaluation tool, we had a few questions... Barb Smalla (Human Resources) continues to go above and beyond to get answers to all of my questions and won't give up until it is answered or a problem is resolved. She has contacted the company to get their help when needed and I can count on her to get back to me in a timely way. She is living our core values of collaboration, innovation and being trustworthy. So appreciate your help, Barb!

    In mid February, Jennifer Lim (MiTech) responded to my MiTech ticket for our tech needs to host a two day virtual conference. During the entire process, Jennifer showed amazing tech skills and patience. We made a room change on the morning of the first day and Jennifer was very accommodating. There was an issue logging in to the site on day one. Jennifer contacted the outside tech department, and in a very professional manner worked though the issue with the technician. She also went above and beyond putting electronic handout material for both days on the desktop for quick reference. On day two, Jennifer logged us in to be sure we would not have the difficulties of the first day. She checked in periodically on both days to be sure all was going well. Jennifer is a great example of the professionalism in our MiTech Department. Jennifer, Kudos to you!

    I want to thank Larry McCullen (Young Adult Program) for his creative and fun team building activities that were part of our professional development on March 30. His willingness to take time to plan the activities, develop routines for staff to follow, and then to get all staff engaged to tackle the 2 activities was inspiring and appreciated by all. It was reported by staff that this was there favorite part of the professional development. Larry, keep up the good work and thank you for your contributions to YAP.

    I needed to have the file cabinet in our classroom re-keyed since the key was nowhere to be found. I tried to submit a work order, but had some trouble, so put it on my list of things to do for later in the week. Well, the very next day, James Tribu (Maintenance) was in our building doing some work for other Head Start teachers. Seeing his name badge, I caught him in the hall and asked him about my file cabinet. He came in, looked at it, and told me he would take care of it. The very next day, the new key to my now lockable file cabinet was there. I really appreciate how he just did what needed to be done!

    During the recent Windstorm - which resulted in many outages... The members of MiCase jumped in as soon as systems were available to begin recovery. Most systems were back online by School start and the balance... before lunch time.
