Please join me in congratulating the Faculty and Staff Members of the Month for October. These outstanding team members have gone above and beyond the call of duty for the betterment of our district. If you see them in your hallways or on your campuses please congratulate them.
Elementary Faculty Member of the Month – Congratulations to Mrs. Jenny Hale, Intermediate School Inclusion Teacher, on being nominated and selected as Elementary Faculty Member of the Month. Her Principal, Mrs. Jenkins, stated “Jenny Hale is an amazing Inclusion Teacher who scoots around campus with her bag on her shoulder delivering services to students and teachers alike. She is serious about her job and takes responsibility for each of her student’s Individual Education Plans. She is determined to reach each student and is driven towards growth for each student. Mrs. Hale is a true member of the learning team and not just an outsider who comes in to help a few students then leave to her next class. I respect her and look to her as a professional in the area of student intervention and special education services.” Mrs. Hale’s passion for teaching is seen daily by her students and her grade level team. We are truly blessed to have her here at China Spring Intermediate! Congratulations Mrs. Hale on being the Elementary Faculty Member of the Month.

He's utilized technology to provide opportunities for students to explore and interact with science.” Clint is a wonderful teammate and incredible colleague to all.
