Classified Employee of the Month

 

Mrs. Pam Copeland has been a secretary within BCSD 101 for 18 years, 14 of which have been at Valley View Elementary School (VVES).   Anyone that has been in our school understands that she is an integral part of the success within the building.  She multitasks constantly and does a great job overseeing the day to day operations of the school.  From helping sick or hurt students to answering the endless amount of phone calls at VVES, she is a constant ray of light amongst the team.
The staff at VVES appreciate Mrs. Copeland for her wonderful skill set and ability to communicate effectively even in stressful moments.  One staff member stated, “the school may just fall apart if she ever leaves.”  Another person stated, “what does this woman not do?”  As the principal I know without a doubt that my job would be much more difficult if Mrs. Copeland wasn’t so efficient, effective, and enjoyable to be around.
She doesn’t have a classroom, but many students throughout the school enjoy her friendly smile and joyful nature as they enter the building every morning.
Mrs. Copeland has a husband named Larry, a dog, 6 children and 17 grandchildren.  In her free time she enjoys being with family, spending time at the cabin, camping, and reading.
BCSD 101 is very lucky to have Mrs. Pam Copeland within our district supporting students.

CERTIFIED EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH

Sara Anderson is February’s Boundary County School District Certified Employee of the Month!


Sara Anderson is starting to make her name known at Boundary County Middle School. Ask just about any seventh grader who their favorite teacher is and they are likely to respond, Mrs. Anderson. You might hear parents say the same thing. What is surprising is that Mrs. Anderson is our seventh grade MATH teacher! That is correct, our seventh grade MATH teacher is being tagged as arguable our students’ and parents’ favorite teacher. It shouldn’t come as any surprise then when staff frequently state that she may be one of our best teachers. I agree with everyone. Sara Anderson is a rare talent who can explain math in a way that connects with students, tries her hardest to do what is best for students, is excited to be a part of our program, and uses all opportunities to reflect and grow.
Sara is a great math teacher. She has a special way of describing the math process which most students can understand and grasp. But more than that she recognizes when students do not understand and spends time to make sure they do. She teaches a variety of ways to do the math and complete the problems and uses great real world problems to make a connection to the math that students will understand. One lesson she used musical rappers and the fastest speaker on record to teach about rate and unit rate. She uses hands on experiments like bags of colored marbles to help students understand probabilities and percentages. She uses her own class participation rates as a precursor to lessons she teaches. AMAZING! Connecting real world student interests to math and making sure the proper time is spent on topics so that students understand is what every teacher should seek to do.
Sara is also dedicated to students. She is constantly trying to find a way to connect with students on a more personal level while at school. She takes notes, asks questions, and is willing to try just about anything to get students motivated and helped in the right direction if that is what they need. She comes to me with ideas about how to help students, even in other classes and/or with their behavior! When she doesn’t have ideas she is the first to seek out solutions to any problems she might have (she is a math teacher after all). She has instituted Brain Gym in her class out of a desire to solve the boredom and lack of physical movement during the school day. Brain Gym is a short time each day set aside for students to “move” in a precise way to music she plays. It is rare to see students not engaged in this activity.
Sara is also the first to participate in any event we have going on at school. She loves to be a part of our entire program. Is it a hat day? She will be a crazy hat! Is it a dress up day? She will be wearing a crazy outfit. Is it a competitive day? She will be signed up and competing against students or staff. She is very active in our school and the visibility helps her connect to the students at their level.
