Certified Employee of the Month
February, Certified Employee of the Month – Janet Gause
A long-time resident of Boundary County (37 years!) Mrs. Gause has worked for the Boundary County School District since 1992, and has spent all 23 of those years at Mt. Hall Elementary School. During this time she has functioned primarily as a Special Education teacher. This year she is splitting her time in Special Education and working with the school psychologist for the district.
As her longevity suggests Janet loves her job – and it shows. She is hard-working, dedicated, and willing to put in many extra hours to make sure she is meeting the needs or her students. I personally see Mrs. Gause make many daily sacrifices for the betterment of our school. She is a consummate professional who strives to excel at what she does.
Students that work with Mrs. Gause feel safe, secure, and capable. They are happy and consistently improving – a reflection of her skilled approach and teaching style. Moreover, she is a reflective teacher who strives to improve her craft.
Mrs. Gause is not only a wonderful teacher but also a wonderful person. Attributes regularly attributed to Janet include; kind, gentle, compassionate, positive, wise, thoughtful, personable, and competent. She is highly respected throughout our district as a person and professional in part because of her genuine and sincere nature with students and adults. She has a “kids first” approach, and as a building principal she is someone I know I can trust and rely on.
The efforts of Mrs. Gause are well worth applauding. She is a huge asset to our school and district and deserves this recognition.
Congratulations Mrs. Gause!

Classified Employee of the Month
February, Classified Employee of the Month – Kelly Schmier
Last fall Mrs. Schmier was hired to run our physical education, music, and art programs at Naples Elementary. A nine year resident of Naples, Kelly has been heavily involved at the school as a parent, PTSA representative, and volunteer in the past. Her hard work and sacrifice on behalf of the school, coupled with her experience as a pre-school teacher, made her an easy choice to bring on board as an employee last fall. Her positive impact over the past six months has been immense.
Mrs. Schmier has quickly won over our students and staff with her enthusiasm, energy, and proactive attitude. Watching her work you would never guess she is new to elementary teaching. She is a natural in her approach to kids, and has the unique ability to formulate activities and give instruction in a way that keeps student engaged and motivated. Whether she is teaching basketball skills, serving food in the kitchen, teaching songs on recorders, or demonstrating how to sculpture in one of our HATS classes you can guarantee that students will be enjoying themselves.
Kelly has brought an innovative approach to our elective courses. Her creative talents have been a perfect fit with the mission of Naples Elementary. She has consistently gone the extra mile this year with projects in order to ensure the best experience for our students. Moreover, she has proven herself to be flexible, positive, and willing to take on new assignments for the betterment of our school.
Mrs. Schmier is very gifted as a teacher and I expect her to someday have her own classroom and students. But until then, we are blessed to have her in her current assignment. She has made our school a better place and is deserving of this award.
Congratulations Mrs. Schmier!
