Classified Employee of the Month
Kelly Spangler is a great part of the Boundary County Middle School team. As our bookkeeper, Kelly ensures we operate in the black and helps make sure we are not spending money frivolously. I rely on her expertise to keep our finances in order. But she is so much more than that. She acts as a second mother to many students in our school. She listens to their issues and gives them advice on how to deal with their problems when she can. She offers her attention as often as students need it and because of this, students trust her and respect her. She is also the defacto nurse and helps many students with medical needs and emergencies as they arise. You might call her the ice queen due to the number of times she offers ice packs to students with boo boos. Kelly also helps keep me on my toes by keeping me apprised of important school matters and situations allowing me to have a heads up often before the incident explodes or becomes larger than it should be. Please congratulate Kelly Spangler as our May Classified Employee of the Month; it would be extremely difficult to operate our school without her. Thank you Kelly!
Certified Employee of the Month
A good teacher is a wonderful human and Tonnie is a member of this team. Tonnie received her Associates Degree from NIC in 1996 and her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education at the University of Idaho in 1998. She completed her student teaching experience in Boundary County and has stayed ever since. Her professional teaching career began at Evergreen Elementary School in 1999, serving 1st grade. Tonnie taught 4th Grade at Evergreen from 1999-2002. In 2002, Tonnie was transferred to Valley View and accepted a position teaching our 3rd grade children; she has been a part of our staff for the last 11 years. During 2010-2012, for two school years, VVES was in need of a 1st grade teacher. She enthusiastically accepted this temporary change, once again demonstrating her openness to accept a challenge.
Tonnie is a teacher I would want my children to have. She is calm, steady and easy going. She is hard to rattle. At-risk students flourish in Tonnie’s class. She shared a story that greatly illustrates this point.
“During my first year of teaching, a student presented a tremendous challenge; I knew I was not reaching him. Toward the end of the year, I asked him to stay after school, so I could help him. His response was, ‘I don’t want to waste your time.’ I assured him he was worth my time and I was happy to help. We stayed and pulled his notebook together. The next year, he did not return to Evergreen. The following year, when my daughter was born, I received a call from this student. He said he was in a foster home and had heard about my daughter’s birth in the newspaper. He wanted to use some of his phone time to congratulate me. He said I was the only person who told him he was worth anything. At this point, I knew I was in the right place!”
Tonnie is a good teacher and a fine person. I am proud to know her. She is newly married to Henry “Ted” Kuhlman; she has three children of her own and three step children. Tonnie enjoys working with her great colleagues at Valley View, and is looking forward to continued experiences in the classroom.
