PCS Praise Quotes:
"Kelly has been an absolute blessing to me as a collaborative partner! Whether she is helping write quality TDQs to go with texts, working collaboratively with her team, sharing her knowledge of content and processes and procedures-she is willing and ready to do the work and share. She is also someone who pushes me to be better at my position by asking the hard questions. I greatly appreciate her expertise and willingness to be a wonderful collaborative partner." - 12/2/22
"Mrs. Krampert's duties far exceed that of a secretary. She exemplifies the role of "support services". Her support stretches from filling in as nurse, answering phone calls, walking students to class, and bringing joy to the campus. She is one of the more connected people in terms of building and maintaining relationships with the Bay Point community. She is truly one in a million!"-11/17/22
"Kelly is an excellent educator at Bay Point. She is an awesome resource for other staff members as she has a wealth of knowledge to share in the areas of content, processes, and planning. She is a frequent thought partner for me when developing curriculum, and planning content. I am grateful for her insights."- 11/17/22
"Sara does what is right for her students and staff. Having the foresight and commitment to do so, makes her a great leader. For the five years I have known Sara at Bay Point Elementary, she has never wavered from the importance of her position and dedication to families, students and staff. She has made me a better educator."- 11/17/22
"Mrs. Joseph goes above and beyond to support our families to make sure their children are taken care of. She makes home visits, comes in early it stays late if that is what a family needs. She is a problem solver who wants what's best for our students and staff. Her honesty and support on even the most trying days is appreciated more than she knows. "-10/21/22
"Mrs. Joseph is always reminding her peers to place boundaries as well as educating her students she works with on self-esteem and setting personal boundaries. She works so hard to make sure her kids know they are cared about when they come to school and it shows. Shayna always knows how to calm another colleague down when they are in distress and she helps them stay logical and calm. "- 10/21/22
"Mrs. Stetz is always willing to jump in to support scholars, staff and families. She is patient and always willing to go the extra mile above what is asked or expected. She knows every family and family connection we have in campus and always works from "Service with a Smile". She is a problem solver. Mrs. Stetz rarely sees barriers, just opportunities. It is a daily pleasure to work with her. " - 9/15/22
"I was an ELA coach at Bay Point Elementary the year Taylor started working in a kindergarten classroom in PCS. While she had a very challenging class, she was committed to coming to her classroom each day with a smile on her face, spreading love and joy across campus. Her dedication to students and their families embodied what our core values are all about.
Two years later, I visited Taylor's classroom and was astounded at what this third year teacher has accomplished. Not only did she maintain the caring and respectful relationships she is known for, but she has grown into a model teacher who is not just loving kids, but growing their minds and giving them the confidence to become leaders. Even though I was just "walking through" to observe, she handed me a pile of alphabet cards and a kid to practice tracing letters with!
You can't say no to that kind of dedication, right? Taylor Bryan embodies commitment, caring, and the importance of responsibility to not just show up each day (which can be a feat in itself), but grow lifelong learners. She's absolutely one to watch!"- 9/9/22
"Kim has not stopped at all this school year! She has set up and supported testing for all grade levels. She's set up computers, fixed issues, and most importantly kept a calm and excited presence to help motivate scholars. She goes out of her way to do what's best for our scholars, staff, and school community!"- 9-2-22
"Ms. Johannesse has transitioned into our family like she has always been there. She is smart, active, a problem solver and has an amazing sense of humor. She is passionate about our scholars and the work our teachers do. Ms. Johannessen has made sure that we stay on track and that we all have someone we can count on. We are excited to have her."- 9/1/22
"Amy deserves recognition as she demonstrates her commitment to children and families by responding to a request for assistance at another school with a can do attitude. She is student focused and a part of solutions! "- 8/26/22
"With numerous school changes, including a multitude of new staff, Franchesca has kept her cool and kept things moving so that our families are none the wiser for knowing we are short staffed. She always has a smile and is always stepping up to help. She wants our scholars and families to have what they need. We'd be lost without her "- 7/27/22
