Congratulations to the October 2017 Employees of the Month


Two outstanding employees were honored this week by the Kansas City, Kansas Board of Education as Employees of the Month for October. Congratulations to Joe Walker, cafeteria manager at Rosedale Middle and Julie Fletcher, teacher at Earl Watson, Jr. Early Childhood Center. The following are excerpts from their nominations:

Joe Walker

“He really cares about the students and teachers at our school. He has developed some new items for lunch and since he started running our cafeteria, there have been no complaints about the food. We love the food and the way he runs the cafeteria. There is always laughter among his staff and the kids and teachers are treated well. He has created a very nice working and eating environment for all. I appreciate that he cares about all of us and makes amazing chili and chicken noodle soup.”

Julie Fletcher

“Julie is such a tremendous worker. She is always going the extra mile by making sure the kids have what they need at school and at home. She makes wreaths for our classroom doors, decorating the inside and outside of the school to make it welcoming and home like. She leads our box top collections and has led the United Way campaign for several years. Julie is focused on our school as a whole and not just her classroom. She is all about teamwork and success. I tell her often that we wish we had 100 Julies. She is such a special teacher and person.”
