RECOMMENDATION:

That the Kansas City Board of Education recognizes Karen Dalton from Welborn Elementary School and Janita Webb from Noble Prentis Elementary School as the Employees of the Month for December 2015, as recommended by Dr. Evelyn Hudson, Board of Education Member and Chairperson for the Employee of the Month Committee.

Karen Dalton

“Ms. Karen Dalton was hired to serve as a Parent Liaison for Welborn; however she does so much more than that for our school and the Welborn Community.  Ms. Dalton has successfully implemented a P.T.A. at Welborn with more than 100 parents participating in parent night each month.  Ms. Dalton serves on the Leadership team, the Safety team, the School Culture team, and the Cafeteria team.  She is always willing to go the extra yard to help the school improve.  Successful results have happened while she works side by side with us.  She is a true diamond in the rough!” 

Sincerely,
Dr. Jennifer Malone, Principal at Welborn Elementary

Janita Webb

“Mrs. Janita Webb, Teacher Leader at Noble Prentis, is dedicated to her staff and students, and has an unending drive that focuses her resolve on the highest expectations possible.  She is diligent in her work, down to the smallest detail to ensure staff and student success.  Mrs. Webb has been a visionary in working with the district’s initiatives, creating scales and goals with the staff at Noble Prentis, and encapsulating the work so that all teachers, and teacher leaders she shares with, understand and are able to implement at a higher level.  Janita is approachable, friendly…and believes that all children can succeed!”  

Sincerely,
Jim Poplau, Principal at Noble Prentis Elementary School
