Meet Robert Beaubien, Arlo Brandl, David Hillard, Matt Hodges, Kyle LaFollette, Tony Miller, Ben Murray, Justin Myers, and Brad Schoonover, the February 2018 recipients of the STAFF OF THE MONTH AWARD.
In the fall, the LISD TECH Center was notified of a student using a wheelchair who would be attending the Computer Programming class and would need personal assistance with needs while at the LISD TECH Center.
When this was presented to our male teacher assistants to ask if anyone would volunteer, all of them, without hesitation, agreed to help. Assistant Principal, Ben Murray also volunteered. They went through a training and felt comfortable with the task. The student has needed assistance more often than initially anticipated and when any of the volunteers are called, they have not hesitated to come to his aid. As a result, our student has begun to have more conversations with all staff and displays a feeling of acceptance at the LISD TECH Center.
The considerate assistance to a student in need is exactly what makes the LISD TECH Center a great place to work and go to school – and why these staff are worthy of Staff of the Month Award.
