Mr. Jamey Fields Technology Specialist
A member of the technology department since 2017, Jamey Fields is noted as being helpful, patient and responsive to technology questions and issues. He is described as having a positive attitude, offering assistance with answering questions both in person and online. This was most evident recently at Midway Hills Primary School during a time when an in-house technology person was not available. His positive attitude, personable demeanor, knowledge of technology and willingness to help make him a pleasure to work with. Jamey, thank you for your example of excellence!
Ms. Amie Caruso Academic Coach at Baldwin High School
Ms. Caruso has long been an important member of the BHS team but this year she has moved from the classroom to a new role as an Academic Coach and she is using her knowledge of teaching to help faculty and staff improve their teaching strategies and methods. She is noted as always demonstrating understanding while also reinforcing the importance of challenging oneself and moving out of comfort zones to better instruct the students of Baldwin High School. Ms. Caruso, thank you for modelling excellence!
Ms. Sheba Nelson Transportation Support Personnel Ms. Nelson received two separate nominations. She is commended for her ability to multi-task and handle challenging situations with students, drivers and parents all while maintaining a positive attitude. Some of her daily responsibilities require her to handle 60 bus routes and 2500 students, student problems, parents and parent problems every day. There is a constant line of parents and drivers at her office door. She takes care of so many things at one time. The question was asked how Ms. Nelson manages to have “any sense left” after dealing with the many issues of the day. In addition to her positive attitude, she remains calm in the face of very difficult sometimes hostile situations. Ms. Nelson, thank you for being a shining example of excellence!
