11/23/2016 Ray Robison Zach Ripsom Zach cleaned up a mistake I made. He delivered the Starlab to Ashland High School when it should have gone to Ashland Middle School. I had written the wrong school name down. The matter was complicated by the fact that it was the day before Thanksgiving and the school was closed. Zach managed to get someone in the office to unlock for him so he could make the delivery. When he arrived at the Middle School where someone was waiting for the Starlab he discovered my mistake. After making arrangements to get back in to the high school again he picked up the Starlab and got it to the middle school.

01/09/2017 Kate Weber Rosie Converse Rosie helped me in a pinch with some spreadsheet magic, for which I am grateful!
02/03/2017 Brian Robin BenDavol Rosie Converse I recognize that SOESD CTE needs promotional materials that are both equitable and relevant to today's students. Over the years, I have received multiple advertisements for CTE promotional materials that I don't feel meets this need and asked Rosie for input. Rosie then took the initiative to produce 8 VERY impressive images that I now want to have made into posters for distribution to middle and high schools in our area for the sake of promoting CTE to girls. Additionally, I feel that the images are so good, that I am looking into the possibility of licensing them for the SOESD for the sake of national distribution! HUGE kudos to Rosie for both her artistic abilities as well as her insight that the promotion of CTE/STEM professions to female students could lead to their financial success in life!
02/28/2017 Kate Weber Imie Mandell If you notice Imie's new muscles, it's because she hauled boxes and boxes of science curriculum materials to Klamath Falls for me. She went above and beyond by delivering right to the school where they were needed instead of dropping them at the district office. Many many thanks to Imie!

04/06/2017 Kate Weber Rosie Converse Rosie came and presented at our library shindig yesterday. She was well spoken, knowledgeable, and thorough in her explanations of upcoming changes to Destiny and in fielding questions about Destiny in general. So glad she's at SOESD and says "yes" to things!
04/06/2017 Kate Weber Ray Robison Ray stepped out of his comfort zone and said yes to my request to facilitate the Zoom portion of our library shindig yesterday. Because of his involvement, people who couldn't be with us in person had a much better experience joining us electronically. Yay for Ray!
05/10/2017 Kate Weber Rosie Converse Rosie, as always, jumped into one of my weird requests with both feet. I was doing a Makerspace at Phoenix High School and wanted a coding component. She created a coding game that explained coding within the parameters of the time frame allowed. She also expanded the conversation with the students to include what coding at work looks like in the real world. Yay Rosie!
05/15/2017 Ben Davol Kelsey Huntley Kelsey was especially awesome this last week on multiple occasions, she proactively went above and beyond in putting together interviewee and applicant packets for me so I could move forward fast with hires for ES. She is so great to have on the team, an incredibly hard worker and indispensable to the entire TMS program.
05/15/2017 Rea Snyder Brandi Cameron Brandi has been invaluable and instrumental in the success of the Mentor Grant in our region. Not only does she have the kindest personality, she has a "can do " attitude that is contagious with all those she works with. Both Heidi and I view her as our partner not our assistant. She contributes her ideas and takes our work to the next level. She is appreciated not only by us but by all our mentors, district coordinators, district PL C leaders and all of the ODE Mentor Grant personnel. The words thank you cannot begin to express my gratitude to you Brandi.
