The June 2016 PEAK Award Winners are:

r

Randel Talbot, Custodian,

r

Park Elementary School

r

Nominated by Ryan Kay

r

“Randel moved to Park Elementary the day before school let out. He stepped into the building and has not looked up since. Mr. Talbot is a work horse. When it was time for registration, our school sparkled! It is awesome to watch him in the lunch room interacting with kids. He talks about hunting, opens ketchup packets, pats students on the back, and dries their tears as he mops up their spilled milk. Mr. Talbot is a great part of our school culture. We appreciate everything he does for students and teachers of Park Elementary.”

r

Kara Poulsen, Drama Teacher

r

Diamond Fork Junior High School

r

Nominated by Kathleen & Hannah Moore

r

“Kara is an amazing teacher who really cares about students. She enjoys her job. For the past 20 years, Kara has taken the Shakespeare Team to competition in Cedar City during October. As a parent chaperone, it was amazing to see her work so well with her students. Mrs. Poulsen and her students seem to have a special bond. It does not only exist with just the Shakespeare Team. The bond is with her drama club, students in class, during E-time, and with the students in the halls. Kara is truly remarkable.”

r

Dallas Pruitt, Special Education Teacher

r

Salem Hills High School

r

Nominated by Wade Tischner

r

“I see Dallas work with a very specific group of Special Education students with unique challenges. He is a master at helping students and parents move forward in their goals. Dallas has literally changed students’ lives because of his ability to help them work through their disabilities. He is always willing to try and be creative with difficult assignments. Dallas knows how to connect, inspire and educate his students.”

r

Gloria Nance, Secondary Literacy & Mentor Specialist

r

District Wide

r

Nominated by Suzanne Kimball & Kami Christensen

r

“Gloria is the premiere example of a true educator. She is continuously teaching students, teachers and administrators, and we are all blessed for it. Not only does Gloria give 100 percent in every challenge she takes on, she does it with a genuine care for others. Gloria has done it all – elementary and secondary teaching, new teacher induction, overseeing mentoring, training administrators on evaluation, and the list goes on. There will truly be a void in our lives at Nebo School District as a result of her retirement; however, the memories of her professionalism and love for others will continue to educate and influence all of us.”
