Laura Wottlin, Head Cook and Jean Koreski, Methow Valley Elementary School Physical Education Teacher, our 2015-16 Methow Valley School District Excellence Awards Recipients!
Here are just a couple examples of the many comments shared about Laura and Jean by their colleagues:
Laura is a leader in the art of planning lunch menus. She finds wonderful, fresh foods and has opened up a variety of choices. She is personable, creative, and a master at pleasing students with tasty yet healthy foods. She has lifted the food services program to an all-time high level of performance. Our food service program is fast becoming one of the very best in the State of Washington.
Jean is an outstanding educator in her field. It is clear that she is focused on improving each and every student. They are moving and shaking for a full thirty minutes and loving every minute of it! She has also done an awesome job with the new recess program. It has been a huge help to have her game leadership and problem solving out at recess. Jean is one of the few of us who interacts with each one of our elementary students. She does this professionally, personally, calling upon a wealth of experience, and always with an uncommon fairness and thoughtfulness. Her Winter Olympics was a new initiative that promises to be a memorable event for years to come.
Please join us in congratulating Laura and Jean for their exceptional service, dedication, and commitment to developing healthy, active youth!
