Kyrene Values Teachers & Staff

Posted May 2020


The Kyrene Values Teachers & Staff awards looked a little different this spring, but Superintendent Dr. Jan Vesely still found a way to surprise the winners.


This quarter, Kyrene employees were given the opportunity to recognize their colleagues through Kyrene Values Staff and Kyrene Values Teachers nominations. Teachers could be nominated based on demonstrated success in areas of academics, advocacy and leadership. Peers were asked to think of teachers whose class has shown growth, meets with students before and after school, or has influenced the reduction of distruptive behavior in the classroom. 


Kyrene Values Staff allowed individuals to highlight Kyrene staff who go above and beyond to contribute to the success of students. Peers could be nominated for their consisent interactions that promote a supportive environment throughout the school. These positive and meaningful moments are what make the Kyrene experience so rich for our children and families.
