Teacher Spotlight! Our school has so many great teachers and staff members. Ms. Christensen has been teaching for seven years. One of her favorite classes to teach is the Leadership class. “Teaching Leadership as an elective this year has allowed us to bridge our middle/high student leadership program to the elementary grades. The leadership class and ASB officers had been working directly with elementary students to implement a K-12 leadership program. It's been fun to watch the students work together and see the elementary students advocating for their classes,” says Ms. Christensen. Help us spotlight these valued members of our team by adding your comments below! Do you have a special story about Ms. Christensen?
"She is our guardian Angel here on the river.” "Her selfless acts of kindness are always at work behind the scenes.” All reasons Lacey Joy was selected as Woman of the Year by the McKenzie River Reflections.
