September 2016 Employee of the Month
We would like to recognize Mrs. Beth Fields-Hunt as the September Employee of the Month. We’ve been blessed to have Beth as a social studies teacher in 7th and 8th grade World Civilization and US History for 8 years now. Her work and impact transcends the classroom as she also coaches softball and recently led her team to a conference championship! Beth often volunteers to chaperone trips, including several yearly trips to Washington DC for the 8th grade, and she recently joined other teachers over the summer to mentor and teach students in our novice reduction program. She is a valuable member of the PBIS team and has been instrumental in change and progress at Dayton. She attended multiple meetings on her own time over the summer, as well as developing instructional plans with Mr. Wolf. Beth will be also be a KTIP mentor this year for a first year teacher and she does all of these things while balancing work on her master’s degree in counseling.
To quote one of her nominations, “Ms. Fields does a great job making the kids feel like they belong. She is always making connections with those students who might otherwise feel left out and helps give them the confidence to put themselves out there. Ms. Fields builds the types of relationships with our students that they need at school and through coaching softball she continues to work with them once our middle schoolers move up to high school.”
Also, one of her students shared the impact that she has had on his life, “She’s one of the most influential ladies who I’ve ever been around. I was a bad kid in middle school. She turned my high school career around with her kindness and the way she treats students. She’s just a wonderful lady. She made me who I am today.”
Beth is loved by students, respected by teachers, and continues to inspire, engage, and grow as an integral member of our team.
