Lewis Design Build Remodel (LDBR) is proud to present our 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award winners.
If you are interested in nominating a teacher you think is deserving of the award, please review the nomination page for guidelines and nomination criteria.
The LDBR 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award is back! We are grateful to be able to continue to award amazing community educators this school year. We start off with a big congratulations to Mrs. Jacobs of Brook Knoll Elementary School. Here's what her nominee had to say:
"Lisa Jacobs, the reading support specialist at Brook Knoll, has long done a heroic job offering one-on-one and small group support on campus to students who are struggling with reading. However, during the pandemic, Mrs. Jacobs did a truly heroic job, offering in-person support throughout the school year to students struggling with reading, even though her own property was damaged by the fires. While we have moved from Brook Knoll this school year, I believe Mrs. Jacobs' work deserves recognition."
As the school year draws to a close, we are thankful to be able to award the 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award to another deserving member of our education community. Congratulations to Mrs. Hannaleck, here's what the nominee had to say:
"Mrs. Hannaleck shows compassion, empathy, and kind leadership skills to all of her pre-K students. All of her actions really reflect how much she cares about her students and loves what she does on a daily basis. She’s truly helping to mold our students into living, caring, kind and responsible youth of tomorrow."
Congratulations to Mr. Sampson of Scotts Valley Middle School on his 30th year of teaching! Your outstanding commitment to the education of young minds is truly inspirational and deserving of the 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award. Below is what the nominee had to say about Mr. Sampson:
"Mr. Sampson was one of my daughter's teachers while attending SVMS. He is very comical, thorough and always keeps his students engaged with fun assignments in his Spanish class. He strives to get to know each student so he can understand their needs and build their self-confidence while learning a new language. His class really prepared her for Spanish 2 freshman year. Mucho Gracias, Señor Sampson - we appreciate you!"
We are another month into 2022, and the community continues to give praise to those in our local teaching community. Congratulations to Mrs. Losada! Well earned.
Mrs. Losada is a new kindergarten teacher at Vine Hill. Despite the challenges we’ve all faced with returning to campus full time, she has risen above and beyond with patience, compassion, and her ability to foster a nurturing environment for her class of children, many of whom have never left their parents due to the pandemic. Vine Hill is extremely lucky to have her!
We are starting off the new year on the right foot! We have our first 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award recipient. Congratulations to Ms. Clark. Your passion is inspiring!
"Our beloved music teacher of 20 plus years has inspired both students and teachers to indulge in the beauty, science, and fun of music! She has given herself passionately to providing both Brook Knoll and Vine Hill Elementary with a rich and CA Standards-based music curriculum. I proudly nominate Ms. Clark for this award and I know if you were to ask the classroom teachers they would agree!"
December was a crazy month for everyone. With the shorter month due to the holiday break, we are finally able to announce the December "U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award! Congratulations to Ms. Fisher of Scotts Valley High School! Well deserved!
"Ms. Fisher treats everyone in her class as a big family. She is extremely supportive, caring, and understanding. When she senses a student is stressed, she works with them to calm their nerves and works with each student to make sure they enjoy her class. Whether she is teaching history or planning student activities she always has a smile on her face. Ms. Fisher is someone that students always feel comfortable going to when they need help, or even just someone to talk to. I have never met a teacher who is so interactive, caring, and understanding with her students as Ms. Fisher."
The month of November is a time to celebrate all that we are thankful for. Lewis Design Build Remodel is thankful to our community for another amazing nomination! Congratulations to Mrs. Weiss of Vine Hill Elementary. Below is what the nominee had to say about Mrs. Weiss:
“Mrs. Weiss always goes above and beyond to make sure all of her students feel comfortable. At times, she has taken time out of her own lunch break to sit with children who have needed extra attention. She’s also helped to connect parents with additional resources for kids who need a little more guidance. Mrs. Weiss makes sure at all times her students feel safe and comfortable, and that is especially needed after the past year we have had.”
The month of October brings our second winner of the 'U Nailed It' Teacher of the Month Award. Congratulations to Mrs. Dyc-O'Neal of Brook Knoll. Below is what the nominee had to say about Mrs. Dyc-O'Neal:
"Passion, kindness, energy, commitment … Mrs. Dyc-O’Neal is all of that. Most importantly, her kids, our kids are learning with enthusiasm."
The community has chosen! We have our very first winner. Congratulations to Mr. Axelsson of Scott's Valley High School. Below is what the nominee had to say about Mr. Axelsson:
"Mr. Axelsson is a Directed Studies teacher at SVHS. He goes above and beyond to care for “his” kids and make sure they are all on track and striving to the best of their set of abilities. He is always there to greet the kids with a friendly smile and knows each individual and their strengths and views weaknesses as just something to improve upon. He’s made a massive difference in our student’s school life & we are very thankful!"
