Degrees and Certifications:


STUDENT WINNER:  Veronica Vera-Gomez

Veronica arrives at school each day with a smile, ready to learn. Her cheery demeanor has made her a friend to many in our classroom. Her kind, caring, and friendly character makes her a role model for classmates. Veronica is polite to peers and adults in and out of the classroom. She uses her personal best effort on a daily basis and completes daily assignments in a timely manner. She continues to demonstrate impressive gains across the curriculum and perseveres through challenging tasks. I am so proud of all she has accomplished so far and cannot wait to see the wonderful things she will do the rest of the school year. Veronica is patient with her classmates, willing to help, follows the rules. Veronica is a real pleasure to have in library – she is kind, a great listener, on task during book check out.  I really enjoy Veronica and feel so blessed to have her in our school, and as my library helper. Veronica is a shinning star!  She has grown so much over the past year in her academic and social skills.  She is one of the most insightful young people I have ever met.  She is a role model to her peers.  

 STAFF WINNER:  Mrs. Angel White

Great nomination!  Angel is an awesome team player, and she's on the students' team. In meetings, Angel always keeps our work student-centered.  Working with Angel, you see an experienced, passionate educator who trusts her expertise, but is also open to new strategies.  She embraces a learner mindset and models a determined work ethic.  I'm proud to work with Angel White.  Angel works well with all stakeholders, students, families, parents, and community members.  She allows all to have a voice at meetings, yet is able to land on outcomes that are student centered.  Because of her track record in remaining student centered, she has found herself in situations in which there was opposition.  In these situation, she is a good listener and is able to move forward while maintaining working relationships with others.  Angel is a leader among all of us!  She is always acting in the best interest of students and with extra special care for our kiddos and families needing us the most.  We are very lucky to have Angel in Colton School District, and I look forward to our continued work together.
