Mountain Valley School District
The 2016-2017 school year is off to a great start, and I would like to acknowledge the latest Mountain Valley staff members who have been recognized by their peers with our traveling staff awards. Middle school science and math teacher James Chiang was given the the Creativity Award. James is always developing unique, hands-on lessons to inspire and engage his students. Hunter Good, our special education Boettcher Teacher Resident, received the I Love Kids Award. Hunter’s caring and compassionate demeanor has been an awesome addition to Mountain Valley School. The Above and Beyond Award was given to high school business teacher Kait Hazard. Kate has a great work ethic, which shows in her performance as a teacher, coach and active community member. Last, but not least, custodian Lucille Gomez was recognized with the Attitude Award. Lucille works hard to keep our school looking good, and she does it with a smile and great attitude. Congratulations, staff!
