This week, Human Resources surprised the Associate and Achieve 180 Dedicated Associate Teacher of the Month recipients for November and December.

Associate Teacher Dysha Collins at Secondary DAEP is recognized as the Associate Teacher of the Month recipient.

Collins, who is also pursuing her teacher certification, was recognized for her ability to connect with students, which can be a challenge at her campus. She can quickly deescalate situations and encourage teen leadership.

“Ms. Collins helps out in every way possible and always readily available to students and faculty,” ELA Teacher Laura Welch said. “If I call on her at the last minute, she is there to review and execute instructional plans quickly.”

For the Achieve 180 Dedicated Associate Teacher of the Month, Sergio Burnias at Liberty High School was recognized.

Burnias always has well prepared lessons that he has collaborated with staff and faculty. A vital part of the campus, he takes time to talk to students and build relationships with everyone.

“Mr. Burnias treats each student as if they were Liberty’s only student,” Wraparound Specialist Eileen McGowan said. “He is proactive in their assignments and follows up with those who may need extra guidance.”

The Associate Teacher of the Month and Achieve 180 Dedicated Associate Teacher of the Month is sponsored by Raising Cane’s. Each recipient receives a gift bag of goodies filled with merchant gift cards and swag.
