Part IV, 2010 Staff Award Winners

Join us this summer as we spotlight our 2010 Staff Award winners each week. In our fourth post, we honor Brandy Reed.

Brandy Reed is the in-school suspension supervisor at Liberty Middle School and is an integral part of the Liberty team. While her responsibilities are specifially to supervise students who have been removed from class or assigned to lunch/after-school detention, she does far more. Her work ethic is exemplary; she arrives before her shift begins and works hard. What makes Brandy stand out however, are the things she does that are not part of her job description. She can be counted on to converse with the students positively and offers encouragement to them as she passes them in the hall.

Brandy brings a “can do” attitude to all that she does and has communicated to others the understanding that the success of the students is paramount. She works well with others. She works to ensure the students will have a positive learning experience even when not in their classroom, and she listens to the students so they feel supported—therefore strengthening their ability to learn.
