Our next Staff Spotlight goes to Blaine Gunkel, Paraeducator at Hawkins Middle School.
Here are just a couple reasons he was nominated:
"I’d love to nominate Blaine Gunkel for the staff spotlight; he’s a veteran, he’s a positive influence on students and staff, he’s happy to help with ANYTHING anybody needs help with, and he’s one of the “pillars” of Hawkins Middle School. We’re extremely lucky to have him here, and I’m proud to work with him."
"Blaine Gunkel is always positively reinforcing student behavior. He pushes every student at Hawkins to be respectful, responsible and kind. He listens well to student concerns and helps them make good choices. Plus, he always has a stash of “Husky Bucks” to encourage kids who are doing a good job at Hawkins."
Thank you for all you do for NMSD Blaine!
