RES Little Red Sneaker Award

RES is pleased to announce February's Little Red Sneaker Award recipients are Mr. Gary Greep and Miss Jamie Jensen!

Miss Jodi Jensen had the following to say about Mr. Greep:
      "I have chosen Mr. Gary Greep as the Red Shoe recipient. Mr. Greep is a behind the scenes type of person. He is willing to go the extra mile in setting up anything that needs to be set up in the school. I believe he even spends evenings hauling staging and bleachers from the other schools to our gym He is one of the first teachers to drop what he is doing to help make equipment for special event days. Mr. Greep treats all of the students with respect and kindness. You can tell that his students enjoy being in his class. I often see students from the other schools drop in to see their favourite teacher. He is also willing to share his resources with his colleagues. Mr. Greep is very deserving of this award. Thank you for being a great teacher!"

Mr. Stevenson awarded Miss Jamie Jensen the Little Red shoe for the following reasons:
       "The person who I am giving the red shoe to is someone who exemplifies exactly what it means to be a teacher. I don’t think any other teacher is more involved in committees and other school initiatives to help improve the experience that students at RES receive. I know most of my resources and probably most of the other teachers in Div. 1 resources are things that she has made and given away. In my interview to get a teaching job at RES I was asked if I could pick a mentor who would I pick, I didn’t hesitate at all. This teacher has helped me become a much more confident teacher and helped me to progress at a rate that I would never have been able to do without her guidance. I’m sure we can all think of a time that she has positively impacted your teaching as well. She may have the messiest room, but it’s all teacher gold. I’m giving the red shoe to Jamie Jensen."

Congratulations to both!


RES Little Red Sneaker Award

After taking a break for the month of December, RES is pleased to announce January's Little Red Sneaker Award recipients are Mr. Dale Stevenson and Miss Jodi Jensen!

This is what Mrs. Vereschagin and Mr. Maxwell had to say about Mr. Stevenson:

"The Little Red Shoe Award is going to someone that not only goes the extra mile for students but also goes the extra mile for our staff. We have seen this teacher play many roles in our school. In our 1S1B assemblies, he’s been scolded by his mother as little John Midas. He’s entertained us as a very large pink pig in a very small pig costume. Just this Christmas he played a “huge” role in the Grade 3 Christmas concert. He whipped together a brand new RES piano stand over the course of a weekend and he has been seen cleaning snow off his colleagues’ cars at the end of a snowy day. Mr. Stevenson reminds us that sometimes it’s the littlest things that can make a big difference for everyone."

Here are Mrs. Smith's reason's for awarding Miss Jensen the Little Red Sneaker:

"I have chosen Miss Jodi Jensen to be the next recipient of the R.E.S. Red Sneaker Award. There are numerous reasons why Miss Jensen deserves recognition – she is hard working, hilarious, helpful, easy going, and always a source of entertainment in the staff room. However, I think the greatest testament to Miss Jensen’s outstanding qualities as a person and as a teacher is through her past and current students. I know that my students who have been in her class speak highly of “Queen JJ,” and often go to visit her before school begins. They still talk about how they got to eat cake for their fractions unit, and subway for their multiplication successes. I think this speaks volumes for the kind of teacher the Jodi is, and so, she seems very deserving of the Red Sneaker Award. Thank you, Miss Jensen, for going the extra distance for children."

Congratulations to this month's recipients!
