The Genesis and First Source Federal Credit Union are partnering to recognize teachers in our community who are going above and beyond to help students succeed during a challenging time for educators and students.
Below are the teachers who were selected to be honored, and the messages that were submitted by the people who nominated them.
Julie Minckler, Vernon-Verona-Sherrill School District
From nominator: Julie Minckler is a teacher's aide for the Department of Special Education in the Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Middle School. During our time of remote learning, she has been a true asset to students and teachers alike. She attends all Google Meets held by teachers and holds her own Google Meets with students on her case load to monitor their work completion.
In addition, she has reached out to other students and remotely tutors them one-on-one in order to ensure their understanding and completion of work.
Julie is active in the Sports Booster and she is the advisor of the National Junior Honor Society in the Middle School and has been able to keep that chapter active during this time. She is caring, compassionate, kind, and considerate and a true asset to her team. Congratualtions Julie!
