Gold Star

Each month, one teacher and one member of the support staff are nominated by their peers as outstanding examples of excellence and leadership within our school. November’s winners are Jim Pettit and Toni Bruce. Their peers had some amazing things to say about each, read on to learn more about our November Staff of the Month.

Jim Pettit


I nominate Jim Pettit for support staff of the month for all of the following reasons.

-In his short time here, Mr. Pettit has shown a commitment to helping students succeed. He goes above and beyond to form relationships with students. He has shown great patience working with students that are normally considered to be very difficult. Jim is always very calm and nurturing with these students even when they do not appreciate what he is trying to do for them.  

-He is very organized. He somehow manages to keep track of assignments and tests for several CTG sections with multiple teachers. He has a can do attitude in terms of getting assignments done and helping students pass their classes.

-Even if he's busy, he never grumbles when I bring in assignments for the same student to complete on a daily basis or bring him a large pile of missing work for various students. He probably should grumble at me, but he never does.

- I'm positive that my short list does not cover all of the ways Mr. Pettit helps both students and teachers. He has been an amazing addition to Lewis Central High School.


Toni Bruce

Mrs. Bruce has one of the most challenging and rewarding teaching positions within our school.  Her learners can bring unique challenges physically, academically and emotionally, but the uniqueness of the challenges are matched with the uniqueness of the rewards.  Rewards she takes pleasure in acknowledging and embracing.  In addition to her work with students, she also has several staff members that report to her.  

Whether it be students or staff, Mrs. Bruce, is always patient, caring and demonstrates a genuine concern for others.  Relationships are fundamental to our work and Mrs. Bruce is an example of developing excellent relationships with all that she works with.
