November Employees of the Month
 
Priscilla Healy
Priscilla Healy, Vidor Jr. High School
Vidor Junior High PE teacher and coach Priscilla Healy is Vidor ISD's December Employee of the Month. Healy was nominated by co-worker Robin Corley who says, "Priscilla Healy continues to uphold her Packard tradition of being a pillar in the community. She is active in the community, her church, and the local school district."  After Harvey, Mrs. Healy helped muck out homes of many in the community, including VJHS staff members.  She continues to help her colleagues as they rebuild, and was instrumental in securing donations for staff to have hot meals at school when their kitchens were disfunctional at home. "She is a mentor and role model to the students at Vidor Junior High.  She always encourages her students and athletes to pursue excellence.  They are always willing and ready to give 100% to Coach Healy because they never want to let her down." Students say she gives 100% so they want to give nothing less for her.  Corley continues, "She consistently sees the positive in any given situation and always tries to encourage others to do the same."


Kelli Dial
Kelli Dial, Pine Forest Elementary
Kelli Dial is Pine Forest Elementary's Employee of the Month. Nominated by Kim Lyons, Dial has nineteen years experience.  "I am new this year, and Kelli has helped me tremendously," says Ms. Lyons.  "Even though I have taught for many years, learning a new district can be stressful.  She has helped with every question and concern that I have brought to her.  She is an asset to our team and this district." 

Catherine Fontana Catherine Fontana, Vidor Jr. High
Catherine Fontana is VMS/VJHS Employee of the Month. She was nominated by Leslie Wingate. Fontana is the diagnostician at VMS and VJHS, and is seen as a gifted professional who develops caring relationships with parents, students, and staff. "To speak with her," says Wingate, "one would never know how much she is handling on a day to day basis.  She has transitioned from being over one school to handling two schools without missing a beat.  She has a revolving door and handles each situation with total professionalism and heart.  Our special education department is blessed to have her on board."  She has twin children in first grade so that keeps her busy. She has also trained Ms. Wingate as her new ARD clerk this year.  Fontana is also actively involved in church activities.

Courtney Williams Courtney Williams, Vidor Middle School
Courtney Williams was nominated by sixth grade teacher Jammie Bertrand to be VMS Employee of the Month.  She is seen as an amazing person and teacher.  "She never hesitates to help a fellow teacher when needed.  Just in the past two weeks, I've seen her cover three different individuals' duties due to different reasons.  She never hesitated and even volunteered to help cover duty on days that she wasn't required to do duty." Last year she helped take on UIL spelling. She is frequently spotted at ball games and weekend programs, as well as dance performances and much more. She lets her students know she is there for them, even after they have moved on from sixth grade.  She is also an active member of the 6th grade activities committee and the site-based committee.  
   

Kandra Davis

Kandra Davis, Oak Forest Elementary
Oak Forest's Employee of the Month is Kandra Davis. She is the registrar/PEIMS secretary.  Her nominator chooses to remain anonymous, but feels the honor is well-deserved.  She says, "Kandra is always ready and willing to help any way she can. She has a positive and uplifting attitude paired with a sweet smile that helps OFE maintain its friendly atmosphere."  Mrs. Wedgeworth, Oak Forest principal, states that Mrs. Davis is very efficient and pays close attention to all details of her job description.  She greets every parent/guardian with a smile and makes them feel comfortable.  She goes the extra mile many times to help parents with paperwork and get them answers if needed.  She is a proud supporter of all the students of Vidor. Even though her daughter has already graduated from Vidor High School, she continues to go to Pirate games and travels to watch the band compete.  Her spirit is contagious.

Christy Bailey & Ginger Bourque, Vidor High School
Vidor High School Employees of the Month are Ginger Bourque and Christy Bailey.  They are Career and Technology Education teachers and yearbook sponsors, both of them accepting that challenge this summer. They have teamed up to teach the yearbook class and sponsor its student-led production. This is a demanding position, as it requires the sponsors to attend numerous extracurricular events throughout the year, being at multiple events each week.  They supervise student photographers, and in many cases, take photos themselves. They coordinate with the professional photographers responsible for taking the grade level pictures yearly, and oversee developing the yearbook, which takes all year. 

Angela Bowman

Angela Bowman, Vidor Elementary
Vidor Elementary recognizes Angela Bowman as employee of the month.  Bowman is a teacher with fourteen years of service.  She was nominated by Kara Parker.  "She has taken on a new position this year as dyslexia teacher," says Parker.  "After many years in the classroom, she is putting 110% effort into learning her new job requirements and goes to as many trainings as possible.  Angela is working hard with all grade levels to be sure students' needs are being met and Child Find is put into place.  Her days are packed with teaching, testing new referrals, calling parents, and attending RTI and 504 meetings. She also uses after school time to plan lessons to individualize the various level of students she serves.  Bowman volunteers at Main Street Thrift store through her church.  She is very involved with VHS athletics and other community outreach programs.
