April District Employee of the Month
Carol Woods
​The Board of Trustees and Superintendent Dr. Jay Killgo recognized Vidor Junior High's Carol Woods as April Employee of the Month for Vidor ISD. Woods will retire at the end of the school year.  She is the math department head at VJHS, and teaches 7th grade math, having thirty years experience.  Woods is seen as a teacher who can explain a math concept to students and incorporate a test-taking strategy at the same time, all seamlessly. She has high expectations for her students, and she is committed to leadership in the math learning community.  "Woods is always one of the first to pitch in and help others on our campus. She will appear to help with bus duty, cafeteria duty, or early dismissal crowds with a smile and an encouraging word.  Further," said her nominators, "she bakes cakes and cookies. It is a reason to smile when a 'Carol cake' appears when it's most needed --- on testing days!  Just like you can count on cake on testing day, you can count on Carol to be there for her students and her VJHS faculty."
Stacey Butts
Stacey Butts, AIM Center High School
AIM Center High School's April Employee of the Month is Stacey Butts. Mrs. Butts is the principal's secretary. However, her duties are not limited to those, because she takes on much more in the successful running of our alternative high school. She was nominated by Heather Tortoris, who said, "She is the best and does everything for everyone!"
Jennifer Lee
Jennifer Lee, Oak Forest Elementary
Oak Forest Employee of the Month is Jennifer Lee.  She was nominated by principal James McDowell for being a positive influence on the campus. "She prides herself in constantly researching and finding the most innovative instructional strategies to apply to her craft.  She's not afraid to take risks in the areas of technology, as she routinely applies the latest educational apps and programs to her instruction.  For the past four years, she's served as one of our Kagan Cooperative Learning trainers on campus. She approaches her job with a positive, 'can do' attitude."  When Clifford the Dog showed up on campus recently to greet students, Lee recognized the impact that experience had on the students. So she got an Easter Bunny costume to wear on Easter party day. She welcomed the students to campus, taking time for hugs and high fives and photos with any kids who wanted to meet the Easter Bunny.
Pam Jaetzold
Pam Jaetzold, Vidor Elementary
Pam Jaetzold is Vidor Elementary's Employee of the Month for April.  She has twenty-two years of service and is a fourth grade teacher.  The administrators who nominated her say she has the perfect attitude for an elementary teacher. "She smiles, laughs, and enjoys her students. She will work tirelessly to be sure her students are successful. She will help any teacher, student, staff member, or administrator that has a need.  She has a wealth of teaching knowledge to offer that comes from years of fine-tuning her craft."  Jaetzold was part of a recent Family Reading Night to encourage families to get involved with their students' learning.  She encourages students to read more, and never gives up on a single child no matter the circumstance.  She was recently asked to chair the Texas Reads One Book program, accepting gladly and helping to make it a huge success as families read "The Lemonade War" with their children.
