Michael Trahan - Vidor High School Teacher & Coach
"If you ask people about Michael Trahan, everyone pretty much says the same thing,  'He is a GREAT GUY!'  Those are the words of Vidor High School principal's secretary Mrs. Sheena Kincheloe about Trahan, who has been employed in Vidor ISD for two years.  He is a coach and special education teacher at VHS.  She says he does an awesome job with the students in his classes, and that his love for Vidor shows in his coaching as well.  "He wears many hats, having been assigned various roles in special education, inclusion science, math models, athletics, and even substitute teaching wherever needed."  He is always smiling and happy to help any and all VHS students on the road to success. "We are blessed to have him on our campus."

Jammie Bertrand
Jammie Bertrand, Vidor Middle School

Jammie Bertrand is Vidor Middle School's April Employee of the Month.  Despite the hardships this school year, she approaches each day with a positive attitude and a can-do spirit.  She is always willing to help, and goes the extra mile for both her students and fellow teachers.  Her enthusiasm is infectious and she is always the first to volunteer for any task.  She serves as the ELAR (English/Language Arts/Reading) department head, and is always willing to share ideas and resources with her team. She spends countless hours at home searching for ways to make her lessons more engaging for her classroom of forty students.  In addition to her classroom duties, she also served as the spelling bee coordinator and UIL spelling sponsor. Her dedication contributes to the success of all VMS students, not just the ones who walk into her classroom.
Joni Ray
Joni Ray, Vidor Elementary

Vidor Elementary names Joni Ray, speech therapist, as their April Employee of the Month.  She was nominated by assistant principal Shannah Mackey, who says, "Joni is an amazing support at Vidor Elementary. She works as part of the admin team and works closely with the diagnostician.  Joni ensures that all students are being served for speech if needed.  She lends an ear of support, provides insight into various situations, and works tirelessly providing support to the other speech therapists in the district."  Ray makes an effort to provide support to PPCD and Life Skills by going into the cafeteria or attending recess to help students with transitions.  She knows the children, parents, and their siblings by name, and makes sure that she is familiar with the students' individual needs.  Recently, the PPCD teacher was out on maternity leave and Ray stepped in to assist her substitute teacher and be a support for her and the classroom paraprofessional.  She does this not out of obligation or duty but out of love for the students and their well-being.  At track  and field day, she chose to be outside to observe her students and to be a part of each event for the students with special needs.  She cheered them on, making certain they were happy and successful at their events.

Ashley Schexnider

Ashley Schexnider, Oak Forest Elementary

Megan Dimas at Oak Forest Elementary nominated Ashley Schexnider as the April Employee of the Month. Schexnider is the ABU teacher for Oak Forest Elementary School.  Dimas states, "She not only goes above and beyond to care for her students, but also all the students that she comes in contact with daily.  She is genuinely one of the most kind-hearted and dedicated teachers I've met."  Mrs. Schexnider is seen as someone who is never too busy to stop and speak with a student and lend a helping hand.  If administration asks for assistance she is always one of the first to volunteer.  If she sees a problem rather than complain she finds a solution.  She willingly volunteered to do lunch duty every day. The cafeteria aides agree that her assistance is invaluable.    Her enthusiasm and energy makes her the perfect employee of the month. 


VISD Police & Security Officers
VISD Police and Security Officers
The Vidor ISD Police and Security Officers were nominated for Employee of the Month by VISD Chief of Police Mike Sanchez.  "I nominated the Police and Security Officers because they have done an outstanding job since I have taken over as the Chief of Police.  Many changes came with me and they were receptive.  The officers added or requested change as well --- change for the campuses they are assigned to.  It showed what kind of officers we have working for our school district protecting our buildings, staff, and students.  They are truly dedicated to their work.  They come in early and stay late on their own to assure their campuses are ready for the arrival of students and staff.  They stay late to help wrap things up or assist in dilemmas.  They do things on their own without having to be asked or directed.  They are constantly seeking ways to improve the safety of their campuses, seeking training to keep up with the standards of security, and build rapport with their students and staff.  Two officers are also committed to helping train the VHS Criminal Justice students for regional competition.  As cheif, it makes me proud of their commitment to excellence, outstanding leadership, and aiding in the growth of our future leaders."
