Congratulations to the Collinsville High School staff nominated and chosen by their colleagues to be Faculty Member of the Month during the 2023-24 school year:
The September Faculty Member of the Month was nominated by two of her colleagues. They wrote, “She is one of the most patient people I have ever met. Her kindness, compassion and sensitivity are on display every single day both inside and outside of her classroom. She educates some of the most vulnerable students in this school and though it can be a challenge day to day, she does it with an open mind, open heart and with a smile on her face. She advocates for her students and makes sure that inclusion is just not a fancy educational term to throw around…she makes it happen.” Congratulations to Ms. Lynn Vermeiren – the September Faculty Member of the Month!
The October Faculty Member of the Month has called the library of CHS home for a few years now. Her nominators wrote, “She is usually the first point of contact for anyone entering the library. She is welcoming and offers help to anyone who walks in the door (staff or student). She fields a variety of questions/requests each day with a positive attitude and she is willing to see these situations through or direct them to the correct person. She creates displays/bulletin boards that promote character education, display positive messages and create a welcoming environment both in the library and around the building. She also designs and helps print posters for teachers around the building. She keeps things running smoothly by maintaining the copiers, printer, laminators and troubleshooting computer issues. She has a good balance of maintaining high standards and being an adult that students can feel comfortable confiding in.” For all of these reasons we proudly name Ms. Dianna Altenberger the October Faculty Member of the Month! Congratulations Dianna!
