Shout Outs

Mrs. Nally has done an amazing job this year teaching MSOL. I could not be more grateful, appreciative, and impressed. She is so patient and kind through all of the ‘trickiness” and “new” of online learning. I know that Jillian has had a great year this far and is learning so much.

Thank you to Mrs. Nally!! The Bohrer Family appreciates you!!

Mrs. Patton, in addition to being a wonderful, passionate teacher went above and beyond when my daughter was put on quarantine last semester when someone she had contact with tested positive for covid. Mrs Patton reached out via email and called us personally to make sure Katrina did not fall behind during the time she was at home. She’s so caring and we are so lucky to have her!!! An asset to Sand Pine.

To anyone who has NEVER had to design and complete a yearbook, you need to pay attention to this shout out. It is a challenge of biblical proportions where you try to feature everyone at least once, make sure names are spelled correctly, get your material submitted on time, and the list goes on and on. Oh, and let’s throw a pandemic in there just for good measure. Well, take a look at this year’s yearbook. Two of my colleagues have KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!! The book looks fantastic, and I know they were running around crazy trying to get pictures of tradition kids as well as on line kiddos. Their hard work has paid off. The book is vibrant, colorful, and full of great memories of a very difficult year. Ladies (Kristen Alleger & Jeannine Lehmann), my hat is off to you for your hard work. I wanted you to hear it from me first.

Love you both, Mills

Mrs. Alleger, 

Excellent communication, great teacher, very responsive to questions. In appreciate all her hard work with my son and for the school in general.

Mrs. Forsman,

She goes above and beyond for her students and coworkers and has dedication to the Sand Pine family.

Mrs. Welt rose to the occasion for my school online. She learned all the tricks to zoom and did it with a smile. She told the children that we are all adjusting (parents, teachers and students) and that made the children feel comfortable. Mrs. Welt has a way with words too. She is strict in the kindest way. In 8 months I have never herd her raise her voice, even when the children were being less than cooperative. She had a way with those kiddos to make them listen and respect her. At a time when teachers were leaving, she stayed to teach and did it with a smile. And for that, she deserves a shout out. There is no reward big enough to show what she deserves.

Compliments to the 4th grade teachers for an informative FSA parent night! We are super thankful for all the extra writing opportunities given to our kiddo to prepare him for this test! Also, Mrs. Simpson rocks!

Thank you,

The Simmons Family

I am so thankful for the Kindergarten team (Mrs. Alleger, Mrs. Romero, Mrs. Lehmann) I joined. From my first day of work, Michelle, Jeannine, and Kristen have offered me help, advice, and positivity. Being a brand new teacher at a new school can be intimidating, and I have never felt anything other than welcomed and supported. You three are wonderful teachers, women, moms, and mentors! I am so grateful to have you all around!

Thank you for everything,

Mrs. Willis is an Excellent teacher, great communicator skills and very patient. I want to thank you for your hard work with Matias and the whole class !!! Thanks for your communication in the states test !!!! Many thanks !!!!

Ms. Peck

She is a great teacher. She says funny things. She shows us that she cares by being patient with all of us.

Lily F., student

Jamie C. has helped me so much with putting things on the School Website for next year’s school registration on top of her clinic tasks. She is amazing with taking care of our kiddos in the clinic and I would be lost without her on our team!

-Alex T-R

Mrs. Ryan has done the best job with the MSOL students! She is so patient with all the students questions. I was concerned that my first grader wouldn’t be able to stay engaged all day in front of the laptop and Mrs Ryan has made things interesting and always manages to fit in a little fun. I am so glad that we had her as a teacher this year!

-Alicia Willis, Parent

Mighty Miller is a wonder! She’s always so positive, kind, funny, and caring. She has helped my son directly with a speech problem, but I think how she helps the entire school is just as amazing as the special care she gives to her speech students.

My son is 19 years old now. He attended Sand Pine from 1st through 5th grade. My oldest daughter attended K through 5th. My youngest daughter is a kindergarten student now. All of that is just to say that I am so very grateful that all of my children have had Mighty Miller in their lives, even though just one actually worked with her directly. My two children who have graduated from Sand Pine still love her very much, and of course my kindergartener adores her as well. I can’t think of person, outside of our family, that any of my kids would rather see.

Least importantly, but still important, Mighty Miller has always made me smile. Whether it be daily in the car line or a special event like bingo night, she has a personality that is infectious in a wonderful way! She’s not only helping Sand Pine students, but Sand Pine parents as well on a daily basis.

I think I’ve written more than a typical “shout out”, but Mighty Miller is much more than a typical school employee. I want to give a big, heartfelt THANK YOU to Mighty Miller for ALL of the wonderful things she does.

Greg Johnson, parent
