For the month of December the STC High School Teacher of the Month award was given to Deb Lacina. Deb serves as a Special Education Teacher at the high school.
Deb's colleagues had this to say about her:
"Deb goes above and beyond for kids regardless of her caseload. She helps identify students who need services but will also give ideas and feedback for students who don't qualify for SpEd but need assistance in other areas. She is efficient and thorough with her assessments of students."
"Deb is always looking out for the best of her students. I have worked closely with Deb over the school year regarding what's best for her students. Deb often stays late at work and provides IEP meetings whenever it is convenient to her student's family. Deb works hard on providing the educational materials for her students. Deb has a positive attitude towards staff and students. I can always rely on Deb for help when needed."
"She works her butt off for her students and the staff in the Special Education department; which entails a lot of work behind the scenes that she does outside of school on her own time."
"She does her best to see her students' succeed and in most cases she goes above and beyond to help. She also heads the Special Education department and takes care of all the Para schedules."
