February Teacher, Support Staff,
and Website of the Month!
Exceptional teachers, staff members, and interactive communication channels are the backbone of our great school. When
we have these essential elements in place, they allow us to provide the type of teaching and learning experiences for our
students that create the level of readiness needed for high school, college, and tomorrow s high demand jobs. Teachers and
Support Staff deserve all the recognition that we can give them. On that note, we are proud to announce the February Out-
standing Teacher, Staff Member, and Website of the Month. With these recognitions, teachers and staff members will have a
sign hung above their classroom door, a feature on the website, a formal presentation in front of their students, preferred
parking for the recognition period, a spotlight in the newsletter, and a feature on the school's blog, Facebook page, and
twitter feed.
Teacher of the Month - Mrs. Shannon Avery
Mrs. Avery is a Special Education teacher whose expertise is students with emotional dis-
abilities. She has an extremely high level of patience and this translates into a very strong
rapport with her students. Her students constantly seek her guidance and advice as they
transition to other classrooms. Visiting her classroom would reveal a highly-structured en-
vironment where all students are valued and respected, even as Mrs. Avery maintains a
full schedule of student conferences and parent meetings. Irmo Middle is proud to call Mrs.
Avery our Teacher of the Month. Congratulations!
Support Staff of the Month - Domi Kyle
Mrs. Kyle is a scheduling secretary at Irmo Middle. Her job requires a balancing of parent,
teacher, student, and district personnel schedules all while providing quaility customer
service to all involved. Mrs. Kyle consistently per-
forms her tasks at the highest level and is a valu-
able member of the Irmo Middle team. Often-
times, Mrs. Kyle is asked to go beyond her normal
duties by covering classes, monitoring students,
or performing duties in the front office. We are
excited to announce Mrs. Kyle as our Support
Staff of the Month!
Website of the Month - Julie
Anderson
Mrs. Anderson teaches Geometry and Algebra 1 at Irmo Middle. One look at her
website shows just how committed she is to reaching students of all learning styles
and backgrounds through the wonders of
technology. Students can review class
notes, locate numerous math-related web-
sites, apply their skills on the virtual calcu-
lator, and identify upcoming class projects and deadlines. Mrs. Anderson's insistence
upon using her website as
a companion piece to regular class time guarantees that
her students have every opportunity to master the concepts and benchmarks that
translate into autentic learning experiences. Irmo Middle proudly salutes Mrs. Ander-
son as the winner of February's Website of the Month!
These educators not only perform their respective jobs extremely well, they go
above and beyond when called upon to go the extra mile. All three consistently ex-
hibit the #IrmoStrong spirit both in and out of the classroom. Irmo Middle School is
both very appreciative and extremely lucky to count these professionals among our
faculty. Join us in congratulating them on their accomplishments.
