Staff of the Month
Mr. Collins is one of the most honesty gentleman I know. You can always depend on him to give an honest word of advice in any situation whether it is to a student or a co-worker. In Mr. Collin’s personal life he is an upstanding, kind, and honest man, which shows through is family and his everyday life.
Charlie Collins is a trustworthy and honest individual. This shows both with his students and with other staff members. Charlie is always smiling, greeting students and staff in the hallway and is always looking at things in a positive light! Charles Collins, His nature is nurture and caring, he is genuine and shows kindness to kids in his class room.
Charlie makes it a point to greet ALL students in the hall by saying "Hello (student’s name)". Each student that passes by knows that Charlie cares and has an interest in that child. Charlie and I have discussed this and Charlie has expressed that this is something he does because it's something that he learned as a business man. Charlie stated that if a manager addresses and says hello to every employee and knows their name, the employee will perform better because they know the boss has an interest in them. Charlie not only wants to learn each students' name, he also strives to learn a little fact about each student so he can strike up a conversation with them and let them know he cares. Charlie Collins deserves this award.
He always has the time to listen and the ability to put things into perspective.
He constantly has a smile on his face and always gives complements with a smile on his face. (Parents, teachers, staff, and students). He treats everyone as they are important.
He offers/volunteers help to all and opens up the way for providing help and support.
He understands how to treat individuals and has an amazing sense of humor.
