Paulla demonstrates a positive attitude in all aspects of her life. She is the first person to find the “good” in any situation—she is always willing to try a new way, find a better solution, and make things work so that her students and her colleagues can be successful. She is also an enthusiastic and engaging teacher who makes learning fun for all of her students. She provides our students with a well-rounded music education and the encouragement to discover their own connections to music. Paulla works hard to create meaningful relationships with some of our most hard to reach students, giving them opportunities to thrive and to see their worth in the school community and beyond.
It is truly a joy to work with Paulla and to witness how she inspires her students and fellow staff members to be the best they can be. Her positivity is contagious!

Terry Goodall is an amazing professional and friend to all. She conducts her work with a servant spirit and is helpful to anyone who asks her for assistance. Terry is giving, caring and generous with her time and talents. Recently she spent her evenings making masks to protect district staff. She is thorough in all her work and her attention to detail has been a lifesaver to more than one student or staff member. She has had a tremendous impact on students and staff within the district.
Debbie is very caring and compassionate. She greets students and staff with a smile every day. She knows all the students' names and works to get to know their interests as well. Debbie goes above and beyond for everyone. She is such a joy to be around and brightens everyone's day. We are very fortunate to have Debbie on our staff!
