Ms. Kris Barshinger, MS Teacher AND Ms. Amy Clark, MS Teacher
Ms. Clark and Ms. Barshinger were nominated by Middle School Principal, Mr. Anthony Campbell
Kris and Amy have been instrumental in helping us to implement Leader in Me practices at the Middle School. They both serve as the Lighthouse Coordinators who work closely with building administrators and the Leader in Me Coach to establish goals and action plans for the Middle School program. They help to lead the Lighthouse Team, which consists of 12 other faculty members who help to facilitate four Action Teams across the building. Over the summer, Kris and Amy met to plan steps for the Lighthouse Team implementation and refocus on student and staff expectations. During the beginning of the school year, they helped lead the Lighthouse Team and Action Teams toward achieving these goals. They meet and plan regularly with each other, Lighthouse Team Members, and administrators to help ensure the successful implementation of Leader in Me at the Middle School.
