El Dorado Middle School Sixth Grade ELA Teacher Gina Meyer was named the Quarter One USD 490 Employee of the Quarter on October 21.
Mrs. Meyer was nominated for the compassion she shows for her students.
"She sat for over an hour and spoke to my son about how life choices now will affect his future," the nominator said. "Mrs. Meyer cared enough to take the time to love my child."
The nomination said that the student is now in high school and is making better life choices as a result of Mrs. Meyer's efforts.
The Employee of the Quarter awards are sponsored by Don Hattan of El Dorado. They have generously provided a wrapped Ford Equinox for the Employee of the Quarter to drive in celebration of their outstanding service to the district.
Quarter two nominations are now open. Anyone can nominate a USD 490 staff member, or SPED employee who works in USD 490 schools by visiting our Employee of the Quarter nomination page: https://www.eldoradoschools.org/News/employeeofthequarter/
