October Employees of the Month

John Hancock has been a valued Kessler team member since he joined Longview Public Schools in 2016. It’s noted that he has embraced Conscious Discipline and developed his ability to be patient, kind, and maintain a positive attitude. He has gone out of his way to stop and help students outside of his grade level; sharing his calm and positive attitude with them when needed most.

Cindy Street has been a long-time Longview Public Schools team member, lending her expertise to the transportation department since 1984. She does an amazing job getting Pervasive students rides on short notice to and from school at times that are out of the norm. Cindy can be contacted any time of day and will be able to find a bus to support our students quickly with a can-do attitude, even when it’s going to be tough. She will be sorely missed when she retires in 2019.

September Employees of the Month

Julie Schneider (on the left) has been a Longview Schools team member for over 20 years, and a good portion of that time has been spent at Broadway Early Learning Center. She is on the PTO committee, Site Based Committee, the Trelis Team, and has many other “hats” she wears at the campus. Julie has so much history and knowledge when it comes to connecting with Broadway families. She truly understands how impactful early intervention can be for our students. Her nominator referred to her as a “gem” and feels very lucky to have her on the team.

Theresa Bru (on the right)  has been a para educator since 2011 when she started at Cascade Middle School, eventually moving to Kessler. Theresa is quick to spot and address student needs and always does so with a smile. She has made it a smooth transition for many students who have moved back to Kessler with the opening of a new Extensive Support Program. Her nominator noted that, “Theresa is amazing!”

May Employees of the Month

Principal Noma Hudson, left, took over the principal post at Kessler Elementary School this year and has had a positive influence on the climate making it feel more united. Discipline problems are handled promptly and in a positive manner. Student achievement is a priority and Noma instills the attitude that all children are learners.

Noma began her time with LPS in 1983 as an English teacher. She spent a number of years as a valuable team member at Mark Morris High School and serving as LEA President. In more recent years, she has served as an assistant principal and principal at RAL, CVG, and Cascade.


Mark Morris custodian Eileen Goodwin, right, has been an invaluable team member in both food service and operations since 2010. She is currently a custodian at Mark Morris and her flexibility and willingness to help beyond her assigned responsibilities are greatly appreciated. She goes above and beyond expectations of the job on a daily basis. Safety and security of the building are a responsibility of this position that she takes as seriously as the cleanliness of the building. Without employees like Eileen who are willing to sub in other positions we would not have such a smooth transition when unplanned absences (morning call ins) happen in the Operations Department.
