“Above and beyond” staff members for Employees of the Month for February are teacher Hanna Burleson and custodian Danny Edgecomb. Employees of the month exhibit positivity, “above and beyond” attitudes and/or have recently completed a task of significance for their building.
Hanna is currently in her fourth year of her LPS career at R.A. Long where she teaches science. She is known to be genuine and compassionate; she takes the time to get to know her students. Her nominator noted that after instructing her students, Hanna observed one struggling with the concepts. She then assisted them individually to ensure student success—this type of effort is what makes Hanna such an outstanding educator.
Danny started his LPS career in 2003 as substitute and transitioned into a permanent custodian position in 2006. Since he first started, he consistently goes beyond his job duties. He takes pride in a job well done. An Olympic team member notes that Danny keeps the floors looking pristine and the windows clean and shiny. If a teacher requests something, he assists immediately and always with a smile. Danny also anticipates the needs of teachers and seeks them out to ask if they are in need of anything.
