November Staff Member of the Month

Congratulations to the "District 90/Kunkel Wittenauer Group" Support Staff Member of the Month, Jenny Spengler!

As Assistant to the Director of Early Learning Programs, Jenny Spengler is an integral part of District 90 Early Learning programs. Her extensive knowledge on child development and early childhood education is an asset to the overall programming of the preschool and birth to age three programs. She is an instructional leader, works toward implementing collaborative job embedded professional learning routines for the staff, leads staff in creating child centered learning environments, plans and organizes a strong parent involvement program for our grant funded programs, assists in maintaining fiscal oversight for Title, Birth to Three, Preschool for All, Tuition preschool, and Before and Care programs, and assists in maintaining all records and required reports.Jenny approaches each day with a positive attitude and flexibility.

Director of Early Learning Gina Harding said, "I have witnessed Jenny assist teachers, building principals, secretaries, and parents without hesitation. She prioritizes the needs of those around her with the understanding that 'her work' will have to come later. She demonstrates the highest level of professional at all times and is a model for others to follow. This Fall, I had the privilege of watching Jenny step into the lead role for the Early Learning programs during my absence. She led with confidence, professionalism, and commitment. Jenny stepped into a challenging role with poise and without hesitation. I am confident in saying that our school year started successfully due to her high level of job performance. District 90 is not only fortunate to have Jenny on staff, but I am truly fortunate to have such a strong leader by my side leading our early learning programs."

We congratulate Mrs. Spengler and thank Kunkel Wittenauer Group for their generous sponsorship of this month's D90 staff awards program!
