Three District Staff Members Receive Big Honors!

Everyday, Green Bay Area Public School District staff members work hard to educate the children of the community. Educators don’t enter the profession looking for recognition, in fact, the biggest reward for an educator is to have a grown student come back and say “thank you.”  Most adults can think of a teacher or school staff member that made a difference in their lives.

However, public recognition is always more than welcome! Three staff members recently received recognition for their work in the district:

  • Press Gazette Person of the Year – Alison Draheim, family and community resource and homeless coordinator, District Office
    Alison works tirelessly with the families befallen with homelessness, connecting them with the community resources needed to provide support for basic needs, as well as ensuring their children make it to school.
  • Current’s Future 15 & Young Professional Awards –
    • Ned Dorff, special education teacher, Franklin Middle School
      Ned works with special education students at Franklin Middle School, is the co-chair of the district’s Green Team, a city alderman, active in his neighborhood association, started several community gardens in the city, and has traveled to Africa to build a school and provide educational training.
    • Claudia Orr, principal, Eisenhower Elementary School
      Claudia has turned Eisenhower Elementary into a model school. She and her staff started a Saturday school program to help students suceed in reading and math. Claudia is the only Wisconsin winner of the 2010 Milken Family Foundation Award, a prestigious national award.
