This teacher's kindness creates confidence in her students, and this lead custodian's efficient and effective skills stand out, said JoAnne Bindell, principal at Mountain View Elementary School. Bindell selected the two as the Humboldt Unified School District Certified and Classified Employees of the Month.

Bindell nominated JoAnn Hayden, extended resource teacher for grades K-3 students, and Jerry Frank, lead custodian, for the honor, and presented them to the HUSD governing board at its Aug. 13 meeting.

Frank has worked for the district for 18 years, and Bindell had a long list of the duties and responsibilities that he completes in a "consistent, reliable and competent" manner. He shares positive relationships with staff and students, and they respect his leadership role, she said.

"Jerry has been a devoted colleague. He demonstrates a comprehensive knowledge of this position and a commitment to the goals and programs at Mountain View," Bindell said.

Frank's family share his vocation. His son is lead maintenance at Liberty Traditional School and his wife is night custodian at Coyote Springs Elementary School.

Hayden got a late start in her public school education career, becoming certified at age 54 after teaching religious classes during her 40s. She started with HUSD as a substitute teacher, and hired on as a resource teacher at Mountain View the following year. In addition to her teaching duties, Hayden returned to school and completed a master's degree in school administration two years ago.

Bindell said Hayden's knowledge of her students in both academic and emotional arenas is impressive.

"It's obvious that she takes the time to get to know them at a level Cthat even some parents do not see," Bindell said. "She has energy, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude that helps to motivate both students and teaching staff."

The district honors two employees from each school site, plus transportation and food and nutrition departments, during the year. In addition, it recognizes a Volunteer of the Month.
