Hamilton-Holmes Middle School would like to recognize Mrs. Tina Oberg as the Employee of the Month for March.  Mrs. Oberg is a strong and supportive mentor to her students.  She works to develop and mold their creativity while inspiring their appreciation for the arts. The artwork Mrs. Oberg’s students create add character to our school and help brighten the hallways.

Outside of the classroom, Mrs. Oberg works to encourage and facilitate opportunities for our students to be actively involved in the community.  Most recently, Mrs. Oberg helped sponsor the Pennies for Pet fundraiser to support the rescue efforts of the Regional Animal Shelter.  In addition to organizing the fundraiser, Mrs. Oberg designed a dog themed tally board to help the grade levels document their progress.  Based on Mrs. Oberg’s efforts, our school was able to donate over a thousand dollars to the animal shelter.  We want to thank Mrs. Oberg for the positive impact she has on our school and community and congratulate her for being named the March Employee of the Month.

T.Abramson

Acquinton Elementary School
Tia Abramson

Acquinton Elementary School is pleased to honor Mrs. Tia Abramson as Employee of the Month.  Mrs. Abramson is a special education teacher and is devoted to helping her students be the best they can be. Colleagues say she takes “Learning Personally,” by making it her goal to ensure each and every student in her class reaches their individual potential.  Mrs. Abramson sets high expectations for her students and provides them with the tools they need to reach their goals.  She gets to know every student and their individual strengths and weaknesses.

She collects, disaggregates and summarizes data to determine exactly what each student needs but doesn’t just teach them academics. She strives to help each of her kids be successful academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally, even adding yoga to their daily routine. In addition, when Mrs. Abramson was asked to take on additional duties to ensure all students receive services that best fit their needs, she did so without hesitation.  She always maintains a professional demeanor and finds a professional way to discuss sensitive topics. AES is thankful for Mrs. Abramson and her dedication to our students.
