Employee of the Month


King William County Schools


King William High School

As a staff at King William High School we have accomplished a lot this year and for that reason I want to recognize our entire staff as the "Employee of the Month." From the managerial side we have rolled out Chromebooks and Schoology as smoothly as possible. This only happens with an entire staff on board. There are countless unsung heroes who worked on spreadsheets, covered classes, worked with students, attended professional development sessions, and jumped in to help wherever needed.


Hamilton Holmes Middle School

Most importantly, Barbara Taylor strives to build relationships with her students and all of her colleagues.  We can always depend on Ms. Taylor to provide her expertise in any given situation.  While she represents our school as the chairperson for the Student Teacher Assistance Team, Barbara has offered her leadership as the interim chair for the Special Education Department.  Her peers describe her as a dedicated and compassionate educator.  Ms. Barbara Taylor is an invaluable member to the Hamilton-Holmes team, and we thank her for her service.
