๐ŸŒŸ Staff Spotlight: Meet Lula Kersteiner! ๐ŸŒŸ If you haven't met Lu yet, you're truly missing out! Lula Kersteiner shines as the administrative assistant at Parkwood Elementary, and we're thrilled to feature her in our Staff Spotlight this week. With nearly 25 years of dedication to our district, Lu's journey has been shaped by the wisdom and kindness of influential mentors like Sue Bamford and Vicki Keivel, who have inspired and guided her along the way. When asked about her favorite BCS memory, she said, " After all this time, there are so many. But being 'a security blanket' for a young girl tops her list. "The girl was anxious about going to class, so she would stop in every day to hug her. I would tell her she was going to have a great day! She would smile and go to class." We also asked her what it means to be a member of the Creek family, and she said, "The saying that it takes a village is so very true today. We may not know what is going on in a child's life, but teachers, counselors, office staff, and administrators all working together to guide our children to be good citizens, friends, and classmates is so important. I am very thankful to be part of the BCS and Parkwood community. I hope I have helped make a difference in some small way." Beyond her dedicated work, Lu enjoys exploring the great outdoors with her husband and their beloved dog, Molly. Whether it's soaking in the beauty of Lake Erie or adventuring through Ohio and Kentucky State Park lodges, Lu's passion for travel and adventure keeps the roads hot, as her husband fondly remarks. Thank you, Lu, for your unwavering commitment and heartfelt contributions to our school community. You truly embody the spirit of excellence and compassion that defines Parkwood Elementary! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿงก

We highlight Jenn Courter, a 5th-grade ELA and social studies teacher at Fairbrook Elementary, for our weekly staff spotlight. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ–ค Jenn has been with the district for seven years and says her career has been most influenced by those she has had the opportunity to co-teach with. "They have pushed me to find new ways to challenge our students and brought joy to my day-to-day life. I could not do my job without them." Her favorite thing about working at BCS is seeing her students, old and new, achieve wonderful things as they grow and move through the Beavercreek school system. Jenn says, "The community at Fairbrook has inspired me to be more involved with Beavercreek in and outside of the school. Not only have I built a solid foundation in Beavercreek, but my family has as well. Finally, Jenn enjoys reading and hiking in nature when not in a classroom. #beavercreeksbest #staffspotlight

Preschool loves mittens! Not only are they fun for art projects, but they help encourage independence because they are easier for little ones to put on themselves with no help. They also keep hands warmer with fingers being together.

If you don't already know him, meet Mr. Seilhamer! He is this week's Staff Spotlight. Mr. Seilhamer is a 7th and 8th-grade science teacher at Ankeney Middle School and the head girls' basketball coach. He has spent 22 years in the district already. When asked who has been the most influential person in his career, he said, "My wife and kids because I never want to let them down." About his students, he hopes they can learn from him how to be kind and empathic because you never know what someone else might be going through. If there is one thing he wishes more people knew about BCS, it is how much our staff goes above and beyond to provide a great learning experience for all our students.

Today, we highlight Brian Shively, our transportation administrative assistant for our staff spotlight.
