Golden Acorn and Outstanding Educators Award.

Award Recipients for Outstanding Educator are Coleen Altermott and Sydney Fee

Coleen Altermott

Coleen Altermott makes math fun for the students! She tries different ways to explain the material so that all the students can understand the concepts. And, she loves Star Wars!  

Students love her and appreciate her spirit.  They will often find her at school-sponsored events cheering on students louder than their own parents.  She is a great team player, shares her ideas with others, recognizes when issues are present and provides solutions rather than simply offering a complaint.

Ms. Altermott works with and alongside her students to make sure they progress through her math courses. She makes herself available to her students.

She is really nice and goes out of her way to help kids who may be falling behind in the coursework. 

 

Sydney Fee

She has gone above and beyond celebrating the students all year round and cares about all the little things. She works nights and weekends (even with small children at home) to support the ASB and to make sure they get everything done they need to do for events. She is also a super supporter of the PTSA and helps to bring parents and students together! Thank you for all you do Mrs. Fee!

Syndey Fee lives and breaths Bothell spirit.  She is 100% an advocate for students, listens to them, and finds ways to seek and include their voices.  She allows students to lead, make mistakes, and learn from them which is much more authentic than simply telling them what to do and how.  She wears more blue and promotes more Bothell swag than anyone.  When staff members step down from advisor roles or support roles, Sydney steps in to fill them.  Sydney works hard to help staff through the dreaded budgeting process and does her best to share the importance of truly a student-led organization.

Golden Acorn Award 2019-2020
Jennifer Spanton

 
Jennifer did an amazing job orchestrating all of the staff appreciation meals this year! It’s a lot of hard work to coordinate and set up. I believe that she also volunteered as needed for other things that came up. 
 
Jennifer is always willing to help out whenever needed. She wasn’t sure how she would do with Staff Appreciation, but she nailed it and went above and beyond!  She is always smiling and blessing others by cheering up a room just walking into it.  She puts people at ease and always offers an ear and a hand!
 
Super cheerful and has great ideas! She’s very organized and prepared. We appreciate all her work for the students and the staff!
