TWIN FALLS — Two Vera C. O’Leary Middle School employees were recognized Monday as April employees of the month for the Twin Falls School District.

Each month, the school board honors workers — certified (such as teachers) and classified (such as paraprofessionals, secretaries and custodians) — from one or two schools.

Here’s who was recognized in April, with information from a school board packet:

Kelley Ramirez

Job: Drama teacher and student leadership adviser at Vera C. O’Leary Middle School

Pet peeve: “Individuals who just whine and don't do anything to improve or fix the situation.”

You have a 10 minute speech to give at a high school. What is the title?: “To live a balanced life: Work hard, but don't forget to play hard too.”

What word best describes you?: “Enthusiastic”

How do you want to be remembered?: “Kelley was a kind person who worked hard, played hard and made a positive impact on all the individuals with whom she came in contact.”

The favorite part of my day is: “Seeing kids getting out of their comfort zone, knowing that making mistakes is part of the learning process and students who support all their classmates at all different levels.”

Thomas Thompson

Job: Head custodian at Vera C. O’Leary Middle School
