The outstanding school-Based professional employees recognized for 2021

2021 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee 

margaret sislerMargaret Sisler
School Based Technology Specialist
Westfield High School, Region 5

“What do we want students to know and do?” Margaret focuses on student learning above all else, stepping into conversations with this phrase as she helps educators plan. She leads with empathy and in service of others, supporting their growth regardless of their starting point. The lens she brings to every conversation is a focus on what is best for students. She works to build strong relationships to improve and disrupt systems and traditions that are not yet serving all learners. Margaret is a learner and often brings an idea from a book, podcast or conversation to teachers and teams. She connects ideas and people. Her vulnerability and transparency invite others to also be vulnerable, take risks and grow tremendously.

2021 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee Finalist   

jennifer coryJennifer Cory
School Based Technology Specialist
Annandale High School, Region 2

At Annandale, Jen is committed to supporting a diverse community of learners. While the pandemic had schools scrambling to create structures and supports for their staff and students, Jen had already been building these structures for years, providing multiple professional development opportunities anchored in collaboration in teams and across subject areas, and facilitating cooperative learning among staff. When schools across the nation shut down, Jen knew that organization would be a challenge for students during virtual learning so she created a Virtual Learning Hub which allowed students to easily access all of their classes. The Hub also allowed teachers to build open communication with students and their families and was replicated by elementary and secondary schools alike.

2021 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee Finalist     

Michael R. HenrichMichael R. Henrich
Systems of Support Advisor
West Potomac High School, Region 3

Mike strives to keep students who are traditionally disconnected engaged in school. Through individualized attention, he works with students to build a positive vision of themselves in both the short and long term. In this year of virtual learning, Mike brought school to our families by making over two hundred home visits. He initiates and manages additional academic and social encouragement through academic support, restorative student culture and whole class groups. By streamlining student information through weekly kidtalks, he brought counseling, administration, and clinical leaders together to coordinate efforts on behalf of the students. Using attendance and grade data, he was able to strategically target under-performing students and groups.

2021 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee Finalist

Laura KingLaura King
School Based Technology Specialist
Hunters Woods Elementary School, Region 1

Laura has an automatic, adamant commitment to student and teacher success. The words “no” and “it can’t be done” simply do not exist in her vocabulary. Her door is always open, and she greets everyone with a delightful smile, a kind heart, and endless patience. Laura takes the time to make genuine connections with every student, colleague, family and community member she encounters. She lifts everyone up, celebrates every individual, and works to ensure that they have what they need to thrive. Her mentorship has brightened not only the Hunters Woods Community, but FCPS as a whole. She is a “marigold” and someone that students, families, and staff know they can count on.
