We love getting email about the great things that happen. If you want to publicly recognize one the employees in the Tech Department, please send me a Shout Out!

Team B – Stephen Flaig

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate our Tech, Stephen Flaig.
We had a request from a school for a video from an incident on Friday.
Unfortunately, we could not download it from the hard drive.
We called Stephen and he took that hard drive apart and worked his magic, retrieving the video and we sent it to the school. We certainly would have given up. His tenacity and knowledge is much appreciated!
His knowledge, expertise and willingness to help is outstanding.  He basically performed open heart surgery on the unit with success.  Thank you Stephen, I really appreciate you!!

Team C – Rob Perna

A shout out to Rob Perna who assisted in getting the technology functioning at Salina intermediate for the student leader ship group today.
Many thanks, Rob.

Tech Coaches – Amy Gwzidz

I just want to extend a huge thank you to you. You inspire me and make my job interesting and fun. Thank you for listening to me ramble through my ideas and help me to distill them into something that makes sense. I’m so excited to start the vlogs on Monday. I’ve already shared the idea with about a dozen people at Haigh after drinking 2 cups of coffee so they’re either thinking I’m inspired or nuts.

Bob & Chris

I just want to say that your staff members, Bob Harrison and Chris Kenniberg have always gone above and beyond so much to help me with tech in the classroom! I know you already know how great they are but I thought I would write their direct supervisor. They go out of the way to help whenever they can and in a timely manner. they are such a credit to our district! Keep up the good work.

Team C

I want to send a note of appreciation for the assistance of Gordon Scannell.  He went above and beyond to address an immediate issue concerning my computer and he resolved it with kindness and efficiency.  He stayed after school late to make sure the job was complete and the next day returned to answer any questions I had

Tech Coaches – Amy Gwizdz

I was in our 4/5 split today during math and saw students working on something with embedded videos about fractions as well as activities – loved it! I asked the teacher about it and she said it was from hyperdocs and(another teacher) had learned about it from you. She shared the links with me to watch. A little later, I get a text from (another teacher) saying she is introducing something new if I want to stop by. She was introducing hyperdocs using a Science activity.

Teachers, students and I were completely engaged and loved it! We are discussing how to get the info to the rest of the staff. Possibly an upcoming staff meeting.
Your work here at Long is contributing directly to the success of our staff and students. Thank you so much!!!

Team 17

Scott Tobias has come through for us once again…we have usernames and passwords to access the chrome books, as well as wifi codes from the College.  Addtionally, Scott has uploaded Dani’s list of names for the SRI.  I greatly appreciate his work and assistance as we’ve tried to get this rather large task accomplished.  

Team 17

I would like to thank whoever is responsible for changing everything to one password. Thank you! 

Team C

Thank you for finding the charging cord for my classroom microphone. I really appreciate that you hunted one down and hooked it up. 

Thanks for the help with the document reader too. 

Team 17

I would like to thank you for suggesting the schools that might have extra light bulbs for my Epson projector.  The staff at O.L. Smith Middle School was very generous to lend me a bulb. 

Also, thank you for sending out the technician, Jamal, to evaluate the situation.  

I am truly fortunate to work in a district that supplies the tools needed to educate our students.

Team A:

I just wanted to send a quick “Thank You!” to you and Margie for the absolute quickest computer help!! I submitted  the ticket yesterday afternoon and Margie has already been here this morning fixing my computer and printer.  

The fast service is greatly appreciated and makes for a great start to the school year!

Team A:

Thank you for every thing this year Margie!!  You have been a God send!!  Every time we get in a jam in my lab, you seem to bail us out!!  You always do the work quickly and efficiently!!  I don’t know how you manage to finish so fast…most of the time before we even get to school in the morning!!  Keep up the great work Margie and try to have a wonderful summer!

Troy, I hope that you’ll keep Margie at our school……APPLEASE and thank you!!  ?

Tech Coaches:

Bob Harrison has been a valued Tech Coach   He is very knowledgeable of all things iLearn related.  Bob has made sure he is available when needed, often coming to my classroom with very short notice to troubleshoot an issue. 

The tech coach position has been money well spent!

Bob deserves an Attaboy for a job well done.
