Mr. Hoffman: I think this school year has gone great and there has been a lot of student positivity this year. Like a lot of positives in schools activities like speech and basketball. There has been a lot of positivity in the new staff like Mr. Steenhoek, Mrs. Herring, Mr. Smith, and more. I’m happy that they have been working hard to become better professionals and I like how they’re getting into the coaching part of the school as well.
Mrs. Burgess: The halls of Montezuma have been buzzing with smiles, eye contact and positive interactions throughout this year. It is great seeing so much school enthusiasm for all the hard work our students put into the classroom and in the extra-curricular activities. Our students have encouraged each other while bringing out the best in each other.
This year is definitely a year that has flown by and it has been filled with greatness around every corner. The last quarter will end with many special moments and I am eager to finish this year strong.
Ms. Dejong: I have had a wonderful first year here in Montezuma! The students and community have been extremely welcoming and I am constantly impressed by the amount of talent there is here. I am already looking forward to next year!
Mrs. Henkle: I think it has gone well so far. I have only been here since January so only this semester, but everyone has been very welcoming and supportive. Students have adapted really well to the change of having a new teacher in the middle of the year. I’m loving it here at Montezuma.
Mr. O'Brien: This year has gone the best out of the 5 years I’ve been teaching, and I really look forward to next year. This has been my first year as an actual teacher, but I have been a teachers associate in prior years.
Mr. Steenhoek: I feel like this year has gone really well. I would say it has been really fun to get to know these kids in this first year, Learning how to work with the students better as we go, and It’s been fun to watch other teachers and administration and their excitement about creating a strong culture at the school.
Mr. Burgess: Its been a great school year considering the challenges the weather has had for us. The students here are great to work with both in and out of the classroom. Montezuma is an amazing school, and I enjoy watching student and staff here excel. I’m looking forward to a great end to the school year.
