Celebrating Our Outstanding Staff


The Ducky Awards is Superintendent Susan Enfield's fun way of recognizing staff for going above and beyond to advance Our Promise of knowing every student by name, strength and need. To nominate a colleague, send an email to Superintendent Enfield with the name of the individual and a brief paragraph on how they deliver on our promise.

Micaela White

Enrollment Manager Micaela White has been a huge support to the Enrollment Team with her districtwide systemic, transformative planning these past few years. The way she streamlined processes and provided leadership for on-going adjustments is very much appreciated.

Arnel Hadzic

McMicken Heights teacher Arnel Hadzic is engaging, energetic and knows how to get his students to learn. His students love and respect him. He finds a variety of tactics to spark their learning, from games to coming up with contests such as Jeopardy--complete with a suit and microphone. He is also well respected by his peers.

Michaela Reynolds Lopez

Michaela Reynolds-Lopez, WELS science teacher, does outstanding work for the students and staff at WELS. Michaela is so much more than a science teacher--she is an essential member of the instructional leadership team, assists with TLL meetings, organizes systems for the school and is a true advocate for students.

High Fives

Highline High Fives are a way for our staff to celebrate each other. Do you have a colleague who goes above and beyond? Or do you know a team or department who deserves some extra recognition? Show them some appreciation by nominating them for a Highline High Five. We'll post your nominations right here on our staff kudos page. 

Stephanie Stratton

Stephanie works above and beyond to bring joy to all of her students. She is a fierce advocate for our students' needs. Her lessons are well planned, culturally relevant, engaging, and meet the needs of our very diverse set of newcomer language learners.
