McMicken Heights teacher Arnel Hadzic is engaging, energetic and knows how to get his students to learn. His students love and respect him.

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.
Amin is amazing. His work in the family center this year has been so needed and appreciated. On many days he was the only person on-site to help our most vulnerable families with questions and enrollment.
