Ms. Tufts is the staff person of the month. Several faculty members had this to say:
"Phoebe cares so much about her students! She is dedicated, kind, helpful, and considerate. She never seems to have a "bad day." Her bright smile and warm nature put others at ease. She goes above and beyond with care for her students. For her, teaching is truly a calling."
"This time of year is tough. Staff and students are tired and ready to be done. The energy level is running low. Just when I think the day is dragging along someone pops up out of nowhere with a happy smile and a pleasant greeting...that someone is Phoebe Tufts. I recommend her for Staff Member of the Month for her positive outlook and constant smile and energy she brings to those around her. She is dedicated to helping her students achieve greatness and will go out of her way to make sure she has provided every tool necessary for that to happen. Phoebe is an inspiration to others. Staff and students are so lucky she returned to Kettle Run High School."
"Phoebe is a tireless educator and extremely compassionate person who is very deserving of this recognition. Phoebe has had the diligence, patience and phenomenal understanding to grace the math department during lunch. Many others have attempted such a feat, but as in all things, Phoebe shines and makes us better people by her presence and still has the time and energy to be a most brilliant teacher."
Congratulations Ms. Tufts!
