She has supported me as a building principal trying to figure things out in Skyward and I know she has been supporting everyone else throughout the district with the same needs. She has always been there for me and I really just can't thank her enough! Not once did she every seem too busy to help me even though I felt guilty calling her knowing she was extremely busy!

To: Brooke Bennett - Thomas Jefferson
From: Amy Marshall
SHOUT: The rapid release of Chromebooks during the pandemic made tracking them very difficult. Brooke took it upon herself to step up and try to organize and track them. It made the end of the year Chromebook return a smoother process. Thank you so much Brooke for stepping up whenever needed!
To: Brianna Skorvonski - Thomas Jefferson
From: April DeGroot
SHOUT: Brianna helped me put together my chrome chart, which was very time-consuming and really stressing me out! Not only did she help me put it together, but it is also amazingly organized.
