Employee of the 4th Quarter
Neil Armstrong Elementary
Colleen is someone who puts others before herself all the time. She is always willing to do anything she can to support students and staff. She is positive and uplifting and constantly using her creative side in the school, to acknowledge others and provide some humor. We are lucky to have someone as caring, thoughtful and supportive working in our building as Colleen. The versatility Colleen provides is unmatched as she is able to teach a Library class, teach a class in the Tech Lab, pull extension groups, work with MTSS groups, support technology in classrooms, help lead committees, encourage staff gatherings, offering book clubs and works in our after school program. She does all this and never says one negative word.
We are fortunate Colleen has chosen to share her talents with students, staff and families at Neil Armstrong and in the Bettendorf Community School District.
