Fri, 10/21/2016 - 9:56am

We are excited to announce the October 2016 Champaign Unit 4 School District Staff Spotlight winner: 

Claire Vail, Special Education Teacher at Centennial High School 

We look forward to honoring her at the Monday, October 24 Board of Education Meeting at 6 p.m. at the Mellon Administrative Center. 

Ondine Gross, Ms. Vail's nominator, wrote the following excerpt as part of her submission: 
I am an amazed onlooker as I witness the transformation of Claire's students into sturdy adults who are college and career ready. Claire shares her expertise of autism openly and generously, whether you are a parent of a student in her program, or anybody else. For Claire, there is no 8-4 or summer break- she is always ready to help anyone who asks. Now in her tenth year, I can think of no greater way to honor Claire than shining the spotlight on her steadfast and outstanding service to our students, staff, and families. We are truly blessed to have Claire at Centennial. 

Please consider nominating an outstanding Unit 4 staff member today! Each nomination is kept in the running for Staff Spotlight for 3 months from its submission date. Forms and directions on how to submit are available the following page on the Unit 4 website:
