The North Platte Public Schools Foundation in conjunction with North Platte Public Schools is excited to announce that Bonnie Feeney was awarded the first staff member of the new year for the 2018-2019 school year.
Bonnie is a 6th grade math teacher at Madison Middle School. She has worked for the North Platte Public School District since 1997. She earned her Bachelors in Education from UNK with a double major in Elementary Education and Special Education (Mild/Moderate). She then earned her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction through Doane College. She has taught both Special Education and 6th grade Science, Math and Social Studies. Her favorite subjects in school were Science and Math and she says she is grateful to have had the opportunity to teach both of them at Madison.
Bonnie was nominated by her principal Danny McMurtry. McMurtry stated that Bonnie is willing to go to bat for anyone who needs her. “She accepts all challenges and is the first one to take charge when something needs to get done.” he said.
The North Platte Public Schools and North Platte Public Schools foundation developed the Staff recognition promotion to provide incentives for deserving teachers and support staff. The program is designed to recognize outstanding teachers and support staff for their contributions to NPPS. The nomination symbolizes the esteem and appreciation that everyone has for our school district employees. Teachers are rewarded with a gift basket sponsored this month by Whitetail Screen Print, balloons and a gift card to the Bulldog store at NPHS from the Foundation and a bouquet of flowers donated by Prairie Friends and Flowers. The North Platte Public Schools Foundation is facilitating the program and takes nominations from principals and administration. Staff members are awarded monthly throughout the school year and are recognized at the annual Education After Hours which will be held April 26th, 2019.
