The North Platte Public Schools Foundation in conjunction with North Platte Public Schools is excited to announce that Tina Hanson was awarded February Staff Person of the Month.


Tina is the Title Teacher at Cody Elementary.  A graduate of UNL, she has been in the education profession for 21 years and working in the North Platte School District since 2016.  Before moving to North Platte she taught in the Bellevue Public Schools for 13 years, which included 2nd, third and Title positions.  At Cody, Tina is involved with leading staff trainings, is the building CIP leader and even volunteers as the daily crossing guard in order to build relationships with students and parents.


Tina was nominated by Cody Principal Mr. Jeff Nemecek.  Her nomination read; “Hands down, Tina Hanson, Title I Teacher at Cody Elementary, deserves to be recognized as the Teacher/Staff person of the month. Tina is a Great Title I instructor and is always willing to share her Greatness with her fellow Title I teachers in the district as well as all other District staff members as well.”  


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 Lady Bug Crossing Daycare, 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.
