North Platte Public Schools awards Staff Member of the Month

The North Platte Public Schools Foundation in conjunction with North Platte Public schools is excited to announce that Janette Kammerer is being honored as the NPPS Big Award Bulldog Staff member of the month for March. Janette is the music teacher at Eisenhower and Washington


"Both of my Grandfathers were very musically inclined with the abilities of singing and playing the guitar. I have always loved music and I love teaching.  Teaching music is truly a passion of mine. I believe that every child should have music education. Not to make them the next star but to help them be more human.  Music is the universal language that touches every single one of us." says Janette. Janette has her Bachelor’s in Education with a K-12 Vocal /Instrumental endorsement from Chadron State College and in 2003 she received a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College.  Janette was nominated by Principal Greg Fruhwirth.


The North Platte Public Schools and North Platte Public Schools foundation developed the BIG 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, balloons and a gift card to the Bulldog store at NPHS.  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 will be recognized at the end of the year Education After Hours in the spring.
