Danyel Bell, SpEd Aide, Pioneer's Classified Employee of the Year

Danyel is very good working with all students.  She is especially skilled working with the population of students that are in our SCLC program here on campus.  She knows how to work with a variety of students and can be counted on by many of her colleagues to jump in and provide assistance whenever needed.  Danyel is a model instructional aide and is a team player.

Danyel is one of our most dedicated employees.  She is rarely absent, but more than that when she is here, she gives more than 100%.  Danyel is assigned to the SCLC classroom and then goes to a general education classroom where she serves as classroom support.  In the SCLC setting, Danyel runs small groups, and helps maintain and manage behaviors of a variety of students based on their individual behavior plans.

Danyel is highly respected by her colleagues and all of the teachers she works with.  Many of her colleagues use her as a resource as she is a wealth of knowledge! Danyel consults with a number of Teachers, Special Education Teachers and other Instructional Aides throughout her day.

Congratulations to Danyel for being chosen as Pioneer's Classified Employee of the Year- a well deserved honor!
