Oxford Intermediate School
“I am honored to be selected Employee of the Week, especially considering that I work with so many incredible educators who are all deserving of this honor. It is a joy to work with great people who give everything they have to inspire our students to be the best they can be!”
The Oxford School District is proud to recognize Oxford Intermediate School behavior specialist Kate Gross as our Employee of the Week. Mrs. Gross helps make our district a great place to work and learn.
Here’s what Oxford Intermediate School has to say about Mrs. Gross:
“As our new full-time behavior specialist, Kate has fit right in at OIS by positively working one-on-one with her students while making sure she fully communicates with the teachers. She is really on top of our students’ behavior plans and we are all glad she is at OIS!”
“Since joining our staff, Kate has worked diligently to help everyone at OIS. She cares deeply for her students, but also for helping teachers and creating a positive culture.”
“Mrs. Gross goes above and beyond to reach her students, support teachers, and help cultivate a climate of positivity and respect at OIS. She tackles some of our school’s toughest problems and most challenging kids with grace, kindness, and incredible persistence.”
“Kate is always one text, email, or phone call away when it comes to helping students. She’s been a great addition to our school environment!”
“Mrs. Gross does such an amazing job with all of her students and working on their behavior. She works so well with the teachers and helps them with each student that is having trouble. I have seen so much success with the behavior tier students this year because of Mrs. Gross.”
“She has been such a great mentor and inspiration. She really loves the kids, and you can see that in how much time she puts in!”
“Kate is really ‘tuned in’ to her students. Her communication with the teachers about her students’ progress has helped solve classroom behavior issues tremendously! You can tell she works with her heart. We love Kate!”
“Kate is the best behavior specialist I have ever worked with. She cares so much for the students she works with, but also for all the other kids she comes in contact with. She is eager to help teachers in any way to see positive effects at OIS.”
“Kate has made huge strides in building relationships with a new set of teachers/staff, and a new set of students while remaining calm, patient and positive. Kate goes above and beyond to promote PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports) and is open to new strategies to get results with behavior students. I admire her persistence, positivity and poise (calm under pressure)!”
Congratulations, Mrs. Gross! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.
