CSD Teacher and Staff Shout Outs!

  • This page is dedicated to appreciating CSD's outstanding teachers and staff. These shout outs were submitted by parents and students to recognize the great work our teachers and staff do every day to support our kids. These amazing CSD staff members live up to the CSD Vision, which states, "We will build the foundation for all children to be their best, achieve their dreams, and make the world a better place!"

    If you or your student would like to submit a shout out for one of our teachers or staff members, please feel free to email Sarah Jones, CSD Communications and Public Relations  Specialist, at sjones1@csdecatur.net. We also love photos, so if you have a great picture of your teacher and student, please share that with us! 

    Thank you to all our CSD teachers and staff!

    CSD Extra Mile Awards

    CSD staff members are nominated by their students each year for the CSD Extra Mile Awards sponsored by DEF. These nominations are made at the end of each school year. Normally, announce these award winners a few days before school starts at our annual Opening Day celebration, which is like a pep rally for our CSD teachers, administrators and staff to kick off each new school year. But, since we were not able to come together in 2020 for the usual opening day celebration, we are announcing the winners virtually! In this video, we will celebrate twelve tremendous staff members who have gone the extra mile for our students. To find out who are the 2020 Extra Mile Award Winners, please view the video below to hear directly from the students on why they nominated these twelve teachers and staff members for this award. If your student is interested in nominating their current teacher for the 2021 extra mile awards, be sure to watch for the announcement this spring on how to submit a nomination.


    School Shout out Section


    Each month, the District Dispatch will feature shoutouts from parents and students to our amazing teachers and staff at one of the ten different CSD schools. Every month we will feature shout outs from a different school. In August 2020, we are featuring Glennwood teachers and staff.  If you would like to shout out your child’s teacher, send an email to Sarah Jones at sjones1@csdecatur.net. Also at the end of the school year your child’s teacher for the Extra Mile award as mentioned in a story above. Keep an eye out for more information on how your student can nominate a teacher or staff member as we get closer to the end of the school year.

    Thank you again to all our teachers and staff members for all they do every day to go the extra mile for our CSD students.
