Here at AMS we have a Teacher Incentive Program. I had the chance to speak with Mr. Hooten (who is on the PBIS committee) about the program. Here are questions I asked about the program:
Why did you start the program?
The PBIS committee started the AMS Teacher Incentive Program.
We wanted to reward staff that were going above and beyond the call of duty.
What are some of the incentives?
Some of the incentives include gift certificates from local businesses, tickets to shows in the area, we've even had ROOTS Hummus donate tubs of hummus, and Dynamite Coffee donated bags of awesome coffee!
What is the program?
Once a week we recognize one staff member that exemplifies awesomeness at AMS. It could be in the classroom, somewhere in the building, on the field. We know that everyone in the building is doing their best all the time, but it’s a challenge to reward everyone all the time.
Who are some of the teachers?
It depends, it varies by grade level, content area, etc... on Friday we announce the winner for that week on the announcements.
Thank you Mr. Hooten for all of the information, and thank you to everyone who has donated! Our teachers deserve to be recognized!
