Thank you to everyone who nominated a staff member for the Lebanon Education Foundation's Employee of the Year. The three winners were selected from over 40 nominations. Help us congratulate one of the winners: Mrs. Becky Barnouski. Becky has been educating students for 37 years. She has spent her last 30 years teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade for Lebanon District #9. Becky earned her Bachelor's degree from SIU-C and began her teaching career with SIU-C Head Start. After receiving her Master's degree from SIU-E, she entered the public school system where she taught at Madison #12 and Smithton #130 before finding her home at LCUSD9. During her years at LCUSD9, Becky has been instrumental in managing the Pre-K grant, implementing best practices in the classroom, and mentoring. Becky has also served as union treasurer and has helped in the concession stand when needed. Becky describes Lebanon District #9 as her second family, one that she feels very lucky to have, which makes it very hard to say "good-bye" as she retired at the end of this school year. She plans to spend time with her husband, Anthony, taking time to travel more and they are both looking forward to a new grandbaby arriving in August!
Thank you to everyone who nominated a staff member for the Lebanon Education Foundation's Employee of the Year. The three winners were selected from over 40 nominations. Help us congratulate one of the winners: Mr. Michael Nelson. Michael Nelson just finished his first year at Lebanon High School. Michael started his teaching career in Arcola, IL and then taught and coached at Beecher City Jr./Sr. High School for six years. Michael left the classroom to serve as the youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Effingham, IL for three years before returning to the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year at Signal Hill School in Belleville, IL. He had the opportunity to come to Lebanon High School at the start of this year and did not hesitate to make the move to the district where his wife teaches kindergarten, his kids go to school, and in the town that he lives and has grown to love over the past two years of living here. This year Michael served as the assistant junior high baseball coach and split the year between assistant and head baseball coach for the high school team. In the science department, Michael worked with administration and the other department members to rework the science curriculum to ensure state standards are being met for every student. This year he also agreed to help some students bring back the FCA club at the high school. Outside of school, Michael loves spending time with his wife, Alyssa (the best teacher in the family), and soon-to-be four children, attending Greyhounds sporting/extracurricular events, helping pastor and serving at Rooted Community Church, and spending time with friends.
