Steve Patterson was nominated for Baymonte’s Above and Beyond Award! This award recognizes teachers and staff who consistently go above and beyond their normal job expectations to ensure students are well cared for and receive a high-quality education. We were so eager to give him this award due to all of his hard work and amazing contributions to the school. Here are some of the great things said about Mr. Patterson:
“Mr. Patterson has shown true leadership this year. Always forward thinking, he has kept Baymonte running and all our kids in school through the many obstacles encountered this year. He has been quick to adapt to the ever-changing regulations and has done it all with the good humor and graciousness for which he has always been known.”
“The fact that Mr. Patterson is outside in the freezing cold along with the rest of the staff at drop-off speaks volumes.”
“Mr. Patterson is truly admired for his amazing leadership especially during this extraordinary time which we are all experiencing with the pandemic. Seeing him take such great precautions and his open communication with us as staff here at Baymonte has put us at ease. The way Mr. Patterson has emphasized the critical importance of safety to us as teachers allows us to pass on this same information to our students. Our school has been able to safely open the start of this school year to students because of the incredible leadership Mr. Patterson has provided for our staff, students and families. I’m grateful and thankful to be under his leadership and to work beside someone who cares so much.”
“Steve is the most caring boss I’ve ever had! He has a heart of compassion for the students of this school and always has his teachers’ backs. It is a blessing to be under his leadership!”
“Steve is the ultimate boss. He trusts us and lets us make our own decisions, but he is ready to give advice and a helping hand when we want it. He comes from a background of a parent, a teacher, and an administrator so he understands many points of view. He has created the perfect balance of being a supervisor to us as teachers and also letting us have our own personalities. I love the way he encourages me and lets me grow as a person. He is the best boss I have ever had!”
Congratulations Mr. Patterson! We love and appreciate you!
