Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) recently recognized Rachel Misner as the 2018 Instructional Assistant of the Year. She is one of eight support employees recognized for outstanding achievement.
Misner is the Lab Assistant for the Catoctin High School (CHS) Science Department. She was nominated by teachers Tom Mills, April Wells, and Theresa Hutchinson. Misner’s duties include preparing lab equipment and materials for science classes, ordering supplies, and keeping the department running smoothly, but she doesn’t stop there.
Wells said, “She offers her assistance to other departments and areas in the building if she has spare time.” Hutchinson added, “She has assisted with planning and running homecoming, Science National Honor Society, and planning the school’s upcoming 50th anniversary.”
In his nomination letter, Mills said, “Rachel has had a positive transformational effect on this department. Just by loving her job, being herself, respecting others, and expecting the best from others has had a tremendous positive impact on this department and our school community.”
