Patty Beckle

Naples Elementary School is excited to announce Patty Beckle as the Boundary County School District 101's May Certified Employee of the Month.

Mrs. Beckle has been a special education instructor at Naples Elementary for the past three years, helping each and every student who comes through her doors be successful.

According to school administrators, Patty has always put in extra hours and worked to make sure that each of her students is getting the individualized support they need.

"With the pandemic happening at the end of our school year, it was exciting to watch Mrs. Beckle go above and beyond," they wrote. "Patty truly stepped up to the plate during the past few months. Patty has put in countless hours and has worked to reach out to students and families, making sure they feel supported during distance learning."

Patty hit the ground running and worked to accommodate students from day one of the distance learning situation. The changes continued to come, and each time Patty answered the call by doing even more than expected of her.

Patty would work to make sure students received supplies that they needed as well as hand delivering items when they could not be picked up.

"Patty is the kind of person that makes any place better by working there," school officials wrote. "She has been an integral part of the Naples team and always strives to do her part to create the best team possible. Patty Beckle is most deserving of this, and we at Naples are grateful that she has put in so much time and effort these past three years. Thank you Patty, you are an incredible Wolverine!"
