Read about our latest Everyday Hero and recognize one of your colleagues

Everyday Heroes Logo with the words: Celebrating OSD Employees

Look around you. Everyday Heroes are working in our schools daily. They are food service workers, bus drivers, teachers, office staff, maintenance workers, custodial staff and more. Remember to give a shout out to one of your colleagues for a job well done at your school or support building and watch for it to appear in an upcoming Everyday Heroes blog post.

Here is this week’s honoree:

Everyday Hero
Kristin Costello, Leadership and English Teacher, Olympia High School
“I’ve had the unique opportunity and pleasure to team teach Leadership with Kristin this school year. I say team teach, but really it is more me standing back in awe watching Kristin inspire our OHS leadership kids. She is involved in almost every aspect of our student life here and she takes great pride in her work. Our school thrives because Kristin makes things happen around here. I’m very happy to call her my colleague and friend. Thank you Kristin for being such a force for a positive and fun culture here at Olympia High School.”
