June 2023 Employee of the Month

Diane Krull
Behavior Support Paraprofessional
Birchview Elementary 

Birchview Elementary School is proud to nominate Diane Krull, Behavior Support Paraprofessional, as Employee of the Month. Diane truly embodies what it means to be a Birchview Bobcat in every way and our school is a better community because of educators like her. Mrs. Krull shows her utmost care and love for our school every day and she is known for being a ‘go to’ person around our building to support our students.

When you visit Birchview, you will quickly recognize Mrs. Krull. At the beginning of each day, she greets students, families and staff as they enter the building. You can hear her genuine excitement as she sees everyone… It is a great way to start the day. She makes every person at our school feel important and like they matter. The little things that she does leave a huge impact on all of us, especially our students. Throughout the day, you will find her in the hallways, in the lunchroom, in classrooms, or outside on the playground. She’s everywhere with one goal in mind: to help our students be successful. At the end of the day, she is outside with our students, connecting and making sure everyone gets where they need to be safely. Her positive outlook and ‘will do’ attitude have made a huge impact on students at Birchview. She is a gift to our school. 

As we know, a school community is strong when positive relationships are present and we are all working collectively together as a team. Diane is a big part of our school’s culture and climate and is constantly behind the scenes doing whatever it takes to help around school. From helping us organize the system for lunch cards in the lunchroom, to staff potlucks (a staple at Birchview), to helping in the office, when something needs to get done, she is behind the scenes working with a smile. 

To help illustrate just how special Diane Krull is, we are sharing comments from a student and one of Diane’s colleagues:

“Mrs. Krull is kind and funny. She makes me feel safe at school. I like being with her because she is the best. Thank you, Mrs. Krull.” ... Birchview student

"Students are at the heart of everything she does. If she can find a way to make one student’s day a little brighter, she is going to make it happen. Both our students and staff are so fortunate to have her at Birchview.” ... Birchview teacher 

Birchview Elementary School is thrilled to recognize Diane Krull as the district’s June Employee of the Month. She is very deserving of this recognition because of her relentless work to support our students, staff and overall school community.
