Seppi Gorecki and David Tracewell

Congratulations to the many recognized by their schools and by the district at our annual employee awards celebration! 

And now, introducing our 2019 employees of the year ...   

Classified Employee of the Year: Seppi Gorecki

Seppi is a maintenance technician for our district. He’s been with CK Schools for three years and came to us with a lengthy career in construction and construction management. With Seppi, it’s not just what he does for us—it’s more how he does it. Seppi easily brightens everyone’s day with his smile and his always-kind demeanor.

Seppi is also incredibly organized, detail-oriented, hardworking, and extremely competent. He listens for a way to say “yes.” In many ways, this award is about quality employees delivering quality results. Interaction, task completion done with a smile, a laugh and a heart as big as they come. That’s what you’ll find in Seppi!

Teacher of the Year: David Tracewell

David Tracewell is a high school English and media communications teacher at Klahowya Secondary School.  His classroom is nurturing, inviting and fun. Students love it there. David’s genuine kindness, humility and desire to make a difference in the lives of students is clear from the moment you meet him—and his is most definitely making a difference.

David is also committed to his colleagues. If you approach him with an idea, he is always willing to give it a try, while demonstrating creativity and leadership. David keeps his work behind the scenes, ensuring his students and their work take the spotlight. We’re pleased to shine the spotlight on him for a change!
