Manheim Township School District’s
Employee of the Month December 2016
Elaine Omundsen is December’s Manheim Township School District’s Employee of the Month. Elaine is a very worthy of this title and is a treasure at Nitrauer.
Elaine is the site leader of Nitrauer’s kitchen staff and has been a part of the MTSD’s Food Service Team since September 2012. Although this is her first year in the leadership position, Elaine has made her positive, reliable, and friendly presence known for some time.
When staff members were asked to offer thoughts about Elaine, here were some of their contributions:
“Elaine is so deserving of this award! She is always smiling, even when working overtime (or outside the kitchen) …like last year during the set up for Jeanne Ryan’s retirement party, and when filling in for Matt/Craig, our custodians, after her shift was over. Elaine is sweet with an easygoing personality. The atmosphere in the kitchen is great under Elaine’s direction…mutual respect & commitment to the kiddos and Nitrauer staff.”
“Elaine is always so full of energy and is so helpful with the kids, and always has a smile on her face.”
“She is always so patient, polite and friendly with the students. Her positive attitude makes the entire fast-paced lunch line run so smoothly.”
“Woo Hoo!! So glad to hear that she is the one! She puts everything into her job. She loves Nitrauer and all of the kids! She always has a smile.”
“Elaine has such a wonderful attitude that accompanies the big smile she wears daily. She is someone who always goes the extra mile without even thinking twice. While she is extremely busy at Nitrauer, she always takes time to do kind things for others. She truly cares about all of the students and staff here at Nitrauer and it shows in her work and positive attitude every day. Elaine has a great sense of humor while still knowing how to be extremely professional. We are very fortunate to have Elaine as part of the Nitrauer family!”
Elaine, thank you for your attitude, dedication, and positive, child-centered presence at Nitrauer. You are very deserving of this award! Congratulations on being the MTSD December Employee of the Month!
