Emans, Tenzler given Star Staff Awards

PORT ORCHARD — Two South Kitsap School District employees were recognized Feb. 13 with Star Staff Awards during a Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Debi Emans, theater teacher at South Kitsap High School, and Anna Tenzler, office coordinator at Burley Glenwood Elementary, were given the Certificated Star Staff Award and Classified Star Staff Award, respectively.

Emans was nominated by colleague Mike Allen, who said: “Mrs. Emans has been a unifying force in the arts department and puts on incredible productions. She has been an inspiration and role model to thousands of students during her 36 years at SKHS.”

Tenzler was nominated by Burley Glenwood Principal Darek Grant. “Burley Glenwood is truly lucky to have Anna as part of our team. She makes all feel welcome and continually looks for ways to ensure we are an effective team and goes out of her way to ensure everyone has what they need,” Grant said.

Classified and certificated staff members from throughout the school district are nominated by their peers or supervisor, based on their work in four categories: teamwork, innovation, job performance and student connection/engagement.
