As part of Coordinators Appreciation Week (#CoordinatorsRock), we are highlighting our amazing Resource Coordinators who serve at four area middle schools: Asheville, Enka, Erwin and Owen. It is the job of each Resource Coordinator to foster and organize strong, impactful partnerships and ensure we are responding to the unique needs of their school and community.
Check out our other blog posts throughout this week to learn more about all of our Resource Coordinators.
Linnea is the Resource Coordinator at Erwin Middle School. This is her second year at Erwin, and we asked some of her colleagues to share with us what they appreciate about Linnea.
"Our resource coordinator is the best! I don't know how Erwin has survived for so long without her. She is an integral part of our school and makes good things happen for not only our staff but also our students, our families, and our community. She has done a million things in such a short amount of time. Our school is a much better place because of our resource coordinator. Our school climate has improved, communication is better, community partners are getting involved, and great things are happening because of her energy and her drive to create a true community school. We are so thankful for her and everything she does!" Jenay Wilson, Erwin Middle School Counselor
"I love my coordinator because Linnea is willing to collaborate and problem solve with all stakeholders in order to help our students feel welcomed and included and be successful!" Courtney Dietiker, Erwin Middle School Assistant Principal
"Linnea does an outstanding job of working with all people everyday in making them feel welcome, included and appreciated. She has helped bring Erwin Middle staff, students and the community to a new level. We would not be where we are without her dedication, compassion and great example!" Chris Thompson, Erwin Middle School Principal
"If there were a Nobel Prize for Best Resource Coordinator, Linnea would receive it! I thank her for being such an amazing person and a true inspiration!" LeeAnne Tucker, Land of Sky Regional Council
"I love my coordinator because she is passionate, resourceful, and dedicated. I knew I could trust her the very first time I met her." Heath Capps, Erwin Middle School Counselor
