Northfield Elementary

January GPS Staff Member of the Month


 Carol Propp, third grade teacher at Northfield Elementary, was selected as the January GPS Staff Member of the Month, sponsored by Fresh Foods of Gering. In her nomination, colleagues stated that Carol builds tremendous relationships with her students and their families. One of her former students shared a story about her making him a pie for Thanksgiving. Carol would ask each of her students what their favorite pie was, and the week of Thanksgiving, she would hand deliver them to her students. Another example of her dedication is when she accompanied a grandma, who was raising her grandchild, to parent teacher conferences. The grandma did not understand the educational lingo very well, so Carol offered to attend conferences with this grandma so she could better explain the services being provided to her grandchild. The nomination goes on to say that Ms. Propp is an inspiration to so many. She inspires her students and families and is truly an amazing person who makes the world a better place. Carol has been a teacher with Gering Public Schools since 2002.
