February District Employee of the Month
Kurtis Moffitt, Vidor Elementary
Second-year teacher Kurtis Moffitt was recognized as the Vidor ISD Employee of the Month by the Board of Trustees and Superintendent Dr. Jay Killgo on Monday
evening at the board's regularly scheduled meeting. Moffitt, a third grade teacher at Vidor Elementary, not only teaches math, but is constantly looking for ways to make learning fun for his students while maintaining the integrity of required STAAR rigor.  He recently secured portable electronic devices from Donorchoose.org to help his students go farther and faster.  He not only seeks to help his students progress academically, but socially.  He recently started a boys club called Moffitt's Mateys, which meets on Friday.  It's comprised of third grade boys that are learning about respect, integrity, honestly, and ethics.  He got ties for each boy, and they are learning to tie them so they can wear them to school on Fridays. He is also a Pirate Pal, mentoring a fourth grade student in reading. "Kurtis is relatively new to education," says Vidor Elementary administration. "But he is a quick study in the field,  and has a passion for students who struggle with behavior issues. He provides a fire for education that reminds us all why we got in the business to start with."  Moffitt also dresses in character every chance he gets, with his favorite being Batman.

Mike Majors
Mike Majors, Vidor High School
Vidor High School's Employee of the Month is Mike Majors, who teaches Algebra II.  He was nominated by counselor Amanda Hatton and teacher Carrie Ricks.

"He will not move on to another concept until each and every student understands," she says, "and he wants the respect of the students, so he gives them respect first.  He is an all-around great guy!"

She takes pride in a job well done, and recognizes the impact her work has on the students there.  She has filled in this year when the head custodian had to be out for an extended period of time.  "Her leadership and commitment to excellence has led our custodial crew to hold the same high standards of cleanliness and efficiency that we are familiar with at Oak Forest," said McDowell.  The faculty and students at Oak Forest appreciate Ms. Paula!
