•Congratulations to Patty Michiels! From Judy Barcelon, "Patty Michiels was honored as the Piner High Teacher of the Year nominee for the California League of High Schools. Patty has dedicated 31 years of her life to sharing her passion for Spanish culture and language to our students be it Spanish for Spanish speakers or AP Spanish. She excels at any level. Principal Tim Zaldunardo introduced Patty acknowledging her dedication to the profession and how she serves as a cornerstone to the Piner High family. He captured perfectly her zest for classroom engagement, that when one opens the door to her classroom you can see her radiance that illuminate the minds of her students as well as hear their exuberance in the delightful singing that emanates. Ms. Michaels boldy gave her acceptance speech in Spanish at first. Demonstrating her passion for the subject and as her face lit up with such exuberance I found myself as enchanted as her students must feel. Besides all that fanfare, Patty is an icon and role model to the teachers at Piner. She has created such opportunities as cross cultural teaching with her students and elementary schools for over 15 years. She has kept up on technology, curriculum integration and being willing to try and learn new strategies. A life long learner, teacher advocate and perpetual Prospector, Patty well deserves this recognition and shall continue to reign at Piner High."

•STEM Update: Nicole Gregorio was selected from a competitive field of students from around the county for the Summer High School Internship Program (SHIP) at Sonoma State this past summer. Here is what she has to say about it, "Last summer I was lucky to be picked as one of SSU's high school interns. I was accepted to a biochemistry project where I was paired with another student and an SSU professor to conduct research. Our project involved research on a protein called BAFF-R, which is of high interest in targeted therapies for lymphoma. In lab we used E. coli to produce this protein and analyzed samples for their content of BAFF-R. Not only was I able to learn skills like pouring and running SDS-PAGE, which is used to separate proteins by size, but I also learned how to troubleshoot failed experiments, which are frequent in research. Though research can be frustrating because results are often hard to come by, it is a very rewarding experience which has allowed me to grow as a student and a person. This internship prepared me for a career in science research, which I could not have received in a high school class alone." Although Nicole has already obtained her STEM certificate level 3 award for her rocket design last year... she plans to continue her commitment to the certificate by obtaining all levels possible for the STEM prospect award..
