Kudos

Transportation Services Team

I have to mention how impressed I am with the entire Transportation team and how everything has been handled this school year. We have all 5 of our kids in Pasco County schools and they all take the bus to and from their schools.

From getting their bus schedules, to the buses being on time for pickups and drops offs, to receiving updates via phone if a bus was running late,  the process has been a smooth one – it really has.

The above isn’t coming from me to you as a friend or Pasco County employee but as a parent.  I’ve been impressed with the efficiency and success of your process so far and wanted to pass it along.

Kim Glogowski, EBARM

I just want to take a moment to say a huge thank you to Kim Glogowski and the entire leaves department.  Anytime I have a question or don't understand something she is always there ready to help and explain things clearly.  She is so knowledgeable about the leaves process and willing to go the extra mile.  The whole department goes above and beyond for our employees and they make working with them stress-free, which in turn makes that part of my job stress-free.  Thank you ladies, you rock!  

Thank you,

Dena M. LaManna


OTIS Team

I wanted to thank Natalie Wanamaker, Barrett Karish, and all the folks who have worked tirelessly making sure digital curriculum resources are ready and available for teachers and students this week.  They respond quickly and professionally to the myriad questions they receive and we’re lucky to have them supporting Pasco County Schools!

Thanks,

Rachel Hatten


Dianna Theede, Transportation Services

Hey Tad,

I just wanted to mention that Dianna Theede assisted me with something and I really appreciated her quick responses and help. I wanted to definitely pass it along.

You have a great team overall and each of your managers and other team members always helps and works well with us.

Sarah Beury, Payroll

I just wanted to say thank you for ALWAYS taking your time and going out your way to help me with all our crazy payroll questions.  You are a true definition of a Rock Star!

Cheryl Ganci, HREQ

Dear Cheryl,

I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I appreciate the time that you took to speak with me during the substitute teacher interview process.  This is particularly impressive given the timing, which was the first day of the school year for teachers.  I know that you are so incredibly busy yet you took time to explain all of the procedures clearly and went above and beyond the expectation by recommending me to Wiregrass High School for a long term substitute position and following up with me to explain that process.

At a time when many people are going through the motions at best in their jobs, you are a shining example of excellence in your field.  As I'm sure you understand, this transition has been quite stressful for me and my family.  Your calm willingness to extend assistance has truly touched my heart.  Thank you for you time and consideration.  

Sincerely,

Maria Turner


Patty Nguyen, EBARM

Simply put, our Blue Cross Representative Patty Nguyen is a wonderful human being. Ms. Nguyen patiently explained my benefits along with required co-pays. She informed me of a refund I was entitled to and she went out of her way to ensure I was seen by a surgeon as soon as possible. Ms. Nguyen also called this particular surgeon’s office and educated the office of the in network policies of Blue Cross / Blue Shield. Ms. Nguyen is an advocate for Pasco County employees and a true asset to her organization. Thank You Ms. Nguyen!

Kaley McDowell, Recruiter

Thank you so much! I believe I completed all the necessary parts. Please let me know if there is something else I need to do. Thank you!

I really appreciate how attentive,  knowledgeable and helpful Kaley was in the virtual job fair. I spoke with 2 other participating employer groups and she was by far the kindest and most efficient!

William Ray, Distribution Materials Handler

Please Convey to William's (our transport driver today) supervisor how hard this man worked today through the rain. We had to unload a storage unit FULL of school supplies onto a pallet, he wrapped each pallet and then loaded onto truck and then.... played a great game of Tetris trying to top off the dead space of those pallets with additional boxes to make sure we could get all of the supplies in and avoid a second trip. He was genuinely a very nice man and a joy to work with. Want to make sure his boss becomes aware....

Nicole Westmoreland, Financial Services

I just wanted the Superintendent to know what an excellent employee Nicole Westmoreland is.  She works in the payroll dept. Nicole went outside her job description to help me answer a retirement question that no one else had been able to answer.  She took time to call me to better understand my question and the underlying problem, and then put in extra effort by reaching out to a FRS contact in Tallahassee who was able to answer my question and resolve the problem.  She did all this in a very kind and empathetic way.  

I wanted to return the favor by taking time to let the superintendent know how much I appreciate her service and value to Pasco County Schools.

Thank you,

Allison Bicknell
