Tobey Schlofeldt

Havre Public School's Classified employee of the Year

2016

Havre Public Schools’ 2016 Classified Employee of the Year is Tobey Schlofeldt. Tobey represents the non-teaching employees of the district involving clerical, maintenance, custodial, technology, school food service, para professional, nurse, and transportation workers. Tobey’s employment area is as a paraprofessional at Highland Park. Classified Employee of the Year 2015, Melony Steckel, proudly announced Mrs. Schlofeldt as the 2016 Classified Employee of the Year at Havre Public Schools’ Pride Celebration in April. Additional nominees considered for the 2016 award were Christine Huston (Clerical at Sunnyside), Darla Welch (Paraprofessional at Sunnysidel) and Mardele Toth (Paraprofessional at Havre High School). Melony introduced Tobey with these kind words: “She was nominated for her hard work, reliability, and caring nature. She is able to tackle any tasks that come her way throughout the day; all while keeping her sense of humor and witty personality. Her co-workers are confident that when she is there, the children, parents and staff will be well taken care of. “ Tobey, AKA, Miss Tobey, has been a para for the district for 12 years. Upon graduation from Havre High School, she opened a day care because of her love of children. As her own children got older, they wanted their home to be all their own again so Tobey went to work as a para. While not working, Tobey enjoys spending time with her children: Tyson, age 23, Cole a senior at Havre High and Jaycee a freshman at Havre High. She also enjoys attending Blue Pony sporting events and playing games with family and friends. As she progresses through her day, you may find Tobey assisting students with projects or tasks in the classroom or you may find her in the office answering phones or placing band aids in exactly the correct spot. She states, “My job is rewarding, fun, and at times challenging. There is not one day that is exactly like the other.” She enjoys the challenge of finding a way to enhance each child’s education, since not every child learns the same way. When asked what her favorite memory is: “There are too many memories to pick from. I really enjoy all the kids and seeing them as they grow up. I love it when a student I had at Highland Park who is in High School now remembers me as Miss Tobey." The best part of each day is finding a way to improve each child’s day while the most difficult part of her job is, “not taking all these adorable kids home with me.” One of those adorable children had this to say about Miss Tobey, “When I ran into the post, Miss Tobey asked if I was okay. That’s what she does. She makes sure everybody is okay.”

Thanks for your continued dedication to Havre Public Schools Miss Tobey!
