Teacher Spotlight

Here you will find examples of the outstanding teachers we have here at Joseph Charter School.  There are lots of ways that our teachers shine, and this is a place where we can showcase their efforts!

Eveline Rodriguez
Mrs. Eveline Rodriguez has taken over for Ms. Olivia Hinojos, who will be on maternity leave for the 3rd quarter of the 2013 school year. She will be teaching all of the Spanish and Art courses, as well as Yearbook while she is here with us. Welcome Eveline! 

Mrs. Marla Dotson
Mrs. Dotson has been at the helm of the Family and Consumer Sciences courses at Joseph since 1983. While she is one of the teachers with the most years of experience under her belt, she is also one of the most energetic! Mrs. Dotson has recently been working very hard to ensure that the Oregon Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) organization is able to continue despite having its state funding cut. Without her leadership and guidance, the Oregon FCCLA organization may not have been able to continue. She has been instrumental to the organization's success, and Joseph always boasts one of the largest FCCLA chapters in the state of Oregon. In the past few years, Mrs. Dotson has also mentored several state officers. For the last three years, the State FCCLA President has come from the Joseph chapter! Without Mrs. Dotson, Oregon FCCLA and our own chapter would undoubtedly not function with such ease and precision. Thank you Mrs. Dotson for all you do!

Mrs. Marylou Guentert
Mrs. Guentert was recently selected as the Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce Education Leader of the Year.  This is quite an accomplishment, and we are very proud to have Mrs. Guentert on our staff! She has been an English teacher at Joseph for many years, and has been such a wonderful asset. The students and staff enjoy her wacky and witty sense of humor, and of course her creativity. She is an organized, efficient, and inventive teacher that always strives to learn new things and keep her classes interesting. Even though she is on the verge of retirement, she continues to learn and adjust to current trends. She truly is an inspiration to our staff, students, and community!
