PEWAUKEE, WI -- Local district School Psychologist, Britta DeJager, has been named a ‘2019 eduCLIMBER Power User’ for her notable contributions at Spooner Area School District. The award was bestowed by leading K-12 student achievement solution Illuminate Education. The program honors outstanding educators and administrators who use Illuminate eduCLIMBER, a cloud-hosted data platform, to increase the power of teaching and the delight of learning.

DeJager is starting her fourth year at Spooner Area School District and has used eduCLIMBER throughout all four. In addition to her role of School Psychologist, DeJager is also an External PBIS Coach and Data Analyst for the district. She also serves on the district-level MLSS Action Team.

All five 2019 Power Users were awarded at the 2019 eduCLIMBER National User Conference in Pewaukee. This event brings together over 300 educators for two days of professional learning, training sessions, and networking. Awardees were selected based on their impactful role in using eduCLIMBER to make a difference for their students, schools, and district.

“The eduCLIMBER Power User award program gives us the opportunity to recognize amazing educators who are accelerating the learning process for all students,” said Amy Jackson, Vice President of Learning and Development at Illuminate Education. “While the awardees were selected based on a variety of criteria, they all have something in common: a passion to help students and support their fellow colleagues. I am honored to award Britta DeJager for her incredible work at Spooner Area School District ”

DeJager is most proud of the decisions her district has been able to make using eduCLIMBER. eduCLIMBER enables DeJager and her colleagues to identify strengths and needs in the district, to problem-solve more efficiently as a team, to collaborate as professionals, and overall, to do their jobs more efficiently. All of this leaves more time to help students directly.
