MANAGER OF BUSINESS EDUCATION
The Division of Career and Technology Education encompasses a variety of instructional programs by the offices of Business and Computer Science, Family and Consumer Sciences and Technology Education. Much work is done behind the scenes to ensure that all high school students are prepared for post-secondary education and the workforce. And working in support of this goal is an employee who is a strong advocate for the business and internship programs that make the program the success it is. Tammy Diedrich, Manager of Business Education and Internships, builds relationships. She is always looking for new business partnerships and consistently goes above and beyond what it takes to add new programs and expand on current internship programs.
Ms. Diedrich is a very positive influence with the colleagues on her team and out in the community. When Tammy talks, she really communicates, leaving the listener with no doubt that she believes in the programs that she leads. Tammy stays on the cutting edge. She is always up to date with the latest trends and techniques, encouraging her colleagues to do the same. She is always looking for innovative ways to improve productivity.
Tammy contributes a very positive influence in her department. She has a fantastic way of putting a positive spin on most situations. She consistently meets with business partners to build the internship program. And while it is a requirement for some AACPS students (such as STEM participants) to engage in an internship, she is able to express how critical and important an internship is for some AACPS students.
Ms. Diedrich displays a high degree of willingness to assist other staff members and students. She always has time for team members and always comes up with a solution to any problem within minutes. She continually builds up her team with motivation and positive input.
Tammy Diedrich – you hold a vital position in our school system. Without your
dedication and hard work the CTE program would not be as it is today. You facilitate the acquisition of internships for students so that they may continue to thrive in their educational journey and be the best students they can be.
So on behalf of the Board of Education, the students, teachers and staff of Anne Arundel County Public Schools, as well as all of the school system’s business partners, we congratulate you for being recognized Employee of the Month for June 2015. Thank you!
