The Board of Directors recognized teacher Ernie Brockman for teaching students in Everett Public Schools for over 50 years.

“The first time I met Herr Brockman, he immediately introduced himself, shook my hand and began telling – and listening to – stories,” Assistant Superintendent Dr. Sally Lancaster shared during the recognition at a September board meeting.

“Ernie is a master of relationships and understands that the art of connecting with people begins with knowing a bit about who they are,” Lancaster added.

Herr Brockman, as he is known to students, was a German teacher at Evergreen Middle School for one year before teaching at Everett High School for the following 10 years. He supervised the World Language Program before continuing his teaching at Cascade High School until 1993. Since that time, Brockman has served as a substitute. Most recently, he has worked one-on-one with a special needs student in our district.

“Generations of students in the district have benefitted from Herr Brockman’s unrelenting optimism, his kindness and his willingness to take time to learn about the student, share a story and celebrate their successes,” shared Lancaster. “We are a better organization for him being in it.”
