HALIS KABLAN NAMED CHARTER SCHOOL EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
Salt Lake City—Beehive Science and Technology Academy’s Dean of Academics/Assessment Director Halis Kablan has been named the Charter School Employee of the Month for April 2019 by the Utah State Charter School Board.
Kablan was presented with a certificate and a $25 Amazon gift card at the Charter Directors meeting in April at the Utah State Board of Education offices.
In his nomination of Kablan for this recognition, Beehive Principal Hanifi Oguz wrote, “Mr. Kablan works with many teachers, students and parents on a wide variety of issues. During the past eight years, I have not heard a single negative comment about him from anyone. He is very patient, accommodating, caring and helpful. People love him. We have many alumni students who graduated years ago who still come back to our school to visit him. You can go to him for help, and he will stop what he is doing to help you right away. The word, ‘no,’ is not in his dictionary. He may be busy or occupied, but if you ask him to do something or help, he will attend to you right away.”
Kablan has been with Beehive Science and Technology Academy since 2007. He was initially hired as a biology/science teacher. Since joining Beehive, he has also been the robotics coach, home visit coordinator, science department chair, assessment director, program coordinator, college mentorship and leadership director, STEM coordinator. He has been working on his doctorate in education at the University of Utah since August 2018.
