Kendra (Naef) Scherg brings expert pedagogy to her family and consumer sciences classes at Kimberly High School in Kimberly. She restructured the program so that it is standards-based and devised a "rough rubric" to assess students at the beginning and end of the year, so they can see how much they've learned. She also uses this tool to assess her own effectiveness as an educator. Among the innovations Ms. (Naef) Scherg has brought to Kimberly High is a highly popular program she created and developed called PARTNERS (Peers Acceptance Respect Trust Nurturing Esteem Relationships Social Skills), which teams regular education students with cognitively disabled students "to develop positive peer relationships and gain knowledge and skill through activities focused on community and daily living." One component of PARTNERS is the school's Sundae Shoppe, a business fully operated by students during extended learning periods, special events and activities. In 2007, (Naef) Scherg was named the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences National Teacher of the Year.
