 I’m Dist[IN]guished Service Award: Ivan Barkdoll, McClintock High School

Landings Credit Union presented four Tempe Union High School teachers with their annual “I’m [IN]vested Awards”. Ivan Barkdoll from McClintock was given the “I’m Dist[IN]guished Service Award”.

The “I’m Dist[IN]guished Service” award honors exceptional performance by an employee with 10+ years of service to the district. This employee shows pride in their work, continually goes above and beyond in their position, is a leader in their area and is dedicated to the district and community.

Ivan Barkdoll teaches Academy Pre-Calculus, AP Statistics and AP Chemistry at McClintock High School. He is well-liked by students, and many choose to have him for all three courses throughout their tenure while at McClintock and the Peggy Payne Academy.

“Ivan is one of a kind, he is an amazing math and science teacher that inspires students to not only be great math students but also to be great people,” his nomination read.

Barkdoll is known to use several creative strategies to teach, such as his annual pumpkin carving contest, turkey bowling and Math Olympics. He is constantly showing support for his students by arriving to school early and staying late to help with assignments and projects.

In addition to teaching, he serves as a sponsor for Senior Class, National Honor Society and Science Olympiad. He regularly attends varsity football games and many basketball games. He is at the fine arts events and helps out with lunchtime activities.

His support spreads to every corner of campus. He sends out thank you cards to teachers that chaperone the Homecoming Dance, and sponsors a breakfast, on behalf of Senior Class, for all staff members every spring.
