Superintendent’s Message for Paraprofessional Appreciation Day
Today, we celebrate all our Paraprofessionals for National #ParaprofessionalDay 2019. Paraeducators assist teachers and other school personnel in the delivery of quality education and support services for students.
Students who need support for learning can improve academic performance with the support of a paraeducator and the assistance provided by paraeducators greatly benefits teachers, enabling them to provide more individualized instruction with students. Paraeducators are also a tremendous asset for encouraging connections among students, families and schools.
Their work is invaluable. The dedication and devotion they share with the children deserves special recognition. We thank them for their commitment, generosity, boundless energy, and the passion they have for their work.
Make sure you thank your Paraprofessional today.
Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez, Superintendent
