Thank Educational Support Personnel

November 9, 2018

Editor: Nov. 14 is National Education Support Professionals Day. It honors and recognizes the contributions education support professional make to public education. It is a time to strengthen support and show respect for education support professionals, who are equal and essential partners in public education. The National Education Support Personnel Day was established in 1987, at the NEA Representative Assembly called for the creation of a special way to honor the contributions of public school support staff. We are the people who drive your children to school. Para educators assist the students in learning. Nursing health and therapy support. Education support professionals help them cross the street, provide them a nutritious meal, answer the telephones and emails, and keep school buildings maintained and the grounds clean, safe, and secure. Plus don’t forget, skill trades and technical services. We are parents, grandparents, neighbors and community volunteers who want our students to achieve success throughout their lives. Please keep in mind on Nov. 14, thank your educational support professionals and all employees working in our public schools to make them the best in the nation. I know firsthand that we are always very proud to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many young people. Adam Lanza LAKE ARIEL
