Being selected Educational Support Person of the Year is a big deal to me, because the title encompasses
the student, the parent, the school, and the community. DeKalb County School District doesn't
always get the greatest PR. DeKalb Early College Academy is a premiere school because of the dedication of the staff and faculty.
My educational philosophy is to always to be an advocate for the students, especially those struggling with a low GPA. As a Student Support Specialist, I wear many hats. If I can promote why certain strategies work
for ALL students and include the parents in these strategies then I will have accomplished my goal.
