National Educational Support Professionals Day
It’s National Educational Support Professionals Day! We take our hats off to the many folks in our school communities who support teaching and learning on a daily basis. Gwinnett County Public Schools has two kinds of employees—those who teach and those who support those who teach. And those who teach couldn’t do the great job they do in the classroom without the hard work of a lot of caring and committed support staff— paraprofessionals and technical support personnel, school nutrition workers and transportation staff, custodians and maintenance workers, nurses and social workers, safety and security staff and clerical support at schools and central office.
GCPS’ support staff members are essential members of the school success team, and work together with teachers and administrators to ensure the basic right of every student to attend a great public school. They perform a variety of jobs that promote quality education, foster positive learning environments, offer nutritious meals to ensure students are ready to learn, provide reliable transportation, and maintain safe and clean schools for all students.
Education support professionals are often the first people our schoolchildren encounter on a daily basis… the unsung heroes of public education. Please take a moment to say “thank you’ for the important work they do to support your student’s success.
