March 2019

Each month, the Board and Superintendent recognize an employee for his or her outstanding service. This month, we honor Tricia Giovanazzi, Administrative Assistant II for the Teacher and Administrator Development Program in the Human Resources Department.

Tricia has worked in various roles during her 21 years at the San Mateo County Office of Education. She currently supports the Teacher and Administrator Development Program in managing its programs. Tricia has gathered a vast amount of institutional and program knowledge over the years, and is a valuable resource to many staff members. She is an exceptionally reliable team member who demonstrates her dedication to excellence every day.

This year, Tricia supported the team through a series of staffing changes due to promotions and retirements. She warmly welcomed each new team member, helped with their onboarding, and shared her knowledge and support. Tricia’s deep knowledge of SMCOE procedures and practices was invaluable during the transition and remains key to the smooth operation and success of the Teacher and Administrator Development Program.

We are grateful to Tricia for the quality of her work, her commitment to SMCOE and its mission, and her continuing efforts to support others. We are proud of our SMCOE staff and are pleased to recognize Tricia Giovanazzi as our Employee of the Month for March 2019.
