The Program, established in 1988, recognizes and honors exemplary service provided by non-management employees. Each Employee of the Month is recognized for a commitment to excellence that ensures the continued promotion of quality services while supporting the mission of the County Office of Education.
Each month, the Board and Superintendent recognize an employee for outstanding service. For the month of June, the employee of the month is Mary Mani, Paraeducator in the Student Services Division.
Mary is dedicated to helping students in our Court Schools achieve their educational goals and gain life skills to transition back to society. She is very supportive, compassionate, and patient with the students with whom she works.
Mary is an integral part of the new CARE class at Hillcrest School, which was created to teach students who, for various reasons, could not attend class with the rest of the students. She has helped create a quiet and calm atmosphere and learning environment, manages files and supplies for students, and even gives out a “Student of the Week” award to motivate those in the CARE class. Because of her authority and personality, students respect and enjoy working with her on their assignments.
Mary is understanding, kind, and courteous. She communicates effectively with both students and staff and creates a safe and positive environment for students.
We are proud of our SMCOE staff and are pleased to recognize Mary Mani for her outstanding work. Congratulations to Mary for being named Employee of the Month for June 2018.
