Tiger Spotlight: Week 11

Tiger Spotlight shines bright over paraprofessional staff Marta Salas, Maria Ochoa, and Diana Cedillo for the extraordinary job they done as educators! Ms. Salas, Reading Intervention Aide, has been providing Spanish Language Arts instruction to our 4th grade students, getting them ready for STAAR! Ms. Ochoa, also Reading Intervention Aide, has even created her own classroom to assist students who were struggling with reading. Teachers have reported that students who were once unable to read, are now reading and have progressed significantly thanks to the help of Ms. Ochoa! Ms. Diana Cedillo took over the PK3 classroom in the absence of the classroom teacher, taking on the role of a teacher until she returned. This group of paraprofessionals went beyond the role of a teacher assistant, they put their right foot forward and are seen as the tremendous educators that they really are. Thank you Ms. Salas, Ms. Ochoa, and Ms. Cedilllo for being there for our kids when they needed you the most!
