Natalya Edwards Selected As SCOE Classified Employee of the Year

Two Staff Members to Represent SCOE in County Competition

On February 28, Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David W. Gordon announced that Natalya Edwards has been selected as the 2017 Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Classified Employee of the Year. Edwards is a transition specialist for SCOE’s Adult Re-Entry Programs. Edwards will be honored at a County Board of Education meeting this spring.

The annual SCOE Classified Employees of the Year competition helps pay tribute to the efforts of SCOE’s outstanding classified employees. SCOE staff from some/all of six categories are nominated to compete. Following paper screening and formal interviews, those with high enough scores move on to the county competition. One of the employees is also named the SCOE Classified Employee of the Year.

Marty Florey, Administrative Assistant for SCOE’s Juvenile Court Schools and Community Schools, will also compete at the county level. Florey will represent SCOE in the “Office and Technical” category and Edwards will compete in the “​Paraprofessional Educator/Instructional Assistance​” category, both hoping to continue on to the California Department of Education (CDE) Classified School Employees of the Year Competition later this year. CDE recognizes exemplary classified employees statewide who best represent California and symbolize contributions and commitment to education.

Classified employees are vital support staff who play a key role in making schools run smoothly and work to promote student achievement, safety, and health. The SCOE employees nominated for this prestigious honor are being recognized for their ongoing and exemplary performance of responsibilities contributing significantly to the success of SCOE programs, services, and special projects.
