Board Recognizes December 2017 Employees of the Month

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) is one of 58 county offices located throughout the state. Approximately 650 regular and more than 950 temporary and substitute SCOE staff work year-round providing services which complement and supplement those offered by public school districts in Sacramento County.

Classified Employee of the Month 


Karista Yeagley, Office Assistant, has been nominated by Human Resources Chief Administrator Effie Crush for her contributions to the Sacramento County Office of Education. As the receptionist at the Clellan "Cy" Young Building, Ms. Yeagley is the first person people see as they enter the personnel building. She always greets guests and staff members with a warm and friendly smile, and is always eager to assist them. Ms. Yeagley is the face of Support Services and in her capacity she greets incoming guests and vendors, answers and routes phone calls, and orders office supplies. She also has worked on special projects assisting both the Payroll and Personnel Departments. Most recently, upon the retirement of the Executive Assistant in the Personnel Department, she stepped in to temporarily fill the important role of assisting the Human Resources Chief Administrator. Ms. Yeagley has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education since October 2016.


Certificated Employee of the Month 


Ashley Sabot, Teacher, Community Schools / CARE (Mitchell Middle School, Folsom Cordova USD), was nominated for certificated employee of the month by Court and Community Schools Director Chris Aland. Ms. Sabot teaches a group of 22 students who struggle with finding success at school. She teaches 8th grade English, social studies, strategic English intervention and a study skills class. Ms. Sabot also runs a lunch time Pride over Prejudice Club for all students at Mitchell. Her commitment to creating a unique, positive relationship with each of her students is exemplary. Ms. Sabot is working with her current group of students for the second consecutive year. When students respond to her they can often be heard making the mistake of calling her "Mom" instead of Ms. Sabot, which is a testament to the connection she makes with her students. She maintains a high level of rigor in her classroom, as well as high expectations for every student. Ms. Sabot has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education since July 2016.
