Classified Employee of the Month Team
Betsy Bourne (Technology Support/Trainer), Bill Mullen (Technology Support/Trainer), Scott Pantalone (Technology Support/Trainer), Robin Satow (Technology Support/Trainer), Tyler Shea (A/V Support Specialist), and Fernando Soares (Technology Support/Trainer) were nominated as a team by Director Joey Alexander and Executive Director Jerry Jones with the full support of the Superintendent’s Cabinet for their exceptional work on the DPMEC Reconfiguration Project. The Computer, Network and Telecommunication Support (CNTS) team’s efforts were vital in minimizing the amount of downtime experienced by employees that were a part of the DPMEC reconfiguration.
Certificated Employee of the Month
Ted Smith, Special Education / ED Teacher, was nominated by Principal Siobhan Dill for his contributions to the overall success of the Intensive Intervention Program serving students with emotional disabilities at Galt High School (GHS). Mr. Smith's program offers daily social-emotional supports to students with the option to access the comprehensive GHS campus for general education courses. He has a gift of supporting students to feel safe on campus. A recently-enrolled student shared his thoughts in August: "For the first time since age five, I have looked forward to the school year starting. I couldn't have designed a more perfect program and chosen a more perfect staff to meet my needs." Mr. Smith has been employed by the Sacramento County Office of Education since October 2000.
