Approximately 650 regular and more than 950 temporary and substitute SCOE staff work year-round providing services that complement and supplement those offered by public school districts in Sacramento County. The Sacramento County Board of Education celebrates the accomplishments and exemplary service of SCOE employees through the Employees of the Month Program.
Classified Employee of the Month
Stewart Parker, Program Analyst with the Career Pipeline office, was nominated by Director of Strategic Initiatives and Career Pipeline Development Shanine Coats. Stewart is organized, dependable, and skillful at navigating systems. This past June 2023 was the inaugural launch of the Career Paths to Success 40-hour Training. Stewart worked tirelessly to ensure the training, which took place simultaneously at multiple sites throughout the county, was successful.
Down one team member, Stewart took on additional duties related to program coordination, including ensuring students received stipends, snacks, and certificates—and that the program met SCOE’s expectations. Stewart also analyzed the feedback from the students, wherein 100% of students said they would recommend the program to a friend. This would not have been possible without Stewart’s dedication and commitment to the team. Stewart Parker has been a SCOE employee since March 2022.
Certificated Employee of the Month
Aimee Marriott, Teacher with the Foundations Academy, was nominated by Area Principal, Jillian Friend. Aimee has been a long-time para educator with the Foundations Academy Programs demonstrating exemplary skills working with students in a support role. Per Area Principal Friend, “It is no surprise that when Aimee transitioned to the role of special education teacher last year with the Foundations Academy working at George Washington Carver Arts & Science Academy, that she continued to demonstrate these skills now as the leader in the classroom.
Aimee makes learning fun for both students and staff. Walking into her classroom, you see smiles on faces, hear laughter, and observe students learning with the support of their dedicated staff. Aimee is very intentional about implementing activities that will foster student independence and supports them in reaching their full potential.
Aimee sets high standards for herself, her staff, and her students, and therefore students have demonstrated great gains under her guidance. Aimee is a very reflective teacher; always striving to reach her students in whatever capacity she can. She always has their best interest at heart and is very student-focused. Our students are fortunate to have Aimee Marriott as a teacher.” Aimee Marriott has been a SCOE employee since January 2007.
