Employees of the Year 2016-17
San José Unified is home to more than 3,000 employees who make the extraordinary ordinary every day, from teachers and instructional associates to bus drivers and nutrition specialists to nurses and attendance secretaries. You may never meet some of them, but they are all working together to prepare today’s students to be the thinkers, leaders, and creators of tomorrow.
We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking employer, providing a high level of support, continuous growth, and mindful leadership that helps foster and retain a motivated and successful workforce.
Each year, we recognize employees who go above and beyond to elevate opportunities for all, and last month, we honored them during a special event at Gunderson High School:
- Tracy Decaires, Grounds Equipment Operator
- Gail Ippolito, Instructional Associate, Trace Elementary
- Bertha Marquez, Office Assistant, Hoover Middle School
- Allison Pruitt, Intervention Specialist, Washington Elementary
Please join us in extending our hearty thanks and congratulations to these outstanding employees — and the entire team that makes San José Unified the district of choice for anyone who wants to have a positive impact on our future.
