When I retired from the military, I could have gone to work for several different defense contractors, but God called me to become a teacher. I remember my first year as a teacher, and teaching was a whirlwind because I’m not a trained educator.
A school is more than just a place of learning; it’s a community where students should feel safe, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential. While teachers and administrators play critical roles in shaping this environment, the often unsung heroes, classified staff members, are instrumental in enhancing school climate and ensuring student safety.
Today is Veteran’s Day, and I want to thank our Veterans and their families for their dedicated service. Their sacrifices create the foundation for the service members who protect the principles of our nation.
Behind every thriving school district, a team of dedicated professionals works tirelessly to ensure the educational engine runs smoothly. While teachers and administrators often take the spotlight, the classified staff members quietly play an instrumental role in the day-to-day operations.
In the intricate web of a school ecosystem, classified staff members play a crucial role in shaping the overall educational experience. Beyond their administrative duties, these individuals have a unique opportunity to establish positive relationships with students.
In a school district, students’ success relies not only on the efforts of teachers but also on the dedicated and invaluable contributions of classified staff members. Classified staff encompasses diverse professionals who fulfill various roles to support the educational experience.
