While I am employed by Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center, I serve Ontario Local Schools. Each day, my primary focus is the children of Ontario. I work hard to help the staff and families in a caring, nonjudgmental, and supportive manner to assist their student or child succeed academically, emotionally and socially during and after the school day. In addition, I work hard to teach the child how to help themselves.
Mid-Ohio supports me by providing continuing education, resources, test kits, protocols, scoring programs, laptop and legislative updates.
I have learned that the focus or mission starts at the very top of the administration and flows down to every person in the school system, including the cafeteria employees, bus drivers, educational aides, and families working together to raise a child.
The hardest part of my job is working with a child for a short period of time during the evaluation process. The best part is that I have the privilege of impacting a child's growth and development throughout their entire school career.
