“We thank you for all that you do for us, for all that you do for the kids, and for all the people that you work with, we very much appreciate it,” said Superintendant, Ralph Napolitano.

Napolitano thanked each of the three for their dedication.

“Deb I think you probably have one of the most complex jobs in the district, because when it comes to trying to keep order in today’s day and age, there are so many rules, so many regulations, and so many things that require a careful and a thorough look and a thoughtful look. You’re the absolute perfect person for the job because you’re all of those, careful, thoughtful and thorough,” Napolitano said.

The three stood up before a crowd of family,friends and other members in the district and were congratulated and applauded.

“You’re probably two of the friendliest TA’s in the district, and every time I walk into a classroom that you’re located in…you’re always there with a smile, always willing to lend a hand to make everyone feel very welcome, very respected which I appreciate,” he said.
