On National Recognition Day for ESPs, Thank You For All You Do!

Dear Educational Support Professionals (ESP), The NEA-NH ESP Issues Committee believes that our ESP members fill a variety of important roles in our public schools. Every one of them is critical to the success of each student who attends New Hampshire public schools; no position is more important than another.

School employees share a common responsibility to provide for the learning environment, the health and mental well-being, and the physical safety of students.
