Happy Education Support Professionals Day

Today we celebrate Education Support Professionals Day. Dear Members, ESPs hold a special place in the hearts of everyone in our school communities. If you ask any student about their day, they will likely have a story to share about the bus driver who gets them to and from school safely, the secretary who greets them every morning with a smile, the cafeteria worker who feeds them healthy meals at lunch, or the paraeducator who provides them with the space to learn and grow every day. These ESPs, and many more, work alongside other caring adults to help our students […]

The Scott McGilvray Children’s Fund – Real Students, Real Families, Real Help

Created by NEA–New Hampshire, the Scott McGilvray Children’s Fund helps kids be ready to learn because a child’s physical, social, or emotional needs should never stand in the way of classroom success.  For more than 25 years we’ve helped children obtain items or services essential to their well-being and success in school, including clothes, medical care, food, transportation, or related services not provided by other agencies. We all know that educators are caring and empathetic – it’s what drove many of us to the profession in the first place. Very often, an educator is the first one to notice when […]
