Today we celebrate National Education Support Professionals (ESP) Day.

Each year, we set aside the Wednesday of American Education Week, to celebrate and express our gratitude to the Education Support Professionals who make New Hampshire public schools such great places to learn. Education Support Professionals work tirelessly to serve our children and communities with care and professionalism. They are often the first to arrive at school and among the last to leave for the day.

Our hope is that through education, people will come to better understand the crucial role
