What impact has Mr. Almedina had on colleagues and students over the past month?
Mr. Edwin Almedina was nominated for our October staff of the Month! Mr. Almedina acts as a one to one paraprofessional. He works with students on activities of daily living, job site skills, and helping to translate for some of our English Language Learners. His colleagues nominated him because he is, “always willing to help out anywhere”, is “reliable”, “answers calls on the radio quickly” and “remains calm in all situations”. Mr. Almedina has been with the High Road of Hartford team for two years. The students love his enthusiasm and willingness to participate with them in physical education!
“Mr Almedina has been a great support to the school as a whole but even more specifically to a new classroom teacher this year.” — Ronda Russo, Operations Manager
