I am so excited to introduce to you… RESPECT!
Support staff are typically the first to arrive at schools and universities as they unlock doors and turn on lights. They are also some of the first people to greet students when they arrive, who give students the academic support they need to become successful scholars, who carefully assist with their health, safety, and nutritional needs, and the last one who sees them home safely at the end of the day, and so much more. The value of their work is priceless. So it’s time we start treating them that way!
For the past 6 months, your IEA ESP Council has worked with education support professionals from around the state, licensed member allies, and IEA staff to organize and breathe life into this campaign. Now it’s your turn, we need you to join this campaign and share this information widely. You are an intigral part as we rally friends, neighbors, and colleagues to grow this campaign, and create a movement to bring RESPECT to every education support professional!!
