To The Daily Sun,

The annual observance of National Education Support Professionals (ESP) Day is on November 20, during American Education Week. As a paraeducator at Elm St. School, I'm proud to be a member of a team that works together to ensure the success of all our students. I'm equally proud to join in celebrating the invaluable contributions ESPs make to quality public education.

Today, ESPs do more than provide support to children — we help to transform public education one school and one student at a time. In celebration of National Education Support Professionals Day, I invite parents and community members in Laconia to learn more about how ESPs serve as essential partners in making great public schools. We are One Education Workforce Serving the Whole Student.

I encourage parents, students, and community members to take time to thank ESPs and recognize their hard work. ESPs touch the lives of their students and the future of our nation.

Kim O'Neil
EAL President
