IH Staff EduHERO

We continue to shine the spotlight on our world-class faculty and staff with our IH EduHERO recognition! This month, we travel to Indian Hill Primary School, where we celebrate outstanding educational aide Deborah Cocchiararo as our October IH EduHERO! Nominated under ALL THREE of our #IHPromise strategic focus areas, including, Learners as Doers, Learners as Individuals, and Learners as the Whole Child, Ms. Cocchiararo shows her dedication to the #IHPromise each day!

From the nomination form:
“As an educational aide, Deborah has the amazing responsibility of understanding her students’ needs even when they are unable to communicate them for themselves. Deborah recognizes her students’ strengths and helps bring them out so they feel a sense of accomplishment in everything they do. She is genuinely invested in helping children thrive even in the most challenging situations. Deborah’s patience and passion for what she does is evident in the way she cares for all students.”

We appreciate you, Ms. Cocchiararo, and congratulate you on this much-deserved EduHERO award!

In service to our children,
