SAN DIEGO - Coinciding with Classified School Employee Week, the San Diego Unified School District will honor its 2020 Classified Employee of the Year and runner-up while celebrating all classified employees throughout the week.
Andrea Eaton, Maintenance Planning Senior Coordinator for Physical Plant Operations (PPO), has been named Classified Employee of the Year for 2020.
Our classified employees are the glue that holds our schools together,” said Superintendent Cindy Marten. “The dedication of our classified employees is nothing short of inspiring. I would like to congratulate Andrea as we celebrate all of our classified employees.”
In her more than 16 years with the district, Eaton has worked on sustainability programs, including a role developing the district’s solar projects, among others. She has also championed a Health and Wellness Program within PPO.
“As the single point of contact for all self-help requests, Ms. Eaton works collaboratively with various community/volunteer groups, school administrators, school-based staff and central office departments,” her supervisor Bryan Ehm wrote in his nomination letter. “Her guiding focus is to meet the needs of the community, students and staff of San Diego Unified School District. The strong relationships she has established have benefited the communities we serve and the district immensely.”
San Diego Unified will celebrate its Classified Employee of the Year on its website and with video tributes on social media; the video honoring Andrea Eaton can be seen here:
The district will also honor Classified Employee of the Year Runner-up Sylvia Hoffman, Administrative Asst. I at the San Diego Metropolitan Regional & Technical (MET) High School. Known as “Mama Bear” to the 150 MET students, she is highly respected by her colleagues as their “go-to” person for matters large and small.
The selection process for district Classified Employees of the Year is thorough. It begins at the school where nominees are first selected as their school’s Classified Employee of the Year. These individuals have the option to apply for district Classified Employee of the Year.
San Diego Unified’s Classified Employee of the Year Celebration would not be possible without the generous support from sponsors: California Coast Credit Union, California Schools VEBA, Mission Federal Credit Union, and North Island Credit Union
