spotlight logoNote: Each month we will be highligting a staff member nominated by his/her peers to be honored in our new Staff Spotlight feature. We hope it shines the light on many of our unsung employees who make a difference for our students and our district.

Kind, helpful, tolerant, dedicated. These are just a few of the words colleagues used to describe our first Staff Spotlight nominee: Tom Joseph, computer assistant/paraprofessional at Lakewood City Academy.
