Difference Makers: Staff and Community Members Support our Core Values

February 2021

At the February 11 Board Meeting, our Board of Trustees recognized this quarter’s Difference Makers. Congratulations to Patricia Guevara, Hughes Elementary School teacher on special assignment, Annette Vizcarra, Buchser Middle School secretary, and Mandi Ching, Hughes Elementary School 5th grade parent.

Our Difference Makers program recognizes staff and community members who support our district's core values:

  • Students First
  • Integrity and Ethical Stewardship
  • Connected Families and Collaborative Community
  • Equity and Social Justice
  • Empathy and Respect
  • World-leading and Future Ready

All of this quarter’s recipients were recognized for the core value of Connected Families and Collaborative Community. They will each receive a certificate of recognition and a Difference Maker pin in acknowledgment of their hard work and dedication to our district.

Difference Makers are nominated by staff to a selection committee of classified, certificated, and management staff on a quarterly basis.
