It’s only Sandra Cortez’s first year as a teaching assistant at HISD and she’s knocking it out the park as Employee of the Month for March.
“Sandra is very hands-on and always has a smile for everyone that she meets,” Principal LaShonda Bilbo- Ervin said. “Her creativeness in supporting our students can be seen inside and outside of the classroom.”
Representing Holland Middle School, it’s hard not to feel Cortez’s presence in the hallways. Her gift for energizing and inspiring students is one of the reasons she’s being recognized this month.
“I want to thank Principal Bilbo-Ervin for giving me an opportunity to come here and do the best I can,” Cortez said. “From my very first day, the staff and parents have made me feel like family.”
