Glacier Middle School teacher Edissa Jaramillo empowers students to discover their passions and reach their full potential.
In high school, Edissa joined Team Read, where she was trained and worked as a reading tutor for elementary students.
Recognizing her passion for teaching, she worked at a developmental preschool during college. After graduation, she became a bilingual paraeducator.
After several years of working with children, a teacher pulled Edissa aside and told her she would make a great teacher. With the encouragement and support of her colleagues, Edissa returned to school and earned her teaching certificate.
Today, Edissa works with students who receive special education services. Watch how Edissa fosters academic and social growth to ensure her students graduate prepared for the future they choose.
