Celebrate ESPs

ESP DAY 2015 is Wednesday Nov 18th!

Each day Education Support Professionals around the country go to work to serve students. Please join us on Wednesday November 18th and celebrate national ESP day! ESPs make up nearly 40% of the school workforce. They work together daily with teachers and administrators to create and maintain schools as safe and supportive learning environments. They are the superheroes, the unsung heroes who meet the needs of the whole student — physical, mental, emotional, and social.
Here are some facts about ESPs
  • Over 2.9 million ESPs work in the nation’s public schools
