Classified School Employees Week: Celebrating the People who Keep our Schools Running Smoothly

Posted by Devin Felix on 11 March, 2020

It’s Classified School Employees Week, and we’re recognizing a classified employee or group of employees each day this week. These are the employees who do the work to keeps our schools running so that students can focus on learning.

Today, meet custodian Susana Santiago. She’s worked for the Issaquah School District the past three years, and has worked mainly at Newcastle Elementary for the past seven months. She enjoys her interactions with other staff members and the feeling of creating a clean environment for students to learn.

“It’s very important because the next day the teachers and the students show up, and they come back with the school being clean,” she says.

Thank you to all our classified staff! It takes a lot of time, work and dedication to keep our schools running, and it couldn’t happen without you.
