The Stellar Employee for the Month of March is Ms. Audy Roper. 

 

Audy Roper is a bilingual teacher assistant at Ensley Elementary School. She is in her first year at Ensley and with the district.  Ms. Roper has become a valued member of the Ensley team and has gained the respect of students, parents, faculty, staff, and administration.  No doubt, she has set the bar high when it comes to dedication, performance, and attitude.  Ms. Roper plays an important role in supporting English Language Learners (ELLS) to receive the maximum benefit from day-to-day activities.  She works with ELLS, helping them with both educational and social development.  The ELL students know that Ms. Roper cares about them because she takes the time to listen and understand what they are saying.  She shows interest in the things that are important to them, she demonstrates patience when working through lessons, and she recognizes each student’s unique qualities.  Because of her genuine caring attitude, students are motivated to engage in learning activities.

 

Audy Roper is an effective communicator and she is sensitive to student needs.  She has quickly established a good rapport with the ELL parents, and she uses discernment when communicating with them.

 

Because of these positive interactions with parents, faculty and staff, good relationships and unified partnerships are formed among students, parents and teachers. 

 

Ms. Roper is team player, showing flexibility and dedication to her position as she maintains steady performance, and she is always willing to accept new challenges with a positive attitude.  Doreen Wells, the ESOL teacher Ms. Roper assists, describes working with her as an absolute privilege.  She sees Ms. Roper as role model for students, staff and faculty. 

 

Audy Roper is Stellar because of her excellent work ethic and dedication to the staff and students throughout the Escambia County School District.  She exemplifies the pillars of “People” and “Service” and it is for these reasons, and so many others, that she has been selected as our Stellar Employee of the Month of March 2021.
