County educators honored
As an annual tradition, the El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE) announced the recognition of selected employees who help deliver high-quality education to the children of El Dorado County.
“Despite job titles, everyone who works to support a child’s education, at any level, is an educator in our eyes – everyone who works at EDCOE, directly or indirectly, has the potential to make a difference in the lives of children,” said Superintendent of Schools Jeremy M. Meyers. “It is crucial that we recognize those individuals who every day go above and beyond, while delivering the highest-quality education to our students.”
EDCOE bestowed the first annual ‘Excellence in Education’ award to one person who demonstrates excellence in education by being the embodiment of innovation, collaboration, and commitment to the success of all students. Superintendent Meyers presented the inaugural award to Jamie Frink – a teacher of the intellectually disabled at Rolling Hills Middle School – for her dedication and commitment to El Dorado County’s diverse student population.
