Ms. Hasin Named FCPS Region 1 Outstanding Support Employee!
Ms. Bowser, Ms. Marik, and Ms. Brotemarkle Also Recognized at FCPS Honors!
Congratulations to Instructional Assistant Zerina Hasin who was recognized at the annual FCPS Honors event as the FCPS 2018 Region 1 Outstanding Support Employee and one of five finalists for this year's Outstanding School-based Support Employee Award!
Ms. Hasin encourages students to participate in their own way, which allows them to blossom. As an instructional assistant in the enhanced autism program, she’s praised for her calm positivity and ability to really get to know her students. Not only can she describe their IEP accommodations in detail, says a colleague, “she can also name their favorite snacks, siblings’ names, and pets.” Despite her regular schedule, Ms. Hasin has continued to support a group of fourth-grade boys since their first day of school. She goes out of her way to help coworkers as well. “Ms. Hasin is the first to volunteer for the hardest and most mundane jobs,” said one. “Her resilience is a great asset to our entire community.”
Congratulations also to the other Sunrise Valley Elementary School staff members recognized at FCPS Honors!
