Congratulations to Traci Brauns, our January Employee of the Month, who works as a paraeducator at Stevenson Elementary.

“Traci is incredible at her job and is a game changer for the students she works with,” said Veronica Mathison, principal at Stevenson Elementary. “She knows what needs to be done, expresses it clearly, and finds ways to be more efficient and take on more each year.”

Mathison noted that Brauns shows integrity in her work, acting as a great role model to her students on how to participate in the world. Additionally, Brauns has a great sense of humor and helps students see the humor in a situation. 

“Traci is able to balance all of the stressors and joys of being an elementary para with grace every day, while being fair and respectful to all students,” said Mathison. “She is truly an asset to Stevenson Elementary.”

Congratulations to Traci, on the well-deserved honor as Employee of the Month!
