Mrs. Vivian Robles is our Reading Specialist but she is also our person who always goes above and beyond to serve in whatever capacity needed. With this pandemic going on staffing is tight and many of us are not only doing our job, but filling in for others as well. Mrs. Robles has been one of those amazing staff members who have stepped up to make sure our students are getting what they need. It’s a task she does not take lightly. She has spent countless hours, late evenings, and much of her own time making sure students have what they need and that they don’t skip a beat in their instruction. We are so grateful for Mrs. Robles. Thank you for all you do!
