Tina Fitzpatrick - October ESP

Tina Fitzpatrick The district is proud to recognize Tina Fitzpatrick, an ELL tutor, as the October Extra Special Staff Person of the month.
Tina is an outstanding educator and role model for students. She is attentive to student learning and committed to her work. Beyond the language instruction she deftly provides, Tina works hard to promote pride in each student’s culture and ethnicity. Tina’s inclusiveness is modeled in the International Club she established. These weekly gatherings bring 40-50 students together to share stories, food, camaraderie, and understanding.
“Tina is very creative, organized, and attentive to detail. She doesn’t let anyone fall behind while maintaining high expectations,” said Edith Becwar, a Denali Elementary second grade teacher. “Tina is always willing to go the extra mile.”
