Employee of the Month
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Steven Andres-Aquino
“The BEST thing is that he is so nice and responds right away and clearly describes the conversation he has had with our parents.”
“He always goes above and beyond for us and I am so thankful for his hard work and dedication to our school.”
“EVERYDAY: He maintains a positive attitude; everyone gets excited to see him during Google meets and parents/guardians are thrilled that an interpreter is present. He is respectful, courteous, and a team player. Most importantly he is definitely a Corkran Cardinal that RISES above!”
Steven Andres-Aquino is an essential “spoke in the wheel” of Corkran Middle School. As the bilingual facilitator, he helps the student’s family members communicate with the school staff. This year he helped during parent/teacher conferences, made countless calls and text reminders to parents about upcoming quizzes, test, or other opportunities. He visited the homes of several students to promote attendance of our ELL students while we were virtual. He bridged the gap between teachers and parents that could never be achieved because of the language barrier.
Steven is a fabulous asset to the school community. He makes the students and their families feel connected to their school family. He even translated welcome back post cards, birthday post cards, and student of the week certificates that were being sent home.
Mr. Andres-Aquino, you are a fantastic liaison and have helped close the language gap in Glen Burnie, you are absolutely deserving of the Employee of the Month for May 2021. Congratulations!
