West DeFuniak Elementary would like to congratulate Ms. Teresa Macias for being chosen as Educational Support Person of the Year. Ms. Macias is a bilingual interpreter for our school where she has worked for the last eight years.
Prior to coming to WDE, Ms. Macias was an interpreter and translator in several settings in Mexico. One of her positions involved translating instruction manuals for electronic governors for a small industrial maintenance company.
Several of Ms. Macias’s family members work in the academic field. Her paternal grandmother was a teacher, her cousin is a college professor, and another family member is an advisor in a university in Mexico City. Her nephew has a school where adults prepare to obtain degrees and certifications in programs sponsored by their employers.
Ms. Macias enjoys assisting the hard-working teachers and students at WDE as well as facilitating the communication between parents and teachers. Ms. Macias says, “I am grateful because I continuously learn from all of them.”
Congratulations to Ms. Macias our Educational Support Person of the Year. Pictured with Ms. Macias is Mrs. Darlene Paul, Principal of West DeFuniak Elementary.
