Julissa Cardona Banner ImageJulissa Cardona has been named as the 2019 School-Related Employee of the Year for the Osceola School District in recognition of her unwavering support to schools, her outstanding work ethic, and her dedication to children and their families. For five years, she has been employed in the district’s Special Programs Department, where she currently serves as a Title 1 Parent Liaison. Her primary focus is the creation and implementation of the Learn2Read program partnership with the Osceola County Library System and the Mommy and Me program at Cypress Elementary.

As part of the Learn2Read program, she trains over 4,000 parents and 0-2-year-old students in early childhood literacy. Parents are taught how to engage with their children and deliver educational playtime activities to stimulate early childhood development. In the Mommy and Me program, Ms. Cardona trains 1,500 mothers and helps to prepare three-year-old students to enter prekindergarten. Thanks to her expertise and care, these successful programs have expanded from one to five different library branches, and continue to be the highest attended programs offered at each location. Julissa champions parent engagement in education on a daily basis, and serves as an important and respected resource for the parents and children in our community.

Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace will now proudly forward her nomination on to the Florida Department of Education for consideration for the State's 2019 School-Related Employee of the Year Award.
