Amy Trinta and Catherine Manning were both honored by the Patterson Joint Unified School District as Employees of the Month of May at a recent school board meeting.

Trinta was recognized for going above and beyond her duties. “Amy Trinta is a fantastic teacher! She works very hard at meeting the needs of every child in her class,” Sandra Villasenor, Las Palmas School principal, said.

But Trinta not only works hard in her Las Palmas classroom, Villasenor said, she works hard outside of class. She is also an amazing STEM/504 Coordinator for the Las Palmas School site and has taken on SST Online without hesitation. Villasenor also noted in her nomination that Trinta has trained staff, keeps a positive outlook and is always looking for ways to improve the SST Process. “Las Palmas is lucky to have such a dedicated teacher inside and outside the classroom.” Villasenor concluded.

Catherine Manning, the Del Puerto High School registrar, was nominated by Kiran Kahlon. Manning was recognized for being organized and ensuring that the school office is run productively over the course of the school year. She always performs her work with perfectionism, Kahlon said. Her nomination form notes her people skills are exceptional and her her postiveness is commended. She also easily establishes friendly relations with staff and students being a huge asset to Del Puerto High School.

She arrives to the campus bright and early and stays beyond her work hours to ensure all of her duties have been completed. She also makes sure the students and staff are ready to begin their day by welcoming them with a smile.
