Congratulations Neeraja Bokkala! Sycamore Ridge Classified Employee of the Year

She goes above and beyond to make personal connections with the students to encourage their learning and build tenacity and grit. Flexibility seems to be her middle name and this is truly one of her star qualities. She is able go with the changing pace of the day, often being proactive to get ahead those changes. The ways she engages with students is respectful and empowering for even our most impacted. Students all enjoy working with Mrs. B.
