Joan Roberson has been named Osseo ESPs Local 7325 Educational Support Professional of the Year.
Roberson is the volunteer coordinator at Maple Grove Senior High. In addition to serving as the ESP site leader at Maple Grove Senior, Roberson is very involved with her local union and serves on its executive board. According to her colleagues, she is very pleasant to students and adult volunteers and is a wealth of information; if she cannot personally answer a question, she will go above and beyond to find an answer quickly.
Further, Roberson’s colleagues say she continually strives to find new and creative ways to utilize the skills of her volunteers. She values lifelong learning and attends many workshops and classes throughout the community.
Roberson will now compete for the 2017 Minnesota Educational Support Professional of the Year award. A selection committee will determine the winner of that award this fall.
