Providing great public schools for Delaware students takes the combined efforts of a host of dedicated individuals.  The work of teachers, librarians, and counselors generates the most notice.  However, behind these important groups is an equally impressive and essential team of support professionals.  They are the support system for our schools and are indispensable.

Every morning, students are greeted with a warm “hello” and delivered safely to school by caring bus drivers.  Students are encouraged and inspired by instructional aides and other paraprofessionals during their classes.  They rely on food service workers to provide nutritious meals to help them stay focused.  The hard-working custodians maintain a productive learning environment by keeping the schools safe, clean, and healthy.  Our school nurses provide care when the students are sick and encouragement and comfort when they need it.

And don’t forget the secretaries, bookkeepers, and clerks who stuff the plans, register the students, and maintain records so our schools can stay open and operating within budget.

DSEA is proud to represent over 2,500 education support professionals, who, together with educators, make the care and education of Delaware’s 130,000 public school students their top priority.

Whether you teach, drive a bus, work in an office, prepare meals, or clean and maintain a building, you are an essential part of making public schools great.  It is DSEA’s mission to provide the services and support you need to do your job well and to fight for fair treatment and dignity.
