(ABC 6 News) -- This weeks Excellent Educator is a paraprofessional from Rochester Public Schools.
Sue Schultz is an Early Childhood Special Education paraprofessional at Churchill Elementary in Rochester.
"It's important for them to get a head start at the very beginning to be able to advance into the upper grades," she says.
Schultz has been working in the school district for seven years and enjoys seeing their growth.
"A lot of the kids I get to know from one year to the next and I can see their progress each year," says Schultz.
A true honor she says, something she shares with her colleagues.
"I couldn't do this without the help of all these guys (co-workers)," says Schultz, "it's just really special to know that everyday I can make a difference for their families and them."
