Students First, Equity

Maria Cruz

Facilities Manager, McMeen Elementary

“Maria embodies many DPS Shared Core Values. For example, she put Students First by staying hours past her shift with our technology specialist at McMeen so all students could pick up their computers on distribution day. Maria also assisted with sanitizing cords and Chromebooks, modeling our Shared Core Value of Equity through her understanding that all students need access to the necessary tools to learn remotely. Additionally, Maria always has a smile on her face and willingness in her heart. Thank you Maria for making a stressful time less so and for your willingness to ensure all DPS students have what they need to learn.”
