Board member Pam Ellis, who was on the PTA before she was elected, worked with association members on many legislative issues that affected public education.
"Every time there's been an attack on public education they've been side-by-side with us fighting for what's right for public education," Ellis said. "If we didn't have classified employees, teachers and kids would still be cleaning out the classrooms like they did in the one-room school house. Kids would bring lunches to school in a pail. There would be nobody at the front desk. The classified employees make school a nicer environment and free-up teachers so they can focus on instruction."
District board members recognized Chaires at Tuesday's meeting and adopted a resolution recognizing classified employees week.
Chaires, who has served on 12 separate district advisory committees and served for many years at Wilson Middle School, started working in the office at Daily High School about a year ago, assistant Principal Carmen Lebrecque said.
"She is a self-starter and she takes a task and runs with it," Lebrecque said. "And when she takes it over you know everything is going to be OK"
One of the intangible gifts Chaires brings is her sense of humor, Lebrecque said.
"It's just a contagious laugh where you know it's something really funny," Lebrecque said. "She can make you laugh ? she has that gift. She can read students and [staff members] pretty well and she knows when they're having a bad day."
