The Inspirational Person for the month of January is Pam Geiss, Paraprofessional at PORTA Central CBE.  Pam is a constant source of reliability in the classroom.  Pam will often come early and stay late; she goes above and beyond her duties to work with all students.  One of her greatest qualities is her ability to be a team player especially when problem solving.  She embodies so much of what it means to educate and inspire students.  Congratulations Pam.
