Beverly Miller, a teacher assistant at Konnoak Elementary School in Forsyth County, is the 2018-19 recipient of the Education Support Professional of the Year Award, presented by the North Carolina Association of Educators. The award is given annually by the North Carolina Education Support Professionals Association (NC-ESPA), a division of NCAE which represents public school employees who work in the following areas: clerical services, custodial and maintenance services, food services, health and student services, security services, skilled trades, technical services, transportation services, and those who are paraeducators.

An active member of the Forsyth County Association of Educators (FCAE), Miller is a building representative at her school and serves on the Forsyth County Education Support Professionals Board of Directors. She also volunteers on several committees.

Miller is a staunch supporter of public education and believes that she makes a difference in the lives of children every day. “As an instructional assistant, I work closely with students and teachers to ensure a successful educational experience,” Miller said. “I also serve as an advocate for my students outside of the classroom. As an educator, and member of NCAE, it’s my job to represent them to the best of my ability. My focus is on helping make their future the brightest it can be, as well as fighting for better compensation, due process rights, and working conditions for all education support professionals.”

The award was presented to Miller by the division’s president, Karen Slade, and other members of the ESP Board.

NCAE is the state’s largest education advocacy organization for public school employees, and represents active, retired, and student members.
