Congratulations to our September 2017 Educator of the month, Betty Tracas!
I am a School Nurse because I love to work with students and their families! I learn something new each year as new diseases and illnesses come my way.
I enjoy being able to teach families about illnesses, how to prevent further complications from illnesses, being able to educate young people about illnesses, and how to take care of themselves in order to lead healthy lives. Each one is a challenge in some way. I have been a School Nurse going on 34 years this year. In my Spare time I enjoy participating in a book club, going to the gym and exercising, and just relaxing and listening to my fountain in my backyard. It just gives me such peace and calmness. I am Greek-American and love to attend Greek Festivals in the region. I love to eat Greek food, but am a terrible cook! Being a member of the Vacaville Teacher’s Association means that I can go to my site Representatives and have them clarify parts of the contract that I might not understand. It means that I have support if needed. It is reassuring to have such knowledgeable people right there to help me.
