Dr. Perales shared the following comment about Jyoti:

Jyoti has always been an exceptional School Psychologist, and it shows in everything she does, every day. Jyoti is always willing to go the distance and take care of business even when it’s difficult and stressful. She is pleasant, hardworking, and understanding. With her, our team works better and is better. I would love to publicly and profoundly offer my utmost respect and appreciation for her positive contributions…every day. Thank you Jyoti for making a difference!

Recently, in a time of crisis for one of our students, she showed exceptional compassion and resolve in helping the student through a traumatic experience. It was because of the strong relationship and trust she has built with this student over the past four years that he turned to our school for help when he needed it most. Because of her actions, this child was able to get through this difficult time and will continue to receive much-needed support.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication! You truly embody the Orange Unified EDGE!
