Monthly EDGE Recognition

The recipients of the “YOU’VE GOT THE EDGE” award for May 2024 are Elena Dull, Teacher at Orange High School and Johanan Guzman, Office Manager in the Special Education Department. Both Elena and Joanan go above and beyond to serve the staff and students of the Orange Unified School District in ways that reflect the core values of OUSD’s EDGE.

Orange High School Principal Sheryl Anderson had this to say about Elena:

“Elena has been an important and valuable asset to our AVID program. Since she became the Coordinator of this program 3 years ago, we have seen a tremendous growth in the implementation of AVID strategies as seen in our monthly WICOR walks. Orange High School recently received revalidation of being an AVID National Demonstration School in which only 203 schools have received this honor nationwide. Elena’s hard word and commitment played a critical role in this achievement. Her continuous passion for providing excellent teaching and opportunities to all our students is truly appreciated. Her positive impact on the students and school community is priceless."  

Special Education Coordinator, Sarah Dalton had this to say about Johanan

Johanan is a positive influence in the office and in everyone she interacts with. She handles the most challenging situations with ease and a smile on her face. She is always willing to support and go above and beyond to ensure the department is able to provide care, support, and service to the students. She demonstrates excellence by her high caliber of work and her willingness to jump in whenever a need arises. She brings creative and innovative ideas to help ensure support is being provided as efficiently as possible. We are grateful to have such a committed and invaluable team member." 

Congratulations again to Elena Dull and Johanan Guzman and thank you both for your dedication and devotion to the students of the Orange Unified School District.
