Alberto "Tico" Justiniano Named Osceola School District's 2016 School-Related Employee of the Year
Alberto "Tico" Justiniano, the Head Custodian at Narcoossee Elementary, has been selected as the 2016 School-Related Employee of the Year for the Osceola School District in a ceremony hosted by the Education Foundation - Osceola in recognition of his tireless efforts to serve the children, the school, and the district. Mr. Justiniano is an integral part of the day-to-day success of the school, as his commitment and passion for people and his work guides him to go above and beyond the call of duty.
Mr. Justiniano’s colleagues at the school are quick to point out that his day is not governed by the clock, but rather by what needs to be accomplished. The professionalism and care that are reflected in his custodial-related duties make students and staff feel that their needs are most important. He holds the highest expectations for himself and his custodial staff to make sure the campus is a high-quality learning environment. He attends to the demands of so many immediately, humbly, and with a smile.
Besides being an excellent employee, it is what Mr. Justiniano does outside his regular custodial duties that have made him a blessing to so many. He serves as an outstanding role model as he mentors students who are struggling academically or are behaviorally challenged. He also works with patience, kindness, and respect to instill a sense of purpose and accomplishment in young people.
Superintendent Luciano will now proudly forward Mr. Justiniano's nomination on to the Florida Department of Education for consideration for the State's 2016 School-Related Employee of the Year Award.
