Congratulations to Brittany Poitier of Broadview Elementary School, on being named a 2020 Florida School-Related Employee of the Year finalist, announced today, May 13, 2020, by the Florida Department of Education. The annual state award recognizes outstanding education support personnel for the significant contributions they make to students and families in their schools and districts.
Poitier, Broward County Public Schools 2019/20 School-Related Employee of the Year, is one of five state finalists who will each receive a $5,850 cash prize. She serves as the community liaison at Broadview Elementary, where she provides support services to students and their families.
“I’ve always dreamed of being in a position where I could support and provide the necessary resources to help families operate to the best of their abilities,” said Poitier, who has transformed her office into the school’s food and clothing pantry. “My goal is to ensure that all families have their social, emotional, environmental and nutritional needs met. Once I can assist in getting a student’s social and environmental needs met, they blossom in ways never imagined.”
