When Maria Seijo began her career with Orange County Public Schools 18 years ago, she knew she wanted to make a difference in childhood education. In her current role as senior executive assistant of the district’s Innovation Office, she is known as a dedicated professional who goes out of her way to assist and support the schools she serves. As the sole support staff member in the office, Seijo is masterful at multitasking and providing outstanding service to district and school-based staff. Among her colleagues, she is considered the “engine” that ensures school operations are running smoothly.

Congratulations to the 2019-20 Support Person of the Year finalists!
