Mr. Chandler is an A+ teacher.

Monica Comeaux— Purchasing Department, Bid Specialist
Those who nominated her said, " We have been honored to have Monica Comeaux as part of our purchasing family for five years. Monica's official title is a bid specialist but anyone who has worked with her can tell you she does much more.  She is the Department trainer, making sure all new bookkeepers are taught all aspects of the requisition process.  She is admired by all for her fun and loving personality.  We are truly blessed to have her in the Purchasing Department."

She is a leader at ESE who is well respected by peers, students, and parents."

Each month, campuses and departments select an individual to be honored as a Super Staffer for their outstanding work in advancing student achievement.
