Every Saturday, we highlight a non-teaching staff member on our Facebook and Twitter (@vcsc_teamvigo) account, turning Saturday into #Staffurday to introduce you to some of the people who make school happen!

Every year is a great year to celebrate our staff, but this year has shined a bright light on the flexibility and compassion of our incredible staff.

Today, meet Linda Wright, the cafeteria manager at Terre Town Elementary School.

What motivates you?
My motivation has always been feeding the kids with food made from love.

How has your job changed due to COVID?
Communication has been the hardest thing for us, children not being able to see us smiling at them as they come into the cafeteria.

What is something that people don’t understand about your job?
I believe the misunderstanding is that we just serve food, when we also serve love and compassion to all the children!

Why do you love VCSC/your school?
I love VCSC for the way they always step up for the kids, just like now during this pandemic!  I love my school because we’re just one big family doing our best for the kids!

Be sure to check back on Wednesday as we highlight another teacher for #RedforEd Wednesday! We’ll continue both campaigns through the end of the school year.
