John is a Systems Analyst for the Owen J. Roberts School District and primarily located at the High School. John has worked in our district for over 20 years. Here's what a few of the staff members had to say about John that earned him the employee of the month:
"John will work tirelessly to solve any technology problems that we have. I was unable to access a document from my Z drive while at home for the FID day and John was able to find it and send it to me so that I could do a better job of teaching my students. He is an unsung hero in our building. He always has a positive attitude and is ready and willing to help." - Mark DeFusco
"John always helps us out with our technology. He has a great attitude, no judgment about our lack of tech knowledge, and is prompt to reply and follow up." - Karen Suzadail
"John is very knowledgeable. He seems to be in multiple places at once as he runs from classroom to classroom to address our problems. He is able to solve almost any technology problem that arises, and in the rare occasion that he does not have the answer, he finds it. He is always kinds and never makes us feel inept for sometimes asking questions with obvious answers. He is most deserving of this recognition." - Natalie Smith
"John has been incredibly helpful to me, always responding to my questions and issues quickly and efficiently. He goes out of his way to be helpful, and is always very kind." - Heidi Bonner
Please join us as we offer our sincere thanks to John for his continuing service to the community, and as we congratulate him on being named the OJR Employee of the Month for March 2024!
