Working with parents as a team

Darlene McKnight, Trenton Paraprofessional Association member, is the latest educational support professional to be featured in a series of ads running on Philadelphia’s BEN-FM.

In February, she shares her role as a parent liaison in Trenton’s public schools. She talks about how she works to expand students’ worldview to see greater possibilities for themselves. Through her work she knows firsthand that all parents want their children to attend a great public school. In the ad, McKnight talks about how she helps students see their role in taking advantage of the opportunities a great public education can provide.

McKnight has been active in the Trenton school system for over 30 years, first as a volunteer and now as a staff member.
