Music that Describes Caroline

Caroline Febo Rivera was nominated by her colleague, Jessica Love.

"Words don't do her justice, but I will try," explains Love. "Caroline is our fabulous custodian here at Southwest Elementary. Our other custodian has been out since April, so Caroline has been doing her job and then some. She does overtime even if she's not asked, and she still attempts to come in and do her duties. I have seen her physically work while being in pain. She pushes past her wants and desires to assist others. She's also been a huge help in interpreting for our Spanish families. This barely scratches the surface."

Sweet Caroline completes her duties in the best way possible. She takes initiative in helping others even when it's not her responsibility. Caroline assists Spanish speaking families, helps monitor students during lunch and helps teachers in different ways. I love the attention and time she gives to our ESE self-contained students. Caroline not only demonstrates love to her job, but also to our special needs students. Plus she makes good coffee!
