Mr. Luis Saavedra is a dedicated Instructional Aide who does his job with commitment and enthusiasm. He is hard-working, and pleasant to work with. What stands out most is his ability to make a difference in the learning of the students he helps. He has a gift of working alongside a teacher and knowing exactly how to support the students he serves. Students have shown progress and success as a direct result of the interaction Luis has had with classes. MLMS is fortunate to have Mr. Saavedra as a staff member and we are proud to nominate him as our 2015 Support Person of the Year.
