DAEP proudly presents our September Employees of the Month: Mr. Jonathon Figueroa (Instructional) and Nurse Esperanza Jackson (Non-Instructional). Congratulations, and thank you for everything you do for our students and staff!
Donna ISD Wellness Program is an opportunity to develop healthier lifestyles by supporting activities that support well-being.
At DAEP campus, employees and students relieve some stress with some on-site walking. They reap the benefits of physical, mental, and occupational well-being while getting some fresh air at the end of their work day.
Leading this fitness activity is Coach Onofre Valdez III, who promotes it as a great tool for lowering stress levels and increasing physical and mental performance. “It is a free and fun activity that helps in developing the mind, body, and soul-- supporting an overall healthier lifestyle and well-being.”
Coach Valdez has been a fitness advocate at DAEP for almost 8 years.
Aerobics is another fun fitness activity supporting the Wellness Program. It is a class that all district employees can attend and feel good about when maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Doris Morin, Administrative Assistant at DAEP has been leading this class for the past 20 years. She is an avid runner and a fitness advocate. " I run every morning, it is a good way to lower stress and maintain a healthy lifestyle." Doris also joins the staff and students every afternoon to walk on-site.
