Employee of the Month

Congratulations to Yagnesh Vadgama for being our September employee of the month!

Yagnesh has innovative ideas and brings them to life. He has helped to orchestrate our social skills participants in practicing their skills out in the community by taking them to frozen yogurt, bowling, the movies, etc. as well as have proven to be a huge asset to the behavior department.

One of his nominations read, "With LAUSD getting back up and started, we have a million little tasks to do, and being that I only have a couple LAUSD cases, I'm not as well versed in all the requirements. Yagnesh is ALWAYS happy to help me (and everyone else) out whenever we need help. He's also gone above and beyond making documents that will aide us in the upcoming school year, to ensure we and our teams are organized and completing everything required of us. He's also very responsive via phone or email when I have inquiries about the social skills program. He always has a happy demeanor in the office and makes for a positive and happy workplace!"

Yagnesh, we are so happy that you are a part of our team, we look forward to many more years together.
