David Aguirre, an educational technician at Lyman Moore Middle School, was presented with an “Essence of PPS Award” at the Portland Board of Public Education’s Dec. 20 meeting. The award recognizes staff members who embody the work that is happening at their schools and reflect the goals and mission of their schools and the district. 

Aguirre was nominated by Lyman Moore Principal Ben Donaldson. Here’s what Principal Donaldson had to say about Mr. Aguirre:

“David is an Ed Tech in the Functional Life Skills program at Moore, which serves students with physical disabilities. David is a dedicated teacher and coach who guides many students and adults in our community. Whether he is helping his students through learning activities or helping his athletes push themselves to run faster, David is a masterful mentor to students. Whether he is organizing faculty to share their passions by sharing a physical collection of items from their childhood or to remain physically active and connected through morning basketball games at school, David shares his energy and passion for life with our entire faculty. The mission of Moore and the Portland Public Schools is to honor individuals for who they are and how they can contribute to their communities, and David is the essence of that. Put simply, Moore wouldn't be the same without David!”

Superintendent Xavier Botana said, “Congratulations, Mr. Aguirre! You are clearly deserving of this recognition. Thank you for all you do for your students, your colleagues and the Portland Public Schools!”
