Like so many who share the VVSD job title of executive secretary, those two words fail to describe what Mrs. Patti Zack means to the Irene King School Community.
It is the norm for to observe Mrs. Zack playing Uno with students, assisting teachers with the copy machine, consoling students who just need a friendly voice to brighten their day, connecting with parents or volunteering for after school clubs. Anyone in need of a good snack, creative idea, helping hand or good story that is guaranteed to bring a laugh, Patti is the one they turn to!
Mrs. Zack is an example of how important the “support staff” is to a school and why those two simple words are an apt description as she is part of the backbone of Irene King School.
