DCSD Family Engagement Facilitator Named a Local Hero by Telemundo Atlanta.

Angelica Rosso, the Region 1 Family Engagement Center Facilitator for the DeKalb County School District (DCSD), was honored as a local hero at Todos Somos Heroes 2017, which is a signature luncheon sponsored by Telemundo Atlanta.

Todos Somos means “we are all heroes” in Spanish. The ceremony acknowledged local heroes who are making an extraordinary impact in their communities. Rosso was named a hero for her work with DCSD. Her duties include assisting families with supporting the education of their students, and building bridges between the district and community.

Telemundo Atlanta has posted this special video honoring Rosso.

Ross said the award carries a special place in her heart.

“I am extremely humbled and honored for receiving the Todos Somos Heroes award. I truly enjoy working with the parents of our students. My passion has always been driven by one single question: how can I better serve my parents and my community,” she said. “Each day, I attempt to equip DCSD parents with the educational tools and resources necessary to ensure their child’s educational success.”
