Serving as Radio Man at the height of the cold war, Roy was tasked with keeping communications flowing between ships and bases over the vast Pacific Ocean. Roy had requested to be stationed in Hawaii, but was sent to Adak, Alaska for 2 years. He did, however, get his island wish and spent his last two years of duty in Guam.</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> Raised in El Centro, Roy felt the pressure to get a job and provide for his family after high school. Joining the Navy at 21, Roy was more mature and responsible than the other recruits. As a result he was chosen by his boot camp Captain to be his company’s Outstanding Recruit, an honor that surprised even his family.</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> Returning to Imperial Valley in 1980, Roy eventually found his purpose and calling in life with ICOE’s Special Education program. The affable Navy Veteran is tasked with helping students with behavior problems in our classrooms as a Behavior Assistant at the Imperial Valley Center for Exceptional Children (IVCEC). Often being assigned to a student as a one-on-one assistant, Roy gets to see progress in children that others may miss. One touching story Roy shared was of a child that was acting out and was often disruptive. The student’s disability was so severe that she was without communication – trapped in a world without being able to let others know what she wanted or how she was feeling. After weeks and months of consistent work, there was a break through. The student learned enough language to communicate at a basic level. For the first time ever, she could communicate that she wanted something to eat or go to the bathroom. Her family was ecstatic, and coincidently, the child’s behavior problems went away completely. She could speak!</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> “This is my true calling” said Aguilera, “I love my job and want to work with these children for the rest of my life”. When asked about what he’s learned in the past 15 years working for ICOE, Roy commented that each student’s needs are different, and as a result, the most important ingredients to his job are having a good measure of patience, love and compassion.  A good recipe for all of us!  </p> </div> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 04:37:35 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 543 at https://www.icoe.org Red Ribbon Week and Enrique Kiki Camarena https://www.icoe.org/news/red-ribbon-week-and-enrique-kiki-camarena <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Red Ribbon Week and Enrique Kiki Camarena</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-10/Enrique%20Kiki%20Camarena.jpg" width="219" height="300" alt="Enrique Kiki Camarena" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/toddevangelisticoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="todd.evangelist@icoe.org">todd.evangelis…</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 10/23/2017 - 07:45</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image-caption field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">DEA Agent, Enrique Kiki Camarena</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Enrique (Kiki) S. Camarena was born on July 26, 1947 in Mexicali, Mexico. He graduated from Calexico High School in Calexico, California in 1966, and in 1968 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps. After serving in the Marine Corps for two years,</span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"> </span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Kiki was a Calexico Fireman, Calexico Police Officer, and an Imperial County Deputy Sheriff.  Kiki joined the Drug Enforcement Administration in June of 1974. His first assignment as a Special Agent with DEA was in a familiar place - Calexico, California. </span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">In 1977, after three years in Calexico, he was reassigned to the Fresno District Office in Northern California. Four years later, Kiki received transfer orders to Mexico, where he would work out of the Guadalajara Resident Office. For four and one-half years in Mexico, Kiki remained on the trail of the country's biggest marijuana and cocaine traffickers. And in early 1985, he was extremely close to unlocking a multi-billion-dollar drug pipeline. However, before he could expose the drug trafficking operations to the public, he was kidnapped on February 7, 1985. On that fateful day, while headed to a luncheon with his wife, Mika, Kiki was surrounded by five armed men who threw him into a car and sped away. That was the last time anyone but his kidnappers would see him alive.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">It is believed that Special Agent Camarena's death occurred two days later, but his body was not discovered until March 5, 1985. He was 37 years old and was survived by his wife, Mika and their three children, Enrique, Daniel and Erik. During his 11 years with DEA, Kiki received two Sustained Superior Performance Awards, a Special Achievement Award and, posthumously, the Administrator’s Award of Honor, the highest award granted by DEA.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Shortly after Kiki's death, Congressman, Duncan Hunter, and high school friend Henry Lozano launched C<em><span style="margin: 0px; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;">amarena Clubs </span></em>in Kiki's hometown of Calexico, California. Hundreds of club members wore red ribbons and pledged to lead drug-free lives to honor the sacrifices made by Kiki Camarena and others on behalf of all Americans.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Red Ribbon Week eventually gained momentum throughout California and later the United States. In 1985, club members presented the "Camarena Club Proclamation" to then First Lady Nancy Reagan, bringing it national attention. Later that summer, parent groups in California, Illinois, and Virginia began promoting the wearing of Red Ribbons nationwide during late October. The campaign was then formalized in 1988 by National Family Partnership, with President and Mrs. Reagan serving as honorary chairpersons. Today, the eight-day celebration is sponsored by the National Family Partnership (previously known as the Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth), and has become the annual catalyst to show intolerance for drugs in our schools, work places, and communities. Each year, during the last week in October, more than 80 million young people and adults show their commitment to a healthy, drug-free life by wearing or displaying the Red Ribbon.</span></p> <p><a href="https://www.dea.gov/redribbon/RedRibbon_history.shtml">https://www.dea.gov/redribbon/RedRibbon_history.shtml</a></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> </div> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 14:45:10 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 528 at https://www.icoe.org 17th Annual Regional Migrant Parent Conference https://www.icoe.org/news/17th-annual-regional-migrant-parent-conference <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">17th Annual Regional Migrant Parent Conference</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/rsalgado" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">rsalgado</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 10/11/2017 - 09:53</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-video field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News story video</div> <div class="field__item">https://youtu.be/vzDVDB70CoQ</div> </div> Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:53:11 +0000 rsalgado 525 at https://www.icoe.org ICOEnnections - October 2017 https://www.icoe.org/news/icoennections-october-2017 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">ICOEnnections - October 2017</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-10/Project_Voice_Group_s.PNG" width="493" height="354" alt="Project Voice Group Picture" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/mmezaicoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">mmeza@icoe.org</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 10/10/2017 - 10:44</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Click <a href="https://indd.adobe.com/view/3c648c05-1707-415e-9d02-5594c4954e96">here</a><a href="https://indd.adobe.com/view/3defd0a7-3201-4aa3-ab01-b58c6a6de18f" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"> </a>for our October 2017 edition community edition of the monthly ICOEnnections publication.</p> <p>Stories include:</p> <ul><li>CAASPP Scores Release</li> <li>Classified Employee Grant</li> <li>New Senior Director for ECEP</li> <li>Hurricane Relief Effort at State Preschools</li> <li>Breastfeeding Community Resource Fair</li> <li>Curriculum and Instruction Updates</li> <li>Alternative Education Updates</li> <li>National Bullying Awareness Month</li> <li>Student Well-Being Updates</li> <li>Higher Education Events</li> <li>Migrant Education Updates</li> <li>IVCEC Harvest Carnival Fundraiser</li> <li>IT Training Opportunities</li> <li>Launch of K12HSN's K12 Network Monitoring System</li> <li>ASB and Attendance Compliance Workshops</li> </ul></div> Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:44:59 +0000 mmeza@icoe.org 524 at https://www.icoe.org Overcoming Disabilities - ICOE's Lisa Bracamonte's Story... https://www.icoe.org/news/overcoming-disabilities-icoes-lisa-bracamontes-story <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Overcoming Disabilities - ICOE&#039;s Lisa Bracamonte&#039;s Story...</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-10/Naomi%20Saldana%20%26%20Lisa%20Bracamonte%20small.png" width="376" height="223" alt="Two ladies " typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/toddevangelisticoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="todd.evangelist@icoe.org">todd.evangelis…</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 10/10/2017 - 10:12</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image-caption field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">Supervisor Nohemi Saldana with Lisa Bracamonte</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri"><em>Calexico</em> – An ROP class in child care her senior year of high school was all it took for Lisa Bracamonte to discover her life-long career. Caring for young children and working in preschools has been Lisa’s only job – and she loves it.</font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">Born with Moebius syndrome which is a non-progressive facial and neurological disorder that for Lisa has manifested as a paralysis of the right side of her face. It affects her hearing and vision and prevents her from having facial expressions, but you wouldn’t know it when she walks in a room. Her attitude and can-do-spirit brightens everyone around her.</font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px 72px 0px 48px"><i><span style="font-size:18pt; margin:0px">“I feel like I’m the mayor of every room I walk into,” said Lisa. “… everybody wants to talk to me and give me a hug.”</span></i></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">“I feel like I’m the mayor of every room I walk into,” said Lisa. “When I go to the store or see kids and families around town, everybody wants to talk to me and give me a hug,” said the 12-year employee of ICOE. </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">Lisa started working at ICOE initially with the Migrant Department when they had an infant/toddler program and then transitioned to ICOE’s Early Care and Education Programs (ECEP) four years ago when her supervisor, Nohemi Saldaña, moved to the Calexico site. Lisa followed Nohemi because of how much she enjoyed working with her. </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">Life hasn’t always been easy for Lisa. Her disability prevents her from driving a vehicle, so her daily commute from Brawley to Calexico is all done via public transportation – which Lisa has mastered. In fact, she has become close friends with all the drivers and has their cell phone numbers. One time she was caught in a rare Imperial Valley rainstorm, and she had missed the bus pick up to go back home. She called an off-duty bus driver who drove her from Calexico back to Brawley in his own car. Because she’s that well thought of by IVTAccess, the entity that runs some of the buses Lisa takes, she can count on them for her transportation needs. </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">Lisa also remembers people when she was young being fearful that she wouldn’t graduate from high school, but Lisa proved to herself and others, that she not only graduated from high school but she went on to obtain an AA and AS degree from IVC as well as her Child Development Permit from the State of California. Lisa also has dreams one day to earn her bachelor’s degree as well.</font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">A constant influence in Lisa’s life has been her beloved parish in Brawley. She lives just down the street from St. Margaret Mary church and even has literally been given keys to the church because she’s there so much. “If I miss a service, the priest will call me to check and see if I’m O.K.,” explained Lisa. “When I’m not at church, people tell me that they notice a difference.” </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">That’s probably because Lisa is <i>#ICOEAmazing.</i></font></p> </div> Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:12:34 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 523 at https://www.icoe.org 17th Regional Migrant Parents Conf. https://www.icoe.org/news/17th-regional-migrant-parents-conf <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">17th Regional Migrant Parents Conf.</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-10/dancer-icoe-news.jpg" width="600" height="450" alt="Folklorico Dancers" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/rsalgado" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">rsalgado</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 10/09/2017 - 14:24</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The 17th Annual Regional Migrant Parent Conference was a resounding this success!
