A Thankful Farewell to Joanne Vitalich – A Legacy of Love & AdvocacyDecember 21st, 2012 by Rich Jacobson
Joanne Vitalich Retires from CKSD
December 21, 2012 signals the end to a lifetime of dedication and faithful service to our children and community. After 34 years of employment as a para-educator, specializing in Special Ed within the Central Kitsap School District, Joanne Vitalich is retiring.
Joanne’s career can best be characterized as one who has been a fierce and tireless advocate for her students. She is also known for her tremendous capacity of endearing, genuine love for her students, often winning the hearts of even the most challenging or hardened cases.
Her dry, sassy humor will be sorely missed by staff and students alike. No doubt hundreds, if not thousands, of young lives have been positively impacted by the wonderful contributions made by Joanne over all these years.
Thank you, Joanne! You will be sorely missed!…
