Staff Spotlight: Josh Rubio

At Austin Public Schools, our mission is to inspire, empower, and accelerate every one of our learners, and we know that the only way for us to reach this goal is through the efforts of all our incredibly hard-working staff.  

In this week’s Staff Spotlight, we’re highlighting Oakland Education Center Mental Health Practitioner Josh Rubio.

"Josh is one of the easiest people to work with and one of the most liked staff by all students. The amount of empathy and patience that he demonstrates on a daily basis is effortless and radiating. He goes above and beyond to ensure everyone around him is doing alright. He is loved and genuinely appreciated."
