Staff Spotlight: Chandler Pratt

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 Southgate Elementary School paraprofessional Chandler Pratt.

"[Chandler] makes positive experiences for the youngest students before their day even begins by transporting them safely to school, works with them in the classroom setting, and then makes the final moments great by transporting them home each and every day. He truly cares and loves the students he assists every day and they care and love him!"
