Galveston ISD is proud to announce February’s E3 Employee of the Month, Transportation Dispatcher Angie Imerito.
Imerito is a 2000 Ball High School graduate who moved to the island when she was 15 years old. She started working for Galveston ISD as an aide in February 2018 before moving into her current role.
Imerito has many responsibilities in her role as dispatcher, including answering radio traffic from drivers and dispatching them information regarding stops and students. She manages the bus routes, including updating, adding and deleting students from specific routes. She also handles all the phone calls from parents and campuses.
“My favorite part of working for Galveston ISD is just the comradery that we all have in the department,” explains Imerito. “Each day is different but we always come together as a team.”
In her free time, Imerito is heavily involved in her church and enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and their two doxiepoos Otis and Roscoe.
Imerito has been nominated multiple times since the Galveston ISD E3 Employee of the Month campaign began. Below are descriptions of why Imerito’s nominators chose her for E3 Employee of the Month:
“Ms. Imerito is an important team member in Transportation. She comes to work early to ensure all routes are covered and the drivers have the necessary paperwork for student pick ups. She is available to answer the phones and provides important information to the parents and often the drivers. Her work at times is difficult when she is unable to help a caller or when they don't get the response they want. She has been trained to help the Routing Specialist and works daily with drivers to make route adjustments.”
“On top of dispatching, she has taken on the roll of all COVID-19 cases within our department. She also handles routing and state roll call.”
“Angie goes above and beyond to help parents and staff with transportation questions. She is not always appreciated and is often spoken to very rudely when parents are upset. She is an asset to our department and an important piece of our puzzle in transportation.”
“She deals with the daily task of making sure drivers have their correct routes, making sure parents are aware of their students’ bus info, helping parents and district staff with any and all issues. She also handles the routing and state roll call numbers along with answering the phone and radio (sometimes at the same time).”
“She has the daily task of working with drivers and parents to make sure the students are safely transported to school. She has the tough job of answering the phones, the radio and routing.”
