WALNUT, CA--The Board of Trustees approved Erin Ortiz as Program Specialist-Special Education during the September 19 meeting.


Ortiz has been a familiar face around Walnut Valley schools for the past 17 years.


She served as an education support specialist for the past two years and has been a special education teacher at C.J. Morris Elementary, Walnut Elementary, and Chaparral Middle School. 


Ortiz was also a third-grade teacher at C.J. Morris Elementary for four years.


Prior to that, she was an elementary teacher at the Holy Name of Mary School in the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
