HR assistant has been helping hire district staff for 15 years

Claudette Bean

Claudette Bean describes herself as a “people person,” so it’s small wonder that she enjoys her job as a Human Resources assistant.

Bean has been helping HISD fill its staffing needs since 1998, first in the Associate Teacher department and later in Teacher Certification. Now she helps fill non-instructional positions, and over the years, she estimates she has probably met thousands of people.

“I enjoy every moment of it,” she said. “I love it.”

Bean marked her official anniversary with the district on June 16, but several other employees are also marking theirs this week (June 16–22). See if you know anyone on this list:

10 years

  • Scott Houston, teacher Lamar HS   
  • Nakesa Lawrence, DDC Controls Admin, Construction & Facility Services  

5 years

  • Anthony Hamm, mechanic, Transportation Services
  • Naushia Swearington, clerk, Food Services
  • Angelique Villarreal, clerk, J. P. Henderson ES                     
Check back next Friday for more June Milestones. Leave a comment below if you’d like to congratulate any of the above employees.

    I would like to start off by saying “WELL DONE” you really do deserve this recognition and as for the expression people person this is a under statement, that you are it shows when people not only acknowledge your job (the service you perform) but individual know you as a person.Words can”t describe the service you have performed and still doing so now so once again “WELL DONE” BEAN-BEAN!HAT”S OFF TO YOU.
