This year, attendance data technician Ms. Brandy Mesa is moving on from La Quinta High to begin work as a discipline secretary at Palm Desert High.
During her time at LQHS, Mesa helped keep track of student attendance all throughout the day, keeping track of students’ whereabouts, and making sure attendance records are accurate. Mesa loved working with the staff and is grateful for the work relationships she has developed.
“The staff here is amazing,” she said. “I’ve created a great and awesome work relationship with all the teachers on campus, we have a great understanding of each other.”
Mesa loves the school spirit shown at La Quinta, mentioning how she loved the energy of the students at sports games. “The spirit here just can’t be beaten,” she added.
She is incredibly thankful for all the cards and notes she has received from students, which she says help her realize the impact she has had while at La Quinta.
At PDHS, she will be working with the security team and the assistant principal to interact directly with kids who exhibit disciplinary issues. She is excited to be able to help students who need the extra support and looks forward to the next chapter in her life.
“Sometimes you don’t know how good you have it until you leave, but you have to do what you need to do to grow,” Mesa said.
