Welcome to the Front Office at Shepherd Junior High.  Home of the Stallions!

Good attendance is directly related to your student's achievement and success here at Shepherd!  I will be happy to address all of your student's attendance concerns so that we can become partners in ensuring a quality education.

Attendance and Tardy Program:  Every Period, Every School Day Matters at Shepherd Junior High School

As always, I'll be ready to greet you with a smile when you arrive with your student and get them to the right class at the right time. Whether you're dropping off an important homework assignment or a forgotten lunch or you're picking up an ill student, I promise to assist you efficiently and promptly.

I have worked for Mesa Public Schools as an Alternative Learning Instructor and 8th grade science teacher.  I find my position as Office Specialist extremely rewarding especially when my service to you and your student results in academic success.
