Hart High School’s very own, Cynthia Ramirez, has recently been promoted to her new position as office manager. 

Ramirez attended Knight high school, where she became a part of student service, for the attendance office. Since she is bilingual, in both Spanish and English, and assisted with off campus passes and translations. 

“I also helped the SRO, which is our school resource officer, I used to help her do summonses, and when I was younger they used to actually do truancy tickets, which if you were absent or tardy too much, the officer on site would give them and would give me a summons or give me a name of her student and I would go and take them into her office.” said Ramirez. 

Ramirez attended a community college, Antelope Valley College, and received her AA in business administration. She then transferred to California State University Bakersfield where she got her bachelor’s degree in accounting. 

In 2009, Ramirez began working at Hart as a bilingual instructional assistant and has been working at Hart for nearly 14 years. She later transferred to a position as an instructional assistant with a special education program where she aided in the classroom, especially in math. She also became an assistant principal secretary, where she helped with athletics and discipline. 

As an office manager, Ramirez manages and deals with the school’s budgets and checks in with the other offices, keeping them organized and on track. She deals and schedules appointments needed with Mr. D’autremont or the other assistant principals. She manages purchases needed throughout the school, whether its supplies, buses, fields needed. 

Though Ramirez is excited for what is to come in her new positions, she feels that she misses seeing the students as often as she did as the assistant principal secretary. Ramirez enjoys having an overall view of everything 

“I think it’s more to do with accounts, organization with money, things with payroll, ” Ramirez said.

“How do you eat an elephant, one bite at a time, because sometimes we look at things and we get overwhelmed, especially you know when I was young, you look at things and think I’m not even gonna try or its too large or it’s gonna take too long because time will pass anyways, time is gonna pass, one bite a time and you’ll get there.” Ramirez advises all students who might be overwhelmed by current events taking place around them.
