Fabiola Resendiz-Castillo Keeps School Running Smoothly as Office Assistant
Fabiola Resendiz-Castillo 2023 CSEY nominee


As an office assistant at the JCCS Youth Transition Center, Fabiola Resendiz-Castillo handles a lot at the school, including supporting staff members, helping visitors, and even providing translation services during student-led conferences. 

“Fabiola is an organizational genius,” said Ellen De La Cruz, the teacher at the school who nominated her for the 2023 SDCOE Classified School Employee of the Year award. “She takes the ‘dys’ out of dysfunction and makes us function! Our school office is cheerful and calming because of her efforts.”

Resendiz-Castillo work includes orienting new staff, keeping track of substitutes and absences, helping with calendar changes for staff, letting visitors know the process for visiting a secure facility, greeting visitors, providing teachers with classroom and safety materials, keeping the staff areas clean and safe, keeping track of truck mail, and handling classroom moves and transitions. She does it all with grace and efficiency, De La Cruz said.

She also serves as a translator for student-led conferences and other events as well as being a vital member of the school’s safety committee.

“She is our YTC superhero,” De La Cruz said.
