Ms. Cecilia Ramirez

Secretary/Registrar
 
Hello!

My name is Cecilia Ramirez and I have been fortunate to be a part of the Gridley Unified Schools family for the last 13 years!  I spent my first 3 years as the attendance clerk at Gridley High and then I was lucky to transfer to Alternative Education in January of 2008. 

Along with the usual tasks required of my job title, I also have a variety of responsibilities at Gridley Alternative Education.  My favorite, however, is getting to know our students, being a part of their journey towards graduation, and onto adulthood!  

I am bilingual (English/Spanish) and am proactive in the support of our students and their families. I invite you to email, call or drop in anytime so I can share with you what makes our Esperanza or Independent programs unique!
