After 8 years on our team, we say farewell and thank you to Elvia Esparza. Elvia will be missed, but we wish her the best of luck in her new position with Tahoe Truckee Unified School District.
We welcome Mayra Islas as our Reception & Outreach Assistant. Native to Truckee, Mayra is happy to be back in her home town after several years attending Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, where she received Associate of Arts degrees in Arts and Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Spanish. While attending school there she worked as a math tutor with returning adult students and learned that therein lay her passion for teaching and peer engagement. She later worked as an Assistant Activities Director at an assisted living home, where a desire to pursue a career in psychology was awakened. Mayra was active in campus ministry at the Newman Catholic Center for Cal Poly and Cuesta College. This involvement solidified her Christian faith and reinforced her dedication to service and compassion. Mayra is happy to be back with her family in her hometown, where she is excited to see Truckee flourishing as a colorful and dynamic community. Mayra has told us, “I am delighted to be part of the FRCoT team and eager to learn and share my talents with the rest of the staff.”
