Managing schedules, translating documents, providing vital communications, and maintaining organization are just a few of the crucial duties performed by Marshalltown Schools’ team of administrative professionals.
That group of employees, including administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals are celebrated during National Administrative Professionals’ Day, which falls on Wednesday, April 22 this year. Administrative professionals are at the heart of MCSD’s mission to ensure student success.
MCSD administrative professionals take their work seriously and enjoy playing a key role keeping the district running smoothly day-to-day.
“I love that I get to interact daily with every single one of our students (before COVID-19). I love that all of the MLA staff strives to make sure everyday that every student knows that we are glad they made the choice to come to school, that we care about them as a person, and are always willing to listen or direct them to the right person to talk to.”
– Muriel Bryant, Marshalltown Learning Academy Administrative Assistant
“I love what I do at Miller. Helping parents and staff to communicate effectively with each other is very rewarding as a bilingual secretary.”
– Maritza Parra, Miller Middle School Bilingual Administrative Assistant
