Hello, my name is Mariana Ramirez. I am the Office Administrator at the Pico campus. This will be my third year working at New West. I am honored to see the 6th-grade class I started with is now starting their freshman year at the HS. I am thrilled to see the returning families who have enrolled a younger sibling at New West for the 22-23 school year.
I was born and raised in North East LA. I went to my local public LAUSD schools in my neighborhood. I furthered my education and earned a B.A. in Communication Studies: Public Relations in 2015 from California State University, Sacramento. Ironically, I never have pursued a career in PR. Instead, my professional career has been embedded in education for the last 10 years.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my sisters and brother. I find a great deal of enjoyment in working out and staying active. I am a big sports fan. (Football and Baseball). Actually... I am pleased to announce that I will be coaching the New West Volleyball Girls Team this year.
Each and every day at New West is a joy. I continuously learn from our students. I laugh and enjoy the school day with students and colleagues. I work alongside administration to create a fun and safe learning environment at our school. There is not one dull moment here. It is truly a pleasure to serve the New West community. If you see me outside doing carpool, do not be shy to say hello. 😀
Cheers to the new school year!
