Faubion Elementary Receptionist Clarissa Ramirez is the Leander ISD Staff Spotlight of the Week.

Clarissa is the first face that most people see when they arrive at Faubion Elementary, and she greets every student, staff member and guest with kindness and a smile. She makes it a point to know every child and their parents by their name.

“Clarissa has a heart of gold who goes above and beyond to help anyone in whatever capacity needed and does it with a smile on her face,” Nurse Lucy Villarreal said. “She is amazing and we are so lucky to have her here at Faubion!”

Principal Stacie Cordell said that Clarissa’s calm demeanor and innovative thinking help her to continually improve systems and keep the campus running smoothly.

Administrative Assistant Deanna Smarr said that Clarissa’s warmth makes Faubion a better school.

“Clarissa has the biggest heart and a caring personality,” Smarr said. “She makes the office environment better, makes work life better and we are blessed to have her here.”
