#DynamicDragons: Sharon Olivas
#DynamicDragons: Sharon Olivas
District Communications Office
Friday, March 30, 2018

Sharon Olivas is the administrative assistant at Lakeside and the first face you see as you enter the school.  Her contagious smile and upbeat attitude is a shining example of our commitment to customer service and the care we give our students and the families of USD 250. She is truly one of our #DynamicDragons. She has been part of the Dragon family for three years.

Before coming to Pittsburg Community Schools, Sharon worked in insurance and also as a secretary in another school district.

"I kept hearing about the supportive staff and administration. This position came open at the right time in my life, so I applied.  It is true, Pittsburg is a very supportive school district.  I remember walking in and feeling at home. I was scared the first year and had taken on a lot of responsibility. You're not going to fail; they aren't going to let you. That is amazing to me. You don't find that often."

"I enjoy being up here. It's always busy, going from one project to the next, but that also makes it fun for me."

"I love all the students. It is so different from dealing with older students. The way little kids think, say and do just remind you that life is precious. Their view is so simple and hilarious. Sometimes, I find what they are talking about is not what I think they are talking about because I'm not seeing it through little kid eyes. I love that!"
