20 Questions in 2 Minutes
20 Questions in 2 Minutes is our blog series in which we get to know Beaverton School District staff members.
Kandra Luna, Attendance Secretary and coach for Water Polo and Softball at Aloha High School. Currently I am a student teacher at Sunset High School (January- April) and at Five Oaks Middle School (April-June). Formerly, I was the Attendance Office at Aloha High School. I was one of the first points of contact for the students in the morning, and I always make sure that I welcomed the students coming to school late. I did this because I want them to know that we are happy they came to school and want them to be here. Within this role, I am constantly busy, answering phones, excusing students, sending passes and creating a welcoming environment to all. As a coach, I am helping students develop, maintain and hone in on their sport of choice. I want the athletes to develop their confidence and learn how to work with a team. I am excited to student teach at Sunset High for health and at Five Oaks Middle School and my future as an educator.
Student Spotlights highlight some of our students who are working hard on progressing in their learning, challenging themselves, and/or overcoming obstacles. These students are recommended by their teachers.
