Meet Transition Specialist Angelica Esquivel!

Angelica Esquivel
Spring 2017 Schedule for Transition Specialists

Have you met our new transition specialist, Angelica?  

We have two transition specialists - college and career navigators - to help you:  Patty and Angelica. 

Patty works mostly in the daytime.  Angelica works mostly in the evening.  Their office is in Room 28, near the flagpole.  They share their office with Toshio, our CASAS clerk and school musician.

Angelica has a quick smile and is very committed to serving the community.  She knows about many resources to help students meet their goals and find solutions to their problems.  And she can help  in two languages:  English and Spanish. 

Stop by Room 29 to meet her or email her at to make an appointment to meet with her.  Her schedule is Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 9 pm.  And she is here on some Fridays in the daytime.
