When people first enter St.Charles High they are provided with a warm welcome and a cheerful smile. This greeting is provided by Sarah Schiffer, the attendance secretary. It is a smile many may recognize from her previous place of work Hardin Middle School. Despite being in a new location, not too many things have changed.
“The biggest difference is that they hold the kids a little more responsible here,” Schiffer said. “We go to the students more than the parents.”
Schiffer has been thoroughly enjoying her position.
COVID-19 has provided some unique challenges, but Schiffer has embraced the new changes.
“I’ve been getting to know the virtual kids and I wouldn’t if I was in any other position.”
Though often found behind the attendance desk, Schiffer enjoys a multitude of activities outside of work.
“I like to camp and I love dogs, so camping with my dogs and kids is probably our favorite thing to do.”
