A little over three years ago Jennifer Flory came to Orcutt Academy, and she has been a great addition to the staff. I interviewed Ms. Flory, and got to hear about what the well-liked front office secretary likes about Orcutt Academy and what she’s doing here.


The first question I asked Ms. Flory was what she actually does here at the school. She said, “I answer the phones, I greet everybody who comes in, and I do the attendance. So when people are absent, I’m the one who answers the phone from the parents.” Another thing people might not know is that she gets to be school nurse sometimes too.


When I asked Flory what her favorite part of the job is, she said she loves that she gets to meet so many new people every day, and gets to interact with the students every day.


I also asked her TAs some questions about Ms. Flory to get a better understanding of who she is. They said that their favorite thing about her is that she’s always really positive. They also said that when they come in the office she always has a smile on her face, and that she is very polite and helpful.


After this interview we know that the job Jennifer Flory does is a very important one. To be positive and helpful is something we all need to be; therefore, if you need a little bit happier or just need a smile, take a walk to the front office.
