Why Mountain People Love Working Here

I have the best job in the whole world and I’ve had it for 34 years! I get to spend six hours a day with kids and witness their learning and growth right before my eyes. I love seeing the light in their eyes and it’s such a wonderful feeling to build connections with students and watch them blossom and become amazing people. I’m getting paid to do something that I so love to do! Anna Davis - Second Grade Teacher Truckee Elementary


I really like working here. It feels good to be doing something positive for the kids, the teachers, and the school. We have really good people at TTUSD and everyone is so friendly. I take great pride in my work and always want to do my best. I have been here for 15 years and wish I had come to work here sooner! Jesus Soto - Custodian Sierra High School and Donner Trail


What I love about my job is being around kids. I enjoy making them feel as special as they make me feel. I love to see them smile. Working with them helps me understand each of their personalities, and I encourage them to follow their dreams. Our students help make me a better person in general and a better mom.
