Rosemarie Quintana, Navajo ES

The most recognizable face of Navajo Elementary is retiring – Rosemarie Quintana! The stupendous secretary has served Navajo Elementary faithfully for the past 36 years. Rosemarie has a great eye for detail, her organizational skills are phenomenal, and her commitment to the South Valley community is priceless – these are only a few of the great skills that will be make her shoes extremely difficult to fill.

In all of the 36 years in APS Rosemarie stayed committed to the Navajo Elementary School family. She started out working in the classrooms for a few years. Learning the knack of children, in both the general education and special education classrooms. She found herself ready to help everybody navigate through the school and she moved into the first face you see, clerk. She worked hard and diligent for ten years to greet and welcome every student, parent, staff, guest, and community member that entered Navajo. Her work paid off and she was promoted to secretary. For 22 years she has managed the books, scheduled appointments, communicated to the community, assisted with registration, and the list continues. The time has come for her to leave the pen refill orders for someone new and take some time for her.

As Rosemarie learns to schedule for herself, instead of others, one of the first things on her schedule will be to learn to play the piano. Her lessons will have to be scheduled according to her visits to Colorado to see her children & grandchildren and the “Honey-Do” list of multiple projects she has been preparing for her and her husband to work on together.

Navajo Staff would like to invite all of her colleagues, friends, and family to celebrate her joint retirement on May 14 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the cafeteria: 2936 Hughes Road S.W.
