STAFF SPOTLIGHT: ADILENE PLIEGO

Her Title:

Admissions Lower School Coordinator

What does she do?

Ady gets to walk families through the Admissions process, and share the mission and vision of Hope Academy. She also gets to listen to families’ stories, pray with them, and share about the wonderful opportunity that Hope Academy offers!

Favorite Memory:

“It must be Home Visits! During my last in-person home visit, both teachers visiting our home brought along pictures of themselves of when they were kids/ teens. It was a moment of connections, of sharing, laughter, and vulnerability. I appreciated that so much!”

Years at Hope:

She’s going into her 6th year at Hope Academy!

Any advice for our parents?

“Persevere, persevere, persevere! Hold on to the rock, your strong tower! The rain will come, the streams will rise, and the wind may beat against you, yet you will not fall because you are founded on the rock!”

Fun Facts:

  1. She has a geographic tongue.
  2. She likes to put lime and salt on everything.
  3. She is a young grandma and has a 4-year-old grandson!
  4. This past summer she was able to visit her family’s hometown of Tlalayo, Morelos in Mexico for the first time in 17 years!

Thank you Mrs. Pliego for your joy-filled spirit and the way you serve our families! You balance so many tasks with grace and excellence. It’s hard to leave a conversation with you and not feel more peaceful and loved! Thank you for all you do for our Hope Academy community! Keep being you and shining for Jesus!
