Motivational speaker and professor Leo Buscaglia said, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Attendance Clerk Irma Gomez is a hardworking member of Carlmont’s administration whose positivity and work is appreciated by many.

Health Aid Samantha Gingher said, “She is the most kind, compassionate, hardworking, laid-back, willing-to-help person I know. She works endless hours to ensure her job is taken care of, and that everyone is happy.”

A typical day of Gomez  consists of coming to school early in the morning to check voice mail and emails, clear all of the tardy students, give passes to students, and much more.

However, her work does not stop there. In addition to taking care of all of the attendance business, Gomez is also an important asset to the English Learner Advisory Committee.

Instructional Vice Principal Jennifer Cho said,”Ms. Gomez’s bilingual skills make her so valuable. Also, her physical location in the office makes her a face of Carlmont, and she is always friendly and welcoming.” 

Along with organizing absences and tardies, Gomez also puts it to herself to be accommodating to each student’s unique needs.

Senior Gabi Dimick said, “When I had health issues freshman year, she was always sweet and helpful. In fact, she was always beyond thoughtful and understanding.”

As many of Carlmont students and parents speak Spanish, Gomez is always on top of translating to ensure that the language difference is not a barrier in communication.

Gomez is a dynamic part of the office, and her work for the school is definitely appreciated by many.
