Office and Administrative Staff

Jen Gonzales

Business Office

 

How exciting ­­– this is Heritage’s 51st year! My name is Jen Gonzales and I work in the Heritage Business Office. Over the last 12 years I have served in Christian schools. While my duties at Heritage range from helping students in the front office to assisting staff with different needs, my primary responsibility is to provide support for you with your student account. Whenever you have a question, feel free to call me using my direct line (661-871-4761). If you would like to adjust your account in any way or make a payment, stop by the Heritage Business Office window between 7:30am and 3:30pm and I (along with Irma Medina) will be happy to help you. If you need any other support with your student account, please email me at jgonzales@hacademy.org and I will respond as soon as possible.

In addition to my work in the Heritage Business Office, I am Treasurer of the Parent Support Group (PSG) and That’s Amoré Chair. I also have the fun honor of being Cheer Coach again. Last year was a great start to growing cheer. I look forward to our scheduled performance at the Condors game and the Knott’s Berry Farm Jamz! As I reflect on last year, God was so evident in my life and I found myself holding on to the anchor of hope I have in him. My husband (known as Mr. Mike around campus) and I were blessed with a son, who we named Matthias. His name means gift of God and that is exactly what he is. We look forward to finalizing his adoption this year. We also have two wonderful daughters who attend Heritage, Bella, who is in 7th grade this school year and, Klarisa, who is in 3rd grade. From one Heritage parent to another, please know that I am here to serve you, your student(s) and I pray for God’s blessing upon your lives!

Hello Heritage family, my name is Irma Medina (formerly Garcia – I got married last school year!). I invite you to come by the Heritage Business Office so I can meet you. I started at Heritage three years ago and it has been quite a journey. I remember praying and hoping during the summer of 2014 that God would allow me to be in a place where I can serve Him and invest in the lives of students. Heritage has become my second family, standing alongside me to celebrate my successes and pray with me during my times of need.

My journey began as a Heritage Aide, keeping students safe on the playground and equipping them for life circumstances. In the same year, I also interned in the Heritage Business Office assisting Jen Gonzales with daily tasks so I could grow vocationally and serve families directly. Last school year I continued working in the Heritage Business Office and I became the Afterschool Program Coordinator and Junior High Spanish Elective Teacher. This school year I will be teaching Spanish again at the Junior High and I have the opportunity to be in the Business Office full-time, which means I will be more available to answer questions pertaining to your student account and assist you with adjustments/payments.

I am excited to start the 2017-2018 school year with our theme GROWING IN WISDOM! This theme will be a good challenge for all staff and students to not only have knowledge of God’s word but to also practice it in our daily lives. My prayer for this school year is to serve you with love, compassion, and make this year memorable!

Administrative Assistant

 

When I started last year at Heritage I had no idea how God would bless me. Students welcomed me to their school with smiles and laughter. Parents encouraged me throughout the school year and helped me learn the ropes. Staff offered me grace in my mistakes and gratitude in my victories. As a new school year begins I am confident that God has placed me right where He desires me to serve. There will be new responsibilities along with my existing ones. I still get to oversee and manage our online student information system, RenWeb, so if you’re having any difficulties give me a call! I am also excited because this year I get to help with student activities. I will be the one to ensure you get notifications in a timely manner about awards and I look forward to celebrating the academic achievements of your child. I will also be coordinating field trips and our incentive programs. Your child’s backpack is going to be extra bright and colorful over the next few months as fliers go home about everything from Picture Day to Awards Assemblies. God has amazing things in store for us in the 50th year of Heritage Christian Schools and I am so glad I get to share it with you!

Welcome back to another amazing school year! I am so excited to work alongside you, for your students, and to assist you by answering all of your questions!  This is my second year working at Heritage and I love it!  When I started working last year, as an aide, I had no idea where God would be leading me!  It’s amazing to see God work through this school and these kids.  Because of working at the front desk, I am able to interact with many of the parents and students and am so blessed that my position allows for that!  As an alumni of Heritage, it is so exciting to be on the flip side of things and work for a school that impacted me while growing up! I love this school.  I love your students.  And I can’t wait to see what God will do through this next school year.
