Meet some of our support professionals

Marco Flores

Where are you from?
I was born in Mexico. I have lived in Vegas for 15 years and in the U.S. for more than half my life.

What is your current job?
Skilled Trades Assistant with the HVAC Dept.

What do you love about CCSD?
I love CCSD because it is a professional friendly environment.

What’s a fun fact about you?
Working for the maintenance department with CCSD involves a lot of hard work, but it also has a few fun factors. I travel from school to school and site to site. I see lots of different faces and meet lots of different people every day. Also the scenery is different when you see it from the roofs of different buildings.

Describe your job
My job is a different adventures every day. We service hundreds of HVAC units in various schools and professional buildings throughout the entire Las Vegas area. It is a rewarding job. Las Vegas’ weather is one of extreme temperatures. Most times, it is either too hot or too cold. My job is to keep our students, teachers, support staff and paraprofessionals in a comfortable temperature setting inside our CCSD buildings. It is a rewarding feeling to know that by maintaining our A/C systems I help students and CCSD personnel accomplish their duties inside our school and buildings.

How does CCSD support your growth?
CCSD supports my growth by allowing me to put the skills I learned in school into practice in real life situations. Being a skilled trades assistant allows me to learn while working geared towards my goal to become an HVAC Technician. CCSD hired me right after graduating from trade school and that helps me grow as a person with my family and as a professional with CCSD.

What is your current job?

What do you love about CCSD?
I love CCSD for many reasons. I feel like my job is very rewarding. Feeding the kids and sending them off with a full stomach is a good feeling. Another thing I love is having the same schedule as my own kids that attend CCSD.  I get to spend all my free time with them.

What’s a fun fact about you?
I am obsessed with the Care Bears (80’s baby). 

Describe your job
Although it can be a little stressful, it’s also exciting. But the best word to describe my job would be fulfilling. When a student says to me “thank you for the lunch, it was delicious” it truly warms my heart.

How does CCSD support your growth?
CCSD has always supported my growth. I started as a temp worker, but with an awesome supervisor and Regional Supe that saw potential in me. I quickly moved up and run my beautiful kitchen at Dr. Beverly Mathis E.S.
