Leanne Burt - Library Aide

Burt, Leanne.jpg

     I am so excited to be working in the Vassiliadis school library, especially with brand new books!  I love to read and am looking forward to assisting students and faculty find what they need in the library.

     I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, and graduated from Snow College with my Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Systems.  I worked as a computer operator and then programmer for about 15 years.  I loved my career; but when my children came, I chose to be a stay-at-home mom.  I am married to Alan, who is a wonderful husband and father.  We have two beautiful girls; Kaylee, who is currently attending BYU and studying to be a Social Worker and hoping to work with youth and children; and Kimberly, who is a sophomore at Palo Verde High School.

     My husband’s job brought us to Las Vegas when our girls were young.  When our youngest was in First Grade at Bonner, I had the privilege of working as a Teacher’s Aide at the same school – and eventually with Mr. Catania.  I have worked at Bonner for 11 years, and look forward to continuing another amazing year with Mr. Catania, and all the other fantastic faculty, students, parents, and staff.

Sally Ramirez - Special Program Teaching Assistant

Ramirez, Sally.jpg

​     Hello, my name is Sally  Ramirez and I have been with the Clark County School District for 11 years.  My initial experience with CCSD was working with a high school program called Mommy and Me, where I mentored teenage mothers and provided daycare for their children while they attended to their education.  For the past 9 years, I have been a teaching assistant to special education teachers specializing in autism.

      I was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and graduated from  Alta Loma High School.  I have been married for 37 years to my husband, Henry and we have two children and 6 grandchildren.  During the early years of our marriage, my husband was in the military and I was a stay at home mom; but I have always babysat for friends and family member's children.  After my stint as a stay at home mom, I finally joined the workforce at a daycare for and spent 7 years there.

     Very early on in my life I knew my calling was to provide education and nurturing to children.  To see each and every one of those kids that I have interacted with and continue to interact is the biggest blessing in my life.  To know that I can make a difference in their lives just by being present and devoting my time and energy to their needs is very rewarding to me.

Quillicy, Cristina.jpg

     Hi my name is Cristina Quillicy.  I’m originally from Southern California.  My husband and I moved to Las Vegas in 1998 and never looked back. We have three grown children. Now that we are practically empty nesters we spend time traveling, cooking, trying new restaurants, hanging out with our friends and walking our little rascal terrier Katie,. I subbed for 7 seven years for CCSD as a teacher’s assistant.  During that time, I fell in love with the Early Childhood Program. I was blessed to be given the opportunity to work with these awesome little kiddos and to call Vassiliadis my home.

 Heather Stuart - PE Assistant

Stuart, Heather.jpg
     My name is Heather Stuart and I am the Intermediate Resource Instructional Assistant to Ms. Stratton. Last year was my first with the Clark County School District and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Vassiliadis family. Before gaining my Cub pride, I was a manager at the Golden Entertainment Group for almost ten years. During that time I never enjoyed going to work as much as I do now. I love working with children and watching them grow and succeed is the most rewarding feeling. I am engaged to my best friend and we have two awesome children, Max (13) and Ebin (5).  We spend a lot of our time outdoors hiking, camping, going to the lake and playing baseball. I feel so fortunate to not only be at a 5 Star school but to work amongst the best staff, students, and parents. Go Cubs!!
