Staffing coordinator Wendi Rodriguez is the mastermind behind keeping Santa Fe High classes staffed. 

Wendi joined the Demon community in September of 2022. Her job consists of finding substitutes for teachers who are absent through a program called Frontline. To do this, she reaches out to potentially available substitutes to see if they are available. She also tries to get classes covered by reaching out to SFHS teachers to sell their prep periods to sub.

Wendi says she enjoys her job. “I really like it,” she said. “I think the staff, students, and teachers are super friendly.”

She stated her favorite part of her job is “talking to all the kids and people who work at Santa Fe High. There are tons of people here, so it’s neat to get to socialize and meet new people.” 

Wendi attended the Santa Fe Community College, where she earned an associate’s degree in general studies. She always knew she wanted to work for the public schools, as she has three kids of her own in SFPS, so when she heard about the job, she was definitely interested. She claims this job works perfectly with her family’s schedule. 

Although Wendi is originally from Santa Fe, she did live in Albuquerque for about seven years. She decided to come back to her hometown because she feels it’s safer and to be closer to family. 

Outside of work, Wendi enjoys attending her kids’ basketball games and spending time with family.
