Dora Frausto

Administrative Assistant

I have worked for Santa Paula Unified since 2009. Since then, I have worked at various schools throughout the district and was the ASPIRE office assistant before coming to Renaissance High school. 

I have been part of the Renaissance High School family for two years and am beginning my third year as the Administrative Assistant.

On my time off from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my daughter Nat and my son Cristian. I am very family oriented, and spend as much time as I can with my parents as well. I grew up in Santa Paula and have lived here since 1996.

Hello students and families! My name is Angela Bautista, and I'm the school counselor for Independent Study. I have experience working with students ranging from K-12 to first-generation college students. I started my school counseling career in Denver, CO, but I was born and raised in Santa Paula. I am excited to be back and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the community that helped educate me. I enjoy working collaboratively with parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators to identify barriers to learning and develop strategies to better support students and their needs. I am passionate about eliminating barriers, providing equitable support, creating a safe and positive environment, and assisting students in discovering who they are by engaging in meaningful career conversations and providing social and emotional support. I take pride in building relationships with students to ensure that I care not only about their academic performance but also about them as a person. I believe everyone is unique and deserves that chance to live up to their potential. I aim to provide equal opportunity and support to guide students through academic, social, and personal growth, using creativity and empathy to increase their readiness for learning and future success.

In May of 2012, I graduated with my A.A. in General Education from Ventura College. I then transferred to California State University, Chico, and graduated with my B.A. in Sociology and a Minor in Child Development in May 2015. Finally, in December 2019, I received my Master's degree in Counseling and Career Development with an Emphasis in School Counseling from Colorado State University, Fort Collins. 

Fun Fact:

I tried out for the UCA All-Star Cheer Team during my senior year of high school. Those who make the team have an opportunity to go to London and perform in the Varsity Spirit Parade during New Year's. I made the team, and my family helped me fundraise money to go to London and perform in the New Year's Parade.

When I am not working, you can find me hiking, exploring national parks/monuments, or spending time with my dog.
