Shelly Hadley took over as Finance Technician after Carolyn Madderra stepped down from her position to work at the Acalanes Center for Independent Study (ACIS) earlier this year. Hadley said that adjusting  to this position in the middle of the year has been somewhat challenging, but “everyone’s help has made it easier,” she said.

Carolyn Daughton, the Principal’s Administrative Assistant, said that Hadley caught on incredibly fast. Daughton added that she could not have wished for anyone better to fill the role.

As the Finance Technician, Hadley is in charge of all of the Associate Student Body (ASB) accounts, including student body finances, district funding, and accounting. “I process all the money that comes in and out of the school,” she said.

Hadley was trained by other Finance Technicians in the district. Her tasks vary from day to day, but she has been specifically working on the webstore and accomplishing more financial tasks online.

Daughton believes that Hadley has adjusted extremely well to the school environment. “She is a great team player and really brightens up our corner of the office,” she said. Daughton explained that Hadley brought holiday cheer to the office with winter decorations such as icicles and garlands.

According to Daughton, Hadley shares the duty of greeting students, parents and other campus visitors when they come to the front counter. Daughton said Hadley makes everyone feel welcome and also acts as a backup for Daughton and is always willing to help with any tasks, such as pulling keys for subs.

Prior to joining the Campo staff, Hadley worked as an accounting manager at East County Glass and Window for 24 years. Hadley explained that Campo was an opportunity to go in a different direction and do something new.

Hadley believes that working with both kids and adults is not that much different than working solely with adults. “I love it,” she added.
