My name is Alexandra Guzman and I am the District Compliance Coordinator/ Pupil Accountant for WAY Program. I grew up in Southwest Detroit and attended Wayne State University. I have worked in schools for around 13 years. Throughout these years I have worked in many positions; as a Special Education aide, Bilingual Paraprofessional, Office Assistant, Parent/Community Liaison, Office Manager, School Accounting, Payroll and Pupil Accountant. I started working at WAY Academy in Southwest Detroit as an Administrative Assistant in 2018. Within all of the different positions I have held I have really enjoyed working with both students and parents but most importantly the community of Southwest Detroit. It was difficult for me to move positions because I had a special place in my heart when it came to working with both the parents and students from the community. I now work at a district level because it was a better fit for my family but I do try to stay involved with the community.
