Lupe Simpson is caught in the vortex of a middle-school frenzy: Hyper teen-agers encircle her as she escorts a visitor across campus. "Miss Simpson! Miss Simpson!" they shout. One of them reaches for an embrace. Others grab her arm, wanting equal time. The visitor will just have to wait. At Nimitz Middle School, kids always come first.

Having served the Los Angeles Unified School District in many capacities for 20 years, I read with great interest your article on Lupe Simpson ("I'll Show You," Dec. 7). I noted that she took credit for having invented and implemented such programs as tutoring, parent training and career, college and academic counseling. Not once did Simpson credit any of her teaching, administrative or clerical staff for any suggestions or assistance regarding these programs. I believe that, at one time or another, some of them must have had a positive role at the school.

I would like to commend you for highlighting an individual of Lupe Simpson's caliber. She is one administrator who is concerned with students. She is also concerned with enabling parents to become involved with their children's education. As a parent I have been made to feel welcome. I am a member of the parent committee and have been invited to participate in several seminars of the Achievement Council (a group concerned with the future directions of education). As a Native American, I have approached Simpson with concerns of the Native American community, and she has gone out of her way to accommodate us. CHARLES NARCHO Bell

What makes you angry? Consultant Floyd McGregor asked three middle-school boys to identify what triggers their anger. Typical answers: "When my mom yells at me." "When someone looks at me the wrong way." "When my sister calls me names." McGregor is helping some of the 3,600 students at Chester W. Nimitz Middle School control aggressive behavior and build self-esteem through "Think First," a children's program written by Judy McBride, a Long Beach Unified School District counselor.

Navy Petty Officer Jake Haff urged the group of restless sixth-graders to stay in school, believe in their abilities and hang out with the "smart people in class." "Start believing you can get an A on that paper instead of a C," Haff told Nimitz Middle School students recently during Career Awareness Day. "The only person that can stop you is yourself."

They're managers, technicians, associates, coordinators, executive assistants--a reflection of their growing responsibilities. They're the glue that keeps it together. They hear it all. They know it all. They guard it all. And, today, their bosses will salute them in the annual celebration known as Professional Secretaries Day, an idea originated in 1952 with Mary Barrett, president of the National Secretaries Assn., founded a decade earlier.
