It is my pleasure and honor to introduce myself as Santa Rosa High School Assistant Principal and one of the new members of the administrative team. I am excited about the opportunity to serve our students, staff and community in a leadership role.
My educational background includes a bachelor of arts in Spanish Literature and a minor in Psychology from UCSD. I earned a master’s degree in Educational Administration and my administrative credential from SDSU. Finally, I earned a doctorate in Education Leadership from UCSD focusing on high performing high schools and school districts.
My experiences as a teacher and administrator have been diverse and rewarding. They have prepared me for the challenges and opportunities of serving as a High School Assistant Principal. My administrative experiences include being an Assistant Principal in comprehensive high schools and middle schools in San Diego County. My teaching experiences include teaching all levels of high school Spanish including beginning and advanced placement. From these professional experiences I have come to appreciate the value of teamwork, collaboration, and open and honest communication with all stakeholders including students, teachers, parents and community members. My personal and professional values include excellence, teamwork, and innovation.
I grew up in Calexico California which is nestled against the U.S. -Mexico border. Calexico is located in Imperial County. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. Growing up in the U.S.-Mexico border allowed me to speak English and Spanish in the community and provided me with meaningful learning opportunities.
In my spare time, I enjoy long distance road cycling, hiking, and weight lifting. I also enjoy listening to podcasts on self improvement and health.
As we initiate our 2021-2022 school year, I encourage all parents, community members, and stakeholders to become involved with our school program. Our parent involvement and community outreach programs have exciting volunteering and learning workshops for anyone interested in learning about our school. Please feel free to visit our website for updates and to learn about our exciting educational programs we offer to our students.
By working together we will increase our impact on our students as we prepare them for their next step in their educational journey. I look forward to meeting all of you and working together throughout the year.
