It is with great pride and excitement that I have the opportunity to be your new incoming Principal of Country Springs Elementary School. I am honored to be able to lead a school with rich traditions and a reputation for its dedication to excellence to children!
Personally, I graduated from the University of California, Irvine and began my teaching career at a K-8 charter school. I joined Chino Valley Unified School District in 2013 as an elementary teacher. I have continued to serve our district as a summer school principal, an assistant principal, and most recently the Coordinator of Elementary Curriculum and Instruction. Throughout my career, I consider my most important job is serving students. I believe that the generation we are teaching, your child and our students, will lead and change our world.
I feel fortunate to be joining a school culture where the focus is student centered with a commitment to high expectations. I will put my efforts to continue the legacy of success established at Country Springs by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. Every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together in the best interest of our children. I am sensitive and aware of our current reality of COVID-19 and the impact and uncertainties that lay ahead. With every step and decision made by our governor and superintendent, I will be there to guide our community.
As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors, however it may look this upcoming school year, is excited to be here! I will spend time with our students, getting to know their personalities, learning styles, and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.
Through a close collegial partnership with everyone associated with Country Springs, I look forward to getting to know all of you and working with you to provide a "grand slam" of a school year!
