• Hello, Cal Aero Family! My name is Mrs. Orttel-Parks and I am one of Cal Aero's Assistant Principals. I look forward to partnering with Mrs. Warner, Mrs. Vega-Jeter, Mr. DeFrancis, and the Cal Aero staff to continue the work of providing an educational experience where the assets and diversity of all students are honored and celebrated.

    I graduated from Loyola Marymount University where I received my graduate degree and was a Teacher for America corps member. In my experience in education, I have worked as a Classroom Teacher, a Special Education Program Specialist, and an Assistant Principal at Alain Leroy Locke College Preparatory Academy. I am excited to bring my skills and experience to the Cal Aero community and can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to care for your children each and every day while providing them with an exceptional learning environment.

    In addition to being an educator, I am also a wife and mother. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our three boys, Tyler, Landin and Lee. We enjoy bike-riding, hiking, and movie nights. 

    I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to serving at Cal Aero. I am eager to partner with you and celebrate our collective success. I look forward to meeting you soon!
