Since 1975, my family and I have been members of this community. I attended Valencia Elementary for pre-school and kindergarten, and was appointed there as principal after serving as a teacher and coach for a number of years. For four years, as Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services, I oversaw curriculum and instruction, worked closely with teachers and administrators to ensure that all of our K-12 students receive the highest-quality instruction. I have experienced first-hand how much teachers, staff and parents alike embrace my values of family, community, and education.
Together, I look to move forward with the District’s existing initiatives, including project-based instruction to strengthen teaching and learning. The District will continue with technology use both inside and outside the classroom because it is not enough for our students to graduate from high school; they must be prepared for college and careers in the 21st century.
As your Interim Superintendent, I look forward to working with the Board and being a resource for you during the transitional period.
