Welcome to another great year at Luiseño School. I am honored to be the Assistant Principal of our wonderful school. For those of you who are new to Luiseño, I extend a warm welcome. This will be my sixth year as AP at Luiseño. I have been in the district for 17 years as an administrator, teacher of various grades, as well as an intervention teacher. Before coming to LEUSD I was a performing arts teacher for a high school of the arts. I realized early that what I really wanted to do in my career was help children establish their own college and career goals. I want every child to realize they can be a success story. I am so proud to be at this site because Luiseño is a wonderful place to learn and grow. We have an exemplary teaching and support staff, dedicated parents, and hardworking students. Our commitment is to facilitate a passion for life-long learning for our students, we celebrate our individuality as well as our unity, and challenge ourselves to be a little better each day and to never give up. I look forward to another successful and positive year of watching our leopards grow into the amazing people they will become in the future. I look forward to seeing you this school year and please feel free to contact me should you need anything.
