Hello Fairhaven Families,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am honored to be able to come back to my hometown and serve my community in the Orange Unified School District. I have been an educator for 23 years and I understand the value of how education can change lives. My father was a migrant worker and he knew from a very young age that he wanted his children to go to college, an opportunity not afforded to him at that time. I am grateful for his example, as well as my mother's, of hard work, integrity, and service. I hope to exemplify these same traits combined with the great education I received in this district that has helped me get to where I am today. I am a proud parent of seven children and have been happily married for 27 years. I understand the important and challenging balance between work and home.
My vision is that all children, regardless of socioeconomic status, have access to quality instruction in a place that is conducive to learning. During this historical time in education, I understand the concerns facing all of us regarding safety, quality education, and socio-emotional components students need. Together with the great team at Fairhaven, we will work to overcome these challenges the best way we can! I look forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure ALL Fairhaven Falcons soar!
