Principal's Message

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. Imperial is a warm and friendly school, where you will find children from varied backgrounds and needs learning and growing. As the new principal of Imperial, I am honored and excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year as a member of the Eagles family. 

Our main purpose at Imperial is to ensure a safe and challenging learning environment for each and every student. Our highly qualified teaching staff uses state and district curricular standards and chooses the most effective instructional strategies and methods to meet our students’ needs. At Imperial we have special programs to meet the diverse needs of all our students.

I look forward to collaborating and building partnerships with the students, teachers, and the community of Imperial Elementary. I have dedicated my career to the Orange Unified School District where I have served as an educator for 15 years. My experiences in education include elementary classroom teacher, Reading Resource Teacher, ELD Resource Teacher, Title One Instructional Specialist, and Assistant Principal. 

As an educator and leader, I am passionate about fostering a positive school culture and climate where every child can be successful. I am dedicated to ensuring that all students are exposed to 21st Century learning opportunities and that students gain the skills necessary for life-long success. As an Orange County native, I live in North Tustin with my husband Justin, daughter Kennedy (age 10),  son Maverick (age 7), and golden retriever Pilot. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. 

Parents have the opportunity to take an active role at Imperial. Our PTA is strong and provides the extras that make Imperial a special place. Our partnership with Canyon High School’s Careers in Education Program gives our students the opportunity to work in small groups, while helping high school students participate in pre-education course work toward their intended career. This year we are again partnering with students from Canyon High School to share the focus of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) with our students.

To increase school connectivity and see all the wonderful happening at Imperial throughout the 2018-2019 school year, please follow us on Twitter @ImperialEagles and Instagram @ ImperialEagles_OUSD . 

We are Eagles watch us SOAR!
