Principal's Message


It is a great honor to introduce myself as the principal at Imperial Elementary School. I look forward to serving this amazing community by working collaboratively with students, families, staff, and our community partners.

As a teacher, I taught in elementary and high school classrooms. I have served as an instructional specialist at Canyon High School ensuring quality Career and Technical instruction for all students. And most recently, I had the
opportunity to learn from many great principals as an assistant principal Capistrano Unified. I am so excited to lead such a highly regarded school community as Imperial Elementary.

My greatest goals are to continue to provide leadership that will facilitate a safe and healthy school environment where ALL students learn at high levels. With my leadership, staff will continue the legacy of success in providing a differentiated instructional program that is student-centered to meet the needs of all students both academically and socially-emotionally.

I look forward to working with an amazing PTA as well as all other parent volunteers. As a parent and educator, I know firsthand how student performance and success in school go hand in hand with parental involvement. I invite you to join our PTA, run for School Site Council, or become a classroom volunteer. Please join us as valued partner!

As principal, my door is always open to answer questions and gather ideas as to how best to honor the student-centered traditions and goals of Imperial.
