Principal's Message


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

I come to Imperial with 28 years of experience in education. I have 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 for this opportunity to lead such a highly regarded school community.

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 getting to know and work 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 look forward to being able to welcome
parents back onto our campus to work with teachers to raise the achievements of our students
even higher. Together we can make a difference!

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.
