Mrs. Lorena Rubio, Principal
My name is Lorena Rubio. I am humbled and excited to be Jordan's principal. I grew up in Costa Mesa and attended schools in Newport-Mesa USD. I also attended Orange Coast College and transferred to Cal State Fullerton to complete my BA in Liberal Studies. I then received an M.A. with a BCLAD teaching credential from National University. 10 years later, I attended Concordia University and received an M.A. in Educational Administration with an admin prelim credential. I cleared my admin credential through UCI.
My journey in the education field began right out of high school in as an instructional aide and activity supervisor at the elementary school I attended as a child. I then worked as a family liaison for Migrant Education. As I was completing my BA, I had the opportunity to teach a Bilingual Kinder class in NMUSD. In 1999, I began working for the Santa Ana Unified School District and taught K-5th for 18 years. Moreover, in SAUSD, I held a two-year position as a Certificated Learning and Achievement Specialist (CLAS). I was an assistant principal at Lowell Elementary and I was assigned interim principal at Pio Pico Elementary; both schools offered the dual immersion program and implemented inclusive practices in K-5th grades. This brings me to present day and working with an amazing community!
As an educator, I will make every effort to ensure that each child is treated with respect and is in a safe school. I believe that it is important that families and staff members work collaboratively to help students succeed. My personal mission is to ensure that students will be well equipped to impact, influence and contribute to a global society with the freedom to explore and develop their strengths. It is with great enthusiasm, that as a team we continue the great work with our Jordan staff and community. I am looking forward to another successful year!
Jordan Scholars can and will succeed!
