Greetings Grand View Families!
It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I join Grand View Elementary as your new Principal.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure your children feel welcome, safe, and prepared to learn and grow here at school. Together, I am certain we can get back to celebrating those rewarding in person moments big or small! There are so many Grand View traditions we will continue. I am thrilled to become a part of that incredible legacy!
This marks my fifteenth year in education, and my fifth here in the Manhattan Beach Unified School District. As an educator, I am driven to inspire a love of lifelong learning within every student. School should be fun, and I guarantee you we will have a GREAT time while cultivating skills, fostering friendships, and preparing our students to become leaders of tomorrow. 
I have dedicated my career to teaching, supporting, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am delighted to bring my passion, innovation and experience to continue the exceptional educational opportunities that Grand View has to offer. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes Grand View thrive.
At the heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve. I look forward to listening to your ideas and vision for our school and collaborating with each of you to support our sense of community here at Grand View. As your Principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family. Please be on the lookout for upcoming Principal Messages in our Gator Gazette, Coffee’s with the Principal, and other family events, but also know that I would love to hear from you any time! I am committed to providing you with timely responses to concerns and consistent communication.
I know many of our students and families are eagerly anticipating the upcoming school year. I am too! In the next few days I will be walking the campus, meeting the staff, and getting up to speed with many logistical matters. You can expect more information regarding the start of the school year as well as construction updates very soon! 
Please feel free to contact me by email at [email protected], or by calling our school office at (310) 546-8022 extension 5460. I welcome any questions or ideas you would like to share.
I look forward to meeting our Gators in person and cheers to a GREAT new school year!

See You Later Gators,
