I have worked in TUSD for the past 12 years. I started my Tustin career as a reading specialist and resource teacher at Tustin Memorial Academy. I later served as a Teacher on Special Assignment in curriculum at Hicks Canyon Elementary. In 2013, I became Assistant Principal at Hicks Canyon Elementary. Prior to TUSD, I worked as an elementary teacher in the Anaheim City School District teaching 1st and 4th grades.
Understanding that community is the essence of a successful school, I have built close working relationships with staff, students and families alike. As we begin the 2017-18 school year, I look forward to building these same positive and trusting relationships while continuing the best practices that are reflective of a TUSD school. High quality 21st century educational experiences continue to be a highest priority while working with families and staff to provide a safe and supportive campus where the focus remains on learning.
I love being part of the ‘hidden gem’ of Tustin, Barbara Benson Elementary!
