2018-19 is our year to SOAR! Go HAWKS!
I am honored to serve as Assistant Principal of Orchard Hills School! Our HAWKS truly embody our Core Values: They Have Respect, Act Responsibly, Work Together, Know Our Strengths, and Stay Safe. We are fortunate in having a passionate staff, hard-working students, and supportive parents and community who all work collaboratively to make Orchard Hills the amazing learning environment that it is!
The 2018-2019 school year marks my sixth one at Orchard Hills School. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and earned my Master of Education in Cross-Cultural Teaching and Master of Science in Educational Administration from National University. Prior to Orchard Hills School, I served as Assistant Principal at Beckman High School, also in the Tustin Unified School District. My background at the high school level allows me to support our students in getting on the right path to becoming successful high school students, graduates, and lifelong learners.
I love being at Orchard Hills and working with younger students! I am always amazed at how well our teachers and students incorporate the 4Cs of Education - Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity - into their daily learning. I am excited for our transition to a K-8 campus, and eagerly anticipate a year like no other!
A great big welcome to all our Hawks as we soar into the new school year!
Let's have a great 2018-19!
I am honored to help lead such a high performing, innovative 21st century school like Orchard Hills! I am proud to be a HAWK and I am passionate about leading our hawks towards success in all areas of their lives. Character counts at Orchard Hills and we are committed to being respectful, acting responsibly, working together, knowing our strengths and staying safe.
I have been in education for 11 years, all in the Tustin Unified School District. Throughout my time in TUSD, I have taught elementary and middle school and served as a Digital Learning Coach where I helped teachers find meaningful and purposeful ways of implementing technology into their curriculum and lessons. Most recently, I was the Assistant Principal at Hicks Canyon Elementary School.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Vanguard University, and earned my Master of Arts in Educational Technology from Concordia University, Irvine.
The Orchard Hills students, staff and community all play a large part in our role as a team that is working together to help ensure that Orchard Hills is a high achieving, warm, welcoming school that people want to be a part of. We are the O.H. family that I am so happy to be a part of.
I look forward to a great year of leading our hawks and helping them pave the way towards success.
