Dear Friends and Families,

I am very excited to be starting my third year here at Dos Caminos. Although I am new to Palmdale School District, I have spent the last 18 years of my career working as an educator, administrator and proponent of bilingual education here in California.  As a first generation American g
rowing up in Los Angeles, I realized early on how important it was to communicate in two languages and how much more marketable I became upon graduating from college.

My dream has always been to give this gift of bilingualism and biliteracy to all students and so becoming a principal of a Dual Immersion school was a dream come true. This program challenges our students to be critical thinkers who can appreciate culture and diversity in others.  Dos Caminos may be a new school, but we follow in the footsteps of the wonderful program at Los Amigos which has been showing continuous growth and success over the past 10 years.  I invite prospective families to come visit us and consider giving your child the gift of two languages.  It is our intention here at Dos Caminos to make our families and students feel welcomed and heard ~ always in two languages!
