I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement in being the principal of Quail Valley Elementary School.  I am very fortunate to be part of this distinguished learning community.  Our teachers and support staff are devoted to recognizing and nurturing the uniqueness, diversity, creativity, and knowledge in each and every child attending Quail Valley.  We also have many parents who are clearly partners in the education of their children and our students are second to none!  I am honored to be your principal and truly enjoy working with our dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.


My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Northridge, a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University, and a Doctorate in School Administration and Supervision from Berne University.  I have worked for the Palmdale School District since 1992.  I began teaching at Joshua Hills Elementary School.  After many years of teaching, I became a Curriculum Resource Teacher where I was involved in a variety of special programs to enable all students to be successful in school.  In February of 2006, I was appointed Assistant Principal of Ocotillo Elementary School and in August of 2008, I became Assistant Principal of Cactus Middle School.  In May of 2009, I was appointed Principal of Quail Valley Elementary School.


My greatest desire is to provide the leadership that will bring us all together to meet the needs of each student.  The educational program must be academically challenging, engage each student by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experience, and also be exciting to promote further exploration of new ideas.  Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role to guide our children to become active learners.  It is my sincere desire to provide many opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive members in a rapidly changing society.


Please feel free to stop by my office, or introduce yourself while visiting our campus as I am quite interested in learning more about the unique strengths, traditions and practices of Quail Valley Elementary School.  I think you will find me open, honest, and compassionate and I look forward to earning your trust and respect.
