    I am both elated and honored at the opportunity to serve as the Assistant Principal of San Mateo Elementary School! Our vision is to empower students to reach their highest potential while developing a love of learning. As a community of lifelong learners, our core values reflect academic excellence, building relationships, and respect for others, with an overall commitment to our surrounding community. 

    San Mateo Elementary School offers various opportunities to assist in developing the whole child. I look forward to creating a partnership with each of you, as we strategically focus on providing rigorous and challenging instructional opportunities that will increase student achievement across all grade levels and content areas. Our faculty and staff will establish high expectations and work collaboratively to achieve academic success in every classroom,  for every student, every day. 

                I am enthusiastic about serving the students and community of San Mateo.

With your continual support and assistance, we will make this a productive and rewarding school year.
