It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of East Elementary School and to join this extraordinary school community. At East Elementary, we strive to create life-long learners, encourage community partnerships, and create a safe, positive culture that empowers students beyond the classrooms. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children every day while providing them with a world-class learning environment.

My conversations with district staff and families over the last month have brought me privileged insights into the core beliefs and values that underlie the Humboldt City School System. I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and to communicate with parents and community members more effectively. I will be meeting with parents, students, and staff throughout the year to identify specific goals in the areas of student achievement, school climate, and parent communication.

In closing, please know that my door is always open for you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2022-2023 school year.
