- About Us
Dear Yellow Jackets Students, Families, Teachers and Community,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as your new Principal of Palo Verde High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with a deep history of community involvement, an extremely dedicated staff, and a wonderful student body who excels in academics, community, and athletics. Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to build upon the excellence of our school. My official start date was July 10, 2023 and we have been working diligently for a strong school opening.
I started my journey in the education field twenty-two years ago. That was one of my best decisions because education for me is a lifestyle. I enjoy it. As a teacher, I coached the sport teams at my schools and I was surprised when I found out you got paid to have so much fun. I taught and coached for thirteen years before becoming an Intervention Specialist for one year. The students have always been great. Some have had a rough life, but their resilience inspires me to improve daily. Eight years ago my journey began as an administrator. My administrative experience includes two years as an assistant principal and six years as a high school principal. I am known for being a student-centered principal who cares deeply for all students and their success. I know it takes the dedication of a caring staff and the support of a caring community to provide a wonderful journey to all of our students. I look forward to working with our school community to help bring the best high school experience for all of our students.
This school year we will focus our attention on building community through Collective Efficacy. This is a shared belief that every student has the ability to succeed. This will be a common theme for all of our stakeholders as we strive to provide the best possible high school experience for our students. We also want to focus our attention on academics with Direct Interactive Instruction and extracurricular activities with athletics, band, clubs, student government, and theatre. In addition, we value our partnership with Palo Verde College and encourage participation in the Upward Bound program.
I value the feedback from our students, school community, and staff. Please feel free to contact me at my school email at email@example.com or call the school to set an appointment to discuss our school and our path to greatness. I look forward to working with the Palo Verde High School teachers, staff, and community to ensure that we have a safe and very productive 2023-2024 school year together.
Go Yellow Jackets!!!
There are no bad students, only students
