Dear Families,

I am very pleased and proud to be a member of the Bear Valley community. Our school maintains an outstanding reputation due to our dedicated and caring group of staff, parents, and students. I can attest that the faculty and staff of Bear Valley works diligently to provide the best education for our students. Each year our team sets academic goals and develops strategies to meet them. All we ask of the students is to give their best effort. Student learning is indeed the focus of everything we do. However, we know students also need the strong support of their parents as well. I am so proud to be at Bear Valley where I know the parents of our children provide the support our staff and students need to be successful. As we work together during the school year, I invite you to become active in your child’s education either by volunteering in your student’s classroom, attending our school functions or joining ELAC or AAPAC. Through teamwork, open communication, and a dedication to continuous improvement, Bear Valley will continue to be a place where children flourish. Thank you for your continuous commitment to our learning community.

I am proud and excited to start the 23-24 school year as Bear Valley’s new Assistant Principal. It is my honor and privilege to serve this amazing community and continue the outstanding reputation and work that is seen and felt the moment you walk on campus and through our doors. We are dedicated to supporting students, parents, and our staff with focusing on academic goals, student learning, and the social emotional needs of our students. 

Just a little information about me. This is my 26th year in education in which I was a teacher in Moreno Valley Unified for 17 years and a school counselor for 4 years. This is my 5th year as an Assistant Principal. My husband is also an educator and we have 2 children that both attended Moreno Valley Unified School District. My son is currently pursuing a career as a teacher as well. With this being said, education is a very important part of who I am and my goal every day is to provide a safe environment where all students are learning. Please know my door is always open for our students, parents, and community to continue to strive for Excellence on Purpose!
