I am honored and proud to serve as the Superintendent for Los Molinos Unified School District!
We are embarking on a new journey. Our new vision is to provide high quality instruction, student achievement, closing the achievement gap, developing literacy and academic language across all grades levels, developing college and career pathways in a 21st century learning environment, and support for all students through Response to Intervention (RTI), and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Our Board of Trustees are highly committed to ensuring our district advances to new heights!
My administrative background as a champion for kids has provided me with many memorable experiences of increasing student achievement throughout the State of California. My core beliefs are:
All students can and must learn
Hope is not a strategy
We can't blame the kids
Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships is the foundation
I am in my 10th year of High School administration after having spent 16 years teaching. I am a product of Tehama County having lived in Corning, Los Molinos and Red Bluff. I graduated from Corning High School in 1984 and attended Shasta College, Chico State University and National University. My priorities in education are to prepare each student for their next steps in life by providing the best opportunities possible while in high school. I look forward to working with the high school educational community as well as parents. Together we will continue to improve Los Molinos High School and provide a quality education for all students.
I have been with the Los Molinos Unified School District for 21 years teaching Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 3rd/4th combination classes. I taught at Los Molinos Elementary for my first 6 years and I have been at Vina Elementary ever since. In the 2013-2014 school year I was honored to become principal at Vina and continue teaching the 3rd/4th grade combination class. Vina is a very special place and I am so grateful to teach there.
I live in Los Molinos with my husband, Jim and our 3 dogs. We have two grown children and we’ve recently become proud grandparents!
