Principal's Message

Dear Adams Families,


I am honored and humbled to be appointed as the new principal of Adams Middle School.  I look forward to re-joining a community with a well-deserved reputation for serving its students with high-quality instruction and inclusive practices.


For the past two years, I have been the principal of Tulita Elementary School in RBUSD.  During my time at Tulita, I had the opportunity to support teachers as we worked to ensure students had the foundational building blocks of their academic and social development. I also had the privilege to partner with teachers to develop a culture of inclusivity and an attitude that every student can learn and thrive academically.  To say I was proud of the work we accomplished as a staff would be an understatement.


I started my journey in education at Adams Middle School as a social science teacher and then served as the Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA), overseeing our Title I program.  After my time serving as a teacher and TOSA at Adams, I served as an elementary assistant principal in RBUSD at Alta Vista Elementary and Washington Elementary, and as an assistant principal at Adams. 


Adams is a second home to me.  It is a gem in the South Bay and this is largely due in part to the staff’s dedication, strong parent engagement, whole-child focus, and…ability to have fun! Together, with your partnership, we will continue our outstanding work to provide all students with a safe and enriching environment where they will develop into scholars and productive human beings.


Whether it is our intermural sports program, the award-winning band, the Robotics team, or bringing content to life during Renaissance and Greek Day, we know that engaged students learn and grow.  Fostering a school environment where students have a sense of belonging and purpose is a recipe for ensuring that our students not only leave Adams ready for the finest high school in the South Bay – RUHS, but also prepared for college and career. 


As I assume my new role as the principal of Adams, I look forward to collaborating and building strong relationships with all stakeholders to provide the best possible learning experience for our students.  Please know that my door is always open, and I encourage you to reach out to me with questions, concerns, or just a friendly hello.  When school resumes, I will host a Coffee with the Principal, so we have a chance to meet in person. 


With your support, I look forward to a great 2023-2024 school year.
