Dear Elliott Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the newly appointed Principal of Elliott Alternative Education Center, effective July 1, 2020. I am honored and delighted to become the leader of a school that I am passionate about. I have spent fourteen of my twenty-three years in education at Elliott, both as a teacher and as Associate Principal. I have also taught first and second grade, was the Assistant Principal of Supervision at Downey High School, and am finishing my third year as Principal at Enslen Elementary. I am excited to bring my skills and experience back to Elliott as your partner in education, to ensure your child’s success.

As your Principal, it is important that everyone who steps through the doors at Elliott has a positive experience, and is excited to be here. I believe in building strong relationships, and welcome you to provide input and be a part of your child’s education. My goal is to ensure that all students are safe, healthy, happy, and successful. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am looking forward to next school year!
