Hello Millennial Tech Students, Families, and Community Members!
It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the new Associate Principal of Millennial Tech Middle School. I am so grateful and excited to join the MTM family and look forward to working with Ms. Labas and all of you!
For the past 24 years, I have been a classroom teacher, serving the students at Rosa Parks Elementary in City Heights. This has allowed me to work with an incredibly diverse population of students and provided invaluable experience as an educator and teacher leader. My decision to become an administrator came from a deep desire to make a positive impact on an entire school community. This new role will allow me the opportunity to balance being able to work with teachers on a daily basis, while remaining connected with students and their growth and learning in the classroom.
On a personal note, I was born and raised in Oregon and came down to San Diego for college and just couldn’t leave! My husband is a Captain in the Navy and together we have three teenagers who keep us very busy. In our free time, we love to travel, hike, go to the beach, and spend time with friends and family.
I am committed to equity and inclusion and hold fast to the belief that students are the “why” behind the decisions we make as a school site. I know that fostering a strong partnership between home and school is vital to the success of our students. We are a team with the same goal–to make a positive difference in a child’s life. My door is always open, and I welcome your ideas and feedback as we work together to support the great students and staff of MTM!
