Good, Better, Best; Never Let it Rest Until Our Good is Better and our Better is BEST!

New Principal

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. As a new Paularino Panther I look forward to an exciting year of getting to know all of you and continuing to make Paularino an amazing campus!

I am honored to be your new Principal and I look forward to collaborating and building partnerships with the students, staff, and the community of Paularino Elementary. I have dedicated my career to public education where I have served as an educator for 15 years. My experiences in education include education specialist, general education classroom teacher, Special Education Program Coordinator, Assistant Principal, and Interim Principal. As an educator and leader, I am passionate about fostering a positive school culture and climate where every child can be successful. I share an incredible life with my husband and two children Harrison and Thomas. I enjoy spending time with my extended family, going to Disneyland, and baking.

As we embark on a new school year we will be starting with Distance Learning to keep our students and staff safe as we navigate through the health and safety regulations of COVID-19. As we get closer to the beginning of the school year, please look for communication about procedures for materials pick-up and other details pertaining to our Distance Learning model.

We are going to have a great year at Paularino and I look forward to meeting all of you!
