Ms. Valenzuela, Assistant Principal
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this letter to introduce myself as the Assistant Principal of Flora Arca Mata Elementary School. I am truly honored to have been chosen to fill this role, and help create one of the best schools in Stockton Unified School District. I look forward to meeting each and every student and their family, and work together in an effort to do whatever it takes to advance the achievement of all students on our campus. Together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly challenging and enriching school experience.
I was born and raised here in Stockton, and began working for Stockton Unified School District in 1999. Before becoming an Administrator, I taught for 17 years in various grade levels though Kindergarten to eighth grade. I am excited to use my experience to help guide our students and staff through a successful year; to watch everybody become the best that they can be, in and out of the classroom.
I believe that with a positive attitude, a growth mindset, and good character anyone can achieve great things. I strive to instill those qualities in our young people and to be a positive role model as well. We are all here to learn together. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment that challenges our students to reach beyond their expectations to become lifelong learners who will make the world a better place.
I am excited about the possibilities that this school year will bring and proud to be part of Flora Arca Mata Elementary School.
