• Hello Franklin Community,


    It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Franklin High School. I am excited and humbled to have the opportunity to lead a school with a dedicated community. I am fortunate to be part of this community and looking forward to serving the students and families at Franklin High School. I have been diligently working to complete our 2021-2022 SPSA, getting to know the logistics of the school, and building relationships with the staff that has been present so far.    


    I have been dedicated to the field of education since 1999. My adventure began in Tracy Unified where I taught Mathematics, ELD (Mathematics), and AVID. In 2005 I earned my Administrative credential and began working at the San Joaquin County Office of Education where I supported AVID regionally and other duties as assigned.  When AVID lost state funding, I took a job directly with AVID Center and became the California State Director. I was tasked with meeting with Superintendents throughout the state to determine their needs, developed systems of support throughout the state, and served a team across the state. In 2019, I decided to go back to a district and serve students directly. I intentionally landed in SUSD at Edison High School as an Assistant Principal, I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Franklin High School and to work with and serve the Franklin Community.  


    On a personal note, I have three young adults living in my household. My 22 year old graduated this summer from Cal State East Bay with a BSBA. My 21 year old has three classes to complete and will begin applying to Nursing schools. Last, but not least, my 19 year old son went the CTE path and has landed working with his Dad to support him in expanding his business. I am proud of my children and look forward to creating opportunities for Franklin High School students so they have a path to be successful after high school with skills that will support their progress in their future. Franklin has a multitude of pathways to serve all students with access and support to the pathway of their choice by providing rich learning experiences for all students.


    I view education as a life-long cycle of continuous improvement and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Franklin High School. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to serve our students together. Relationships are vital to the success of our students and I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to meeting you!
