Letter from the Principal

Dear Northwood Elementary School Community,

I am thrilled and honored to have been selected as your principal, and am very much looking forward to working as a member of the Northwood team, alongside our dedicated staff, families, and students. I have worked for the past sixteen years as a school site administrator - as a vice principal in a K-8 school and two middle schools, and as a preschool-5th elementary school principal. Prior to becoming a school administrator, I worked as a school counselor at a middle school and elementary school, as an elementary school intervention program coordinator, and as an adjunct professor in the Counseling Department at Sonoma State University. I have spent my career working within schools, forming and maintaining partnerships with agencies and organizations, with the goal of motivating and supporting students as they progress throughout their school years.

As your site leader, I look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders in our school community, determining our goals, and together, creating and implementing a plan to attain them. Visibility and accessibility are important to me, and I will be as available as possible to all members of our school community. Forming and maintaining positive connections maintains a positive campus culture and climate, in which we can all support student achievement. I look forward to working with you on our School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee, and Parent Faculty Club, along with a variety of other committees and groups that guide the resources and support in place to promote student success. Thank you in advance for all of your support, flexibility and patience as we transition to the 2020-21 school year.

The vast majority of the information regarding our re-opening plans, including the phased return and virtual learning academy options, will be available on the NVUSD website on Monday, July 20. However, if you have questions or site-specific concerns, please feel free to contact me. I eagerly anticipate getting to know all of you as I become a member of the Northwood community!
