Dear Monroe Middle Students, Teachers, Parents and Community Members,

It is with great anticipation and excitement that I introduce myself to you as your new  Principal of Monroe Middle School.  I am passionate of the opportunity to join the Monroe Middle School (Go Mavericks!) in continuing to develop our students socially/emotionally and academically. Through my position as the Principal I plan to contribute to the school based on my past experiences in education as a student, teacher, professor, high school administrator and parent. It is with these same experiences that inspire me to wake up each morning and think of how I can positively impact the lives of our students. My experience as a high school administrator for East Side Union High School District has also provided me an understanding of the challenges and preparation needed to be successful in high school and beyond. Our work together will be very rewarding!

Outside of work my passion continues through my time with my family and friends. I truly enjoy my time with my two children and wife and can often be found enjoying the sites and sounds of the bay area. Also, I enjoy a great book and spending my time outdoors.  

It is my shared belief that we can work together this year as apart of the greater learning community to prepare our students for college and career success to be globally competitive in the work place. Moreover, as we develop and begin to work together I would like to invite each of continue to join me in helping our students thrive beyond their potential each and every day.

Go Mavericks!
