I bring extensive experience in curriculum, administration, and educational regulations and law. I hold a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership as well as a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, a Reading Certificate and Reading Credential, a Cross Cultural Language and Academic Development (CLAD) Certificate, an Administrative Credential, a Limited Services Community College Credential with an emphasis in Physical Education, and hold a Labor Management Relations Certificate.
Each of my administrative positions has required me to have current knowledge of the California Educational Code, regulations as they apply to both the State and Federal laws, and knowledge of Board Policies and Administrative Regulations as they apply to the governance of a school district.
I began my career as an elementary teacher, was an elementary and middle school principal, a central office administrator, and an assistant superintendent, and currently serve as a superintendent.
As an elementary and middle school principal, I was honored to receive the Association of California School Administrators, Principal of the Year for Colusa, Sutter, and Yuba Counties. As well, the elementary school received the California Title I, Achieving School Award.
Having worked in rural, suburban, and urban school districts, and with charter schools, I reflect on how each setting improved my professional knowledge and fostered an awareness of cultural diversity and the honoring of pluralistic values.I co-facilitated a school closure due to declining enrollment, and reviewed charter school applications. I worked with Program Improvement schools and problem solved alternative education programs that best met the needs of students.
Nevada City School District's top priority is to maintain quality programs and highly qualified staff in our schools for our students. With the challenges of the current budget crisis in the State of California, Nevada City School District faces many budget hurdles. Moving forward will require our school community to work together. Thank you for your support and cooperation during these difficult times.
