Principal’s Message

Dear Aztec Parents, Students and Staff,

It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2018 – 2019 school year. I am excited to return to the land of the Aztecs after being away for several years, and honored to serve as your principal.   I am sure I will be asking many questions and working fast to get to know the community and our Aztec culture.  I am looking forward to working with all of you as we ensure each student is provided an opportunity for the highest quality of education possible.

  • To our Students, I ask that you come to school each and every day ready to learn. I will work to encourage you and to support your efforts to grow as individuals.  I will expect that you do your best every day and to demonstrate Aztec Pride in all you do.
  • To our Parents, I ask for your participation and support as we work together this year. Our partnership can and will enhance the level of students success.  I look forward to a very positive and productive year together!
  • To our Staff, I am committed to working alongside you as we fulfill our mission and the districts vision to putting EACH student first. I look forward to our work together in supporting our LCAP goals.
  1. Ensuring excellence in teaching and learning so each student is prepared to succeed in college and career
  2. Creating a safe and healthy learning environment for each student by building a culture so equity and positive climate that promotes excellence throughout the district.
  3. Fostering and honor parent/guardian and community engagement to support excellence in each students’ success.
  4. To developing coherent and transparent systems for operational excellence to support each students’ success.

As Aztecs our Mission is to “create a rigorous and relevant educational experience which guarantees all students reach their potential for personal and academic achievement in preparation for post-secondary demands that include college and career readiness”. I am committed to working alongside our partners in this effort.

During the 2018-2019 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s) as a proven foundation of “Best Practices” and continued to deliver excellence in education.

As a new Principal to Montgomery and a “newer” Administrative team, we are committed to our mission for each student. I am confident that our collaboration and team work will support the success of students here at Montgomery High.  I look forward to working alongside you and to the amazing future together.
