Meet the Principal
I’ve spent most of my career in the Land Park community as the Assistant Principal at California Middle School and C.K. McClatchy High School where I have had the privilege to walk the neighborhood and greet families on a daily basis. The time I invested in meeting families has brought me privileged insight into the core beliefs and values rooted in Crocker/Riverside Elementary School. As your principal, I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and to effectively communicate with families and community members.
To our students, I cannot wait to meet you all!! I anticipate that you are excited for the first day of school on September 2nd. I hope you are out this summer playing and reading tons of books with your family and friends. It is going to be a fun year learning together. If you are near the school this summer, please stop by and say hello! I am on campus Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00AM and 2:00PM.
In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I genuinely welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work, and I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2021-2022 school year.
