Meet the Assistant Principal

A message from the Assistant Principal:

I am thrilled to be joining the Adelante II community. I am a firm believer in bilingual education, both from an educator as well as a parent perspective. My own child is enrolled in a dual immersion program and I have already seen the role it plays in developing a brain that is flexible and focused. Giving students the opportunity to immerse themselves in culture and language provides them with the ability to excel in language and literacy skills in two languages, develop cross-cultural competencies, and social skills.

I am a first generation college graduate. I attended the University of California, Merced, where I was part of the inaugural class. I then went on to earn my Master's degree in Education at San Jose State University. I have a wealth of knowledge in college going culture, having worked as an academic counselor at the high school level for the last 7 years; I have witnessed the opportunities that dual immersion offers students as they prepare for post secondary plans. My goal for Adelante II is to support our students and work jointly with the principal in leading our school with passion, promoting equity and creating a community where students believe they can achieve. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and getting to know each of our students. 

I am here to help and eager to be part of your support system at Adelante II Dual Language Academy.

I hope to see you soon!
