Dear Kolb Community,
It has been my honor and privilege to come to Kolb as your new principal. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you in the mornings during drop-off and through Donuts with Dad.
I am grateful that Kolb was in the hands of 2 very experienced administrators who have set things in motion for us to start off the year. Mrs. Heisser has been invaluable in setting up meetings and plans for our school so that we can meet important deadlines.
As you may have read through the DUSD announcement, I have experience in various school districts including Los Angeles, San Jose and Fremont. I am thrilled to be able to work in the community in which I live rather than commuting from afar. Many of the principals whom I have admired over the years were from the community in which they served, and I believe it was a critical component to their success and longevity.
On a personal note, I enjoy trying different kinds of food, cooking, ballroom dancing and traveling.
I look forward to the strong partnership and collaboration with you and the staff to make Kolb the best school for our students. It has been my experience that wonderful ideas come from our students and families, so I look forward to listening to and discussing what you would like to see for your child at our school.
Sincerely, Clara Lee
Joyce Trotter, former Kolb Principal, returned to the school to serve as Assistant Principal on January 24, 2019
