• Hello, Shark Families:

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I look forward to a wonderful school year.  It is my honor to serve at Dublin Elementary School as your principal. 

    For those of you who have not met me, please allow me to introduce myself…

    I was raised in Pleasanton, California; where my parents still reside.  After high school, I attended UC Davis and graduated with a Bachelors in Science.  From there, I went to Saint Mary’s College where I earned my multiple-subject teaching credential, Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, and administrative credential.   Now, as a principal, I have the distinct pleasure of serving on the most “jaw-some” campus. 

    As a principal and educator, I have high expectations for our students.  In the classroom, on the playground, and in the community, I encourage best effort, a positive attitude, and a sense of personal responsibility among our children.  I want them to be enthusiastic, confident, and inquisitive learners.  To promote student success, I believe in fostering a shared-learning community that prioritizes communication, efficiency, safety, and respect.  Staff, parent/guardian, and student collaboration is very important to me.

    We are a school community that is built on Shark Pride!

    Positive attitude................Speak with kindness and show an open mind.

    Respect..............................Staff, students, and families working together.

    Integrity.............................Honesty, responsibility, and a clean campus.

    Doing our best effort.........Hard work and focus.

    Encouragement.................Celebrating our victories and differences.

    At Dublin Elementary motivating and empowering our children to reach their highest potential is paramount!  We have high expectations for our students.  Providing them with a rigorous and differentiated education that prepares them for the 21st century is a collaborative effort.  Our staff and families are committed to fostering a safe, efficient, engaging, and welcoming learning community for our children.  We are proud of the skills, knowledge, and experiences that we have shared with them, and we thank our community for their tremendous support! 

    Welcome to the Dublin Elementary World of Learning.  We are a community united in serving every student in every classroom.  Go Sharks!
