Principal’s Message

It has been an honor and a privilege to be part of the Slauson community and to share the work with families and teachers that greatly value education. I am so thrilled to be going into my ninth year with Slauson Academy and to be fulfilling my role as principal for the fifth year. Over the course of five years, we have made significant improvements in several program elements that make our school the school of choice. With the major changes I have made for the 19-20 school year, we are ready to take our work to the next level and to continue pushing student academic growth. Through the application of our organization’s vision and mission coupled with our school site vision and mission, Slauson will focus on a shared vision that emphasizes school wide work in building relationships, strengthening our culture & climate, and expanding on instruction to develop strong readers. I have prioritized my work this year by focusing on developing leadership capacity in all of my teachers so that we can balance responsibilities in efficient and productive ways that move our school forward. This year, as outlined in our school action plan, we will work hard to increase performance in five areas: ELA instruction, English Language Development and Standard English Language Development, Math instruction, struggling readers, and school-wide culture. In addition, we will begin building a solid knowledge base in social emotional learning and trauma informed practices so that teachers are better equipped to understand and meet the needs of all of our students. My hope is to continue strengthening a learning environment where students feel safe and are having fun while learning. In addition, I am determined to foster a professional learning environment for all staff members where teaching and learning is meaningful and fun.

Join me this year as we live, breathe, and emulate our school slogan – “Why look at the STARS when you can be one?”.
