“Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
WELCOME TO CALLE MAYOR MIDDLE SCHOOL,
As the Principal of Calle Mayor Middle School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of this great school community. I continue to work towards academic and cultural excellence that will result in a collegial partnership between the school, staff and parents. I am truly honored to be appointed to this position and am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible education program for our students.
Middle School is a time of change. The development of a child academically and socially is greater than at the elementary school level. The campus is larger, more students, many different teachers throughout the day and a dedicated physical education class. A new school year is always an exciting time for all. It presents opportunities for various beginnings – new classes, new faces, new expectations, a busier schedule, and more challenges. It is my goal to minimize this transition for both parents and students and create an exciting place to learn.
We are beginning another exciting school year at Calle Mayor and we have been in a transformation, academically and physically, over the last few years on our campus. Academically we are excited about continuing and implementing District Signature Teaching Practices and our Professional Learning Communities. We are also excited to have been selected this last year 2022 as a California Pivotal Practice School, piggybacking on last years award of California Distinguished School 2021, which we were one of 31 schools identified in Los Angeles County for this special award. I undestand that last few years have been a challenge and know that change can present many challenges but together we can always overcome them all. Together we are stronger!
My greatest initiative is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a safe learning environment which motivates and prepares our students to meet any academic challenges that are presented in front of them. Together we are committed to the academic, social and physical development of our students and this would not be possible without the support and commitment of staff, parents and our community.
I look forward to meeting with all of you in the future and would like to welcome you to Calle Mayor Middle School. Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions or concerns.
