Quartz Hill Students and Families,
It is with great excitement that I write to you as the new Principal of Quartz Hill High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead such an outstanding school, with great students, families, staff, and community.
I have been an educator with our district for 18 years as a teacher and administrator. Within that time, I have been fortunate to work with great people throughout the district in several of our schools and to collaborate with community members throughout the Antelope Valley. As a teacher, I started my career in the Alternative Placement Schools and later transferred to a comprehensive site where I gained experience with AVID, Advanced Placement, the Core Instructional Model, and our Instructional Leadership program. As an administrator, I started my career here at Quartz Hill where I received a great welcome from the staff as a new vice principal. I took the experience from Quartz Hill with me to the other campuses as I grew as a leader in various positions. I look forward to bringing my collective experience from the several settings and schools that I was honored to work at and use them as your new principal.
This summer we have worked to ensure a smooth transition by meeting with the previous administration and staff to better understand the unique needs of our students. I am committed to embracing the positive traditions and practices that are in place at Quartz Hill while working diligently to ensure continued success of our students in the future. I view education as a lifelong process and through continual learning, we can meet the needs of all of our students. The relationship between families and the school is vital to the success of our students. Together we can help our children to excel through hard work, dedication, and collaboration.
I am excited to start the new school year with my administrative team, faculty, staff, students, and families of Quartz Hill High School.

Reopening Protocols for K-12 Schools: Appendix T1

In addition, to the conditions imposed on schools by the State Public Health Officer and the California Department of Education, schools must also be in compliance with these employee and student safety and infection control protocols.
