It is with great pride and excitement that I step into the role of Principal at El Monte Middle School for the 2020-2021 school year. Over the past ten years, I have had the privilege of serving the students of El Monte in the capacity of a 6th grade teacher, assistant principal, and now principal. Throughout my years at EMMS, I have worked with many wonderful students, parents, and staff. Middle school is such an important time in a student’s life. El Monte prides itself in providing students with opportunities to become productive citizens. As your new principal, I will work hand in hand with teachers, staff, parents, and students to provide all scholars with a rigorous academic experience. Our school mantra Lead, Believe, Succeed will continue to be our focus as we develop school practices to prepare students to be college and career ready.
