 Dear Students, Families, Staff and Community Stakeholders,


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  As the new principal at Maple High School, I am honored to be joining this team of dedicated teachers and staff. Over the past several weeks I have had many positive interactions with students and staff alike.  The staff at Maple High School promote a safe, respectful environment for students to learn and they honor their desire to take ownership of their education.  The connection between the staff and students at MHS is second-to-none and I could not be happier to be here.


Prior to Maple, I served as a consulting teacher for the Lompoc Apprentice Teacher Support Program in Lompoc Unified School District for two years. Within that capacity, I worked closely with my team to provide individualized support and professional development to new teachers in LUSD.  


I come from a diverse background, being 1 of 9 children, all who attended schools in Lompoc.  I started my career teaching special education for Santa Barbara County of Education in 2000, and soon after started teaching work education, resource and special day class within the district.  I coached at the high school level for 9 years and believe wholeheartedly that students who remain active in sports, leadership, clubs on campus, or after school programs remain more engaged in school.


I am excited to begin this journey and look forward to the upcoming year.  We are here to support you in your educational and life goals.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at, or (805) 742-3150.  Have a Fantastic Year!
