Dear Ramona Junior High Families:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year! As the summer is quickly coming to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the school community. As the newly appointed Principal of Ramona, I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. 

 I possess over thirty years of experience in the field of education serving in a variety of capacities that include teaching and counseling at both the elementary and secondary levels and at the district level as a Teacher Specialist, Academic Coach, Work Force Development Coordinator and Early High School College Administrator. My most recent administrative experience has been serving as the Principal of Canyon Hills Junior High School here in Chino Valley. 

My goal as an educational leader is to partner with you, your son/daughter, and the staff to ensure your child’s growth and success - academically, socially, and emotionally. We will continue the legacy of success already established at Ramona such as nurturing a safe environment for everyone, using data to inform common core instruction, providing challenging opportunities for all students, and continuing to develop school to college and career skills.

As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make 2016-2017 the best year yet! 

As a reminder, Summer Orientation for 7th grade students will be August 8th (last name begins A-L) and August 9th (last name begins M-Z), at 8:00 a.m. Summer Orientation for 8th grade students will be August 10th (last name begins A-L) and August 11th (last name begins M-Z), at 8:00 a.m. The first day of school will be Monday, August 15, 2016. The staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family and look forward to working with you and your child.
