Principal's Message

It is with great pride and excitement that I can announce that I am the principal at Monterey High School.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all children are supported and celebrated.  Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes MHS such a special place.


This marks my 20th year in education. As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm, and experience to cultivate the unique educational programs that MHS has to offer. 


At the heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve. I look forward to listening to your ideas and vision for our school and collaborating with each of you to support our sense of community here at  Monterey High School. As your principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family.
