Principal's Welcome

New playground opening


Welcome to Ventana Vista Elementary School! We are rooted in a tradition of excellence and innovation. We are proud of our school and the wonderful things that are happening here. At Ventana Vista we have exceptional teachers and staff members who are energetic, innovative and dedicated to the success of all students. We have an unswerving commitment to the development of the “whole child”. You will observe a safe and caring learning climate that emphasizes skills while recognizing the importance of each child’s emotional, social, and intellectual self. We provide world-class learning opportunities that incorporate deep learning proficiencies--Communication, Citizenship, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Creativity and Innovation, Collaboration, and Systems Thinking all in a safe and nurturing environment. You will observe classroom teachers differentiating instruction, infusing technology into lessons, and implementing strategic interventions/enrichment when students are not learning or come to us already knowing essential skills.

As the principal of Ventana Vista, my goal is to foster relationships and inspire excellence. You will see this excellence throughout the school in everything we do from the staff, students, and community. My goal is for every student in our school to receive a high quality education which prepares them to be competitive in a global society. We are fiercely passionate educators with a dedication to personal and professional growth and in the best practices of educating 21st century learners.

Let’s work together to continue our tradition of being a great school and to help all kids realize their potential as trustworthy citizens and tenacious learners. I hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school.

I look forward to getting to know you and your child at Ventana Vista. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions, comments, or concerns.
