    Dear Lincoln Community,


    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! The new school year starts on Monday, August 14 at 8:00 a.m.


    I am humbled and honored to be the new Principal at Lincoln Elementary School. Having previously served as Lincoln’s Assistant Principal for the last four years, I am excited to continue to build upon our school's legacy of excellence and compassion. I have been an educator for 19 years and served as an elementary school teacher, instructional coach, and ELA/ELD curriculum specialist before coming to Lincoln Elementary School. This year, we also have a new Assistant Principal, Mr. Reyes. He is an experienced Assistant Principal, former special education teacher, and is looking forward to serving our Lincoln community. 


    At Lincoln Elementary, we are committed to providing a well-rounded education focusing on academic achievement and nurturing each student's social, emotional, and physical growth. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive learning environment where every child feels valued, supported, and empowered.


    As we embark on this new academic year, I envision an exciting and transformative journey. We will continue to embrace innovation in teaching, utilize educational technologies, and create enriching opportunities for our students to excel inside and outside the classroom. Let us unite as one Lincoln family, striving for excellence in education and instilling values to serve our students throughout their lives. I am confident that with our collective efforts, Lincoln Elementary School will continue to flourish and positively impact the lives of our students.


    Thank you for entrusting your children's education to us. I am excited and honored to lead Lincoln Elementary and look forward to an enriching and successful academic year ahead.
