CAPE Trip!

Hello! I am very fortunate to be the principal at a school that is "the best kept secret" in Oakland.

I have known since the second grade that I wanted to work in education. After having Mrs. Haley for my 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Bella Vista Elementary School, I was positive that I wanted to be a teacher. I attended all Oakland schools and was well prepared to continue my education at the University of California, Davis. I continued my education in the Teacher Corps at California State University, Sacramento. It was an invaluable experience in that my training took place in the California Youth Authority, county detention facility, continuation high school, and an elementary public school.

I first began working at Glenview in the early 1990's as a Teacher on Special Assignment. I returned as Glenview's principal for the 1999-2000 school year. It is rewarding to work in a school that has a diverse student population that enriches the school culture, as well as being attractive to parents as a place for their children to receive an education.

My vision is for Glenview to be an academic and performing arts school of the highest caliber. Our objective is for students to have the freedom to be themselves and express themselves in an open respectful manner. At the same time, we maintain a standard of excellence that develops disciplined students who are objective and sensitive to the needs of others. Our ultimate goal is to produce individuals who will be productive citizens who see the value of volunteering and community development that aims at furthering the extended family concept.
