Principal's Welcome Message
Welcome to Lake View Elementary School! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our school and the innovative program implemented in 2016. Lake View officially became a STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math) school during the 2016-2017 school year. With a fully integrated STEAM curriculum during the entire school day, students are immersed in a unique educational experience. I believe that our children must be adequately prepared to meet the opportunities and demands of the 21st century workforce. Preparing the children now for collaboration, innovation and experimentation is the key to nurturing our children to be ready for an ever-changing world.
I have served in education for 17 years and am thrilled to be starting my seventh year with the Ocean View School District as the Principal of Lake View. I am a dedicated educator and lifetime student of teaching and learning. I received a bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, a master’s degree in Cross-cultural Education from National University, and a master’s degree in School Counseling from the University of La Verne. In my free time, you will find me spending quality time with my family, husband, and friends. I have three children, two boys and a girl, whom I adore beyond words.
You will see that I love working with children and families within the school community I serve, and I am passionate about integrating technology within the classroom. The STEAM program at Lake View is designed to address the multiple learning styles of all children, and I am excited to be a part of such an amazing program!
