Principal's Welcome Message
Welcome to Westmont!
The Westmont Elementary School staff is so excited to continue our growth as a Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) school! We developed a comprehensive and well-rounded educational experience that encompasses the arts and core curriculum. Students have explicit teaching in theatre, dance, visual arts and music. It is such an exciting time at Westmont for our students, families and staff.
I am very thankful to begin my fifth year leading the Westmont staff. I have been in education for the past 18 years and the past six as an administrator. I earned my bachelor's degree at California State University at Long Beach and a Master of Social Work at the University of Southern California. I spent 10 years working for the County of Orange as a social worker before making the decision to switch careers and become a teacher after I started my family. I taught multiple grade levels at multiple schools before becoming an administrator. My passion is working with children to assist them in reaching their full potential and becoming productive, well-rounded community members.
What I love the most about being an administrator is that instead of having 32 children, I get to have 300 children. I love working with all my students! I also love working with our families. Our Westmont parents are committed to improving the lives of children, and not just their own. It makes me very proud to work alongside such caring and compassionate adults. Our strongest asset at Westmont is our outstanding staff. Our teachers are committed to every student on campus. Being a smaller school gives us the opportunity to genuinely know our students. The entire Westmont staff prides itself on putting children first and always asking "Is it good for kids?" I am honored to work at Westmont!
