I am very excited to be the Principal at North Star Academy. I am proud to be leading a school that works together to foster academic excellence, healthy bodies, and creative minds! I look forward to building relationshps with each of you.
I have been an educator in Redwood City since 2001. I began my teaching career as an 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at McKinley. I also had the opportunity to teach 2nd and 3rd grade at Clifford. I transitioned to administration as the Assistant Principal at Roy Cloud. I love Redwood City and look forward to my continued growth in my role as educator here at North Star Academy.
Along with the teachers and staff, we work together to continue the legacy of success established at North Star by building strong relationshps with families and community partners. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students, and parents - are excited to be here. This attitude helps us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.
