Dear Banyan Elementary Families,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter as the new principal of Banyan Elementary School. I am both honored and excited to become a Bulldog! It is an amazing school, and I am looking forward to getting to know the students, families and community.
I would like to take this opportunity to share a little information about me. I attended Cal State University of San Bernardino where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and received my teaching credential. I went on to earn my master’s degree in Reading and Literacy and later obtained an Administrative Credential. This year will mark my twenty-second year in education. I have served as a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher, an assistant principal and a principal.
Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. I cannot wait to share with you the great things our students do while here at Banyan Elementary. And of course, I will be here to work with you should you need any help navigating the school year.
My vision for the school is to ensure that all students are inspired to achieve both academically and socially. Banyan staff does a wonderful job providing an enriching experience and always hold students to high standards. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone steps through our doors- teachers, students and parents- feeling welcome and excited to be here. This attitude will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment, and I am dedicated to ensuring students experience an outstanding education.
Welcome to Banyan Elementary School. We hope that you find Banyan to be an exciting place where students enjoy attending. We strive to create an environment where families feel welcome and enjoy participating in our many events.
Banyan provides a warm, stimulating environment where students are actively involved in learning academics, as well as, positive values. Students receive a standards-based, challenging curriculum by dedicated professional staff and based on the individual needs of the students. Ongoing evaluation of student progress and achievement helps us refine the instructional program so students can achieve academic proficiency.
We continue to be commited to providing the best educational program possible for all students and welcome any suggestions or questions you may have about the information contained on this website or about the school. Together through our hard work, our students will be challenged to reach their maximum potential.
