Dear Families


It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Pajarito Elementary School. I am a native of Albuquerque and both my husband and I are products of Albuquerque Public Schools, Rio Grande and West Mesa, respectively. Education is my second career, but I like to say, “My career of choice.” I possess over seventeen years of educational experience in both elementary school and high school. I’ve taught Special Education and Regular Education at Susie Rayos Marmon and Valley. I was also the 9th Grade Dean at Valley High School before becoming the assistant principal at Mary Ann Binford. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to our school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure our success.

In my eyes, one of the most important aspects of my work as Pajarito’s principal is building solid relationships with students, families and teachers. It will be very important to me to get to know your child/children. In my past experience, I have found that kids really appreciate a person who genuinely invests in them and who is fair in decision making. These two things are extremely important to me.

In addition to building strong relationships, it will be particularly important to make sure that your child and you feel safe at school. If you ever have a concern about something or a question about a specific situation or procedure please do not hesitate to call or email me. Communication is paramount in a school. For this reason, I will always encourage you to contact your child’s teacher or me with questions.

Pajarito is a school that has many things to be proud of. I thank you in advance for welcoming me as a part of this great community!
