Principal's Message

Hello Mission Families!

Welcome to Mission Elementary, home of the Dolphins! I am honored to serve as the principal of Mission Elementary. Oceanside Unified School District is where I started my teaching career as an elementary teacher and now feel privileged to have the opportunity to work alongside an amazing and dedicated staff that is supportive of each and every student. 

I have held leadership roles at various sites throughout the district. Prior to becoming an assistant principal, I was a Teacher on Special Assignment for our district’s English Learner Program and Migrant Ed. Program. I have taught grades K-4 and served as a middle school School Base Resource Teacher. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies, my Reading Specialist Credential, and a Master’s Degree in Education from Cal. State San Marcos. I also earned my Master of Arts in Educational Administration from Concordia University, Irvine. 

My family and I are proud to call Oceanside our home and we are grateful for the educational experiences and commitment supported throughout OUSD’s schools. Our district celebrates the diverse strengths that our students bring to our school communities. Similarly,  our school community is committed to creating learning opportunities for students to develop their academic and social skills. As a learning community, we believe that our partnership with parents and caregivers is an integral part of our students' success, and therefore look forward to continuing to combine our efforts as we prepare our students for college, career, and life! 

Parents and caregivers, we welcome your participation in any of our committees, such as the PTO, School Site Council, and our English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)! Your input and support are deeply appreciated. Together let’s promote student success and school spirit as we collaborate for an outstanding year ahead!
