Principal's Message - Friday, July 23rdtitle
Hello Zamora Families,
I hope this communication finds you all doing well and enjoying your summer break. It is my sincerest wish that the information that I will share with you today is received with an open heart and mind. Know that this was not an easy decision - on any level - to make.
I am writing to you to inform you that in last evening’s Board Meeting, I was appointed as the new Director for Student Support Services for the Woodland Joint Unified School District. While I am excited about this new venture, it does come with mixed emotions. It is not a secret that one day I do wish to work at the university level teaching future teachers and administrators. This decision to move to a district-level administrative position at this juncture in my career will help me step more solidly in that direction. To say that I have valued my time with you over these past six years is an understatement. I do take comfort in knowing that I will still be close by, in our district, though supporting students and staff in a different capacity, I can still keep an eye out for you.
As I transition to my new position, there will be an interim principal appointed to hold down the fort as they begin the hiring process for a new principal. I will be active in this transition. Please look for future emails from me and our interim principal, Liese Martinez, as we get closer to the beginning of our school year.
I wish you the best of this school year. I am so thankful we will be returning for full days, 5 days a week. A reminder that the first day of school will be Thursday, August 19. Again – more details to come in the next weeks.
Thank you all for your continuous support of our school community, Zamora is a place like no other – I will miss you!
