Greetings San Marin Community!

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! This will be a great year to be a Mustang! With program expansions in our smARTt (San Marin Arts and Technical Arts), STEM Marin, Biotechnology Academy, Global Academy, COMPASS (College of Marin Providing Access and Supporting Student Success) Program, and Advanced Placement Program we continue to grow. New construction and renovation have taken place to accommodate this expansion. I expect this expansion will continue as we further develop our existing academies and begin planning for new academies to be implemented in the future.


Like most organizations, the success of San Marin High School is based on the relationships among the community, how information is communicated, and the shared vision of the school. We will spend time focusing our efforts on all three of these this year. Our new district and school websites are examples of how we are trying to improve communications. We will continue to develop the Graduate Profile, specific skills we expect all students to be able to demonstrate prior to graduation from high school. We will continue to develop what are referred to as the 6 C’s (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Conscientious Learner, Cultural Competency, and Character) with an emphasis on Collaboration this year.  We will continue to refine our school vision as the school implements new programs and aligns to district initiatives. The school community will also prepare for a Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Mid-Cycle Accreditation visit in February.  


For those who have yet to work and learn with me, I am starting my sixth year as the principal of San Marin High School and thirty-third year as an educator.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Arts and Minored in Music from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Management from the University of La Verne. I’ve served as high school teacher, high school administrator, elementary school principal, and district office administrator. These previous experiences serve as the foundation for the good work we are doing at San Marin. You can be assured that the San Marin staff will do it’s best to provide an outstanding learning experience for all of our students.


Again, welcome to the 2016-17 school year. Thank you for the opportunity to serve our students. I look forward to working and learning with you. Please contact me at [email protected] if you have a question, comment, or concern. Let’s make this school year the best! Go Mustangs!
