August 28, 2013


Dear Parents/Students


As the new Principal of Hirsch Elementary School, it has been my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school community.  Hirsch Elementary enjoys a rich history of academic and cultural excellence that is the result of a collegial partnership between the school staff and parents who provide a diversity of experiences for the students.  I am truly honored to be appointed to this position and am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students. 


I have been a member of the Fremont Unified School District for the past 8 years. Prior to that I was employed in the San Jose Unified School District.  My educational experience includes classroom teacher, reading resource, and administration.  My educational background includes a B.A Degree from the University of Iowa, and a Master’s Degree from San Jose State University. I currently live in San Jose California. I am married to a wonderful man who is also an educator and have two beautiful daughters.  


The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level.  We believe that every child can achieve academic success.  To this end every child will be provided with quality instructional experiences which recognize, support and maintain high expectations for all students.


As your principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for your support, ideas, suggestions and involvement.  If you have not already done so I encourage you to join our team, our school family so to speak, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority.  I pledge to do my best to ensure that each child is challenged, nurtured and provided with a safe and simulating learning experience. 


As we work together during the year I invite you to stay in contact and let me know how you and your children are experiencing school.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a question or concern.   Through team work, open communication and a dedication to continuous improvement we can make this school a place children delight in and enjoy learning.
