Our Principal

Hello Dailard Elementary School Community,

I am honored to serve as principal of Dailard Elementary, a school that represents a tight knit community tucked away in San Carlos, nestled next to a beautiful park where our children play. It has been a pleasure to be the principal of this beautiful campus for the past ten years.

As a San Diego native, I followed my father's footsteps into education. I began my teaching career as an elementary school teacher and parent educator. From my love of mathematics came the opportunity to teach Algebra and Geometry at the secondary level, which lead to my career path into educational leadership. Another love that has shaped my collaborative leadership style has been parenting my three amazing adult children and being a proud grandma to four fun loving grandchildren! I am lucky to have one of my grandsons be a part of our Dailard Dolphin community in kindergarten. I enjoy bringing all my experiences and love for children to the community at Dailard Elementary.

At Dailard Elementary, we are very fortunate to have a strong Dailard School Foundation (DSF) that works hard to provide financial support and enrichment opportunities for students and staff. The parents and teachers have created a positive school climate that resonates throughout the campus on a daily basis and at all the fun activities they do throughout the school year. We also have Dads Assisting Dailard Students (DADS), an active social organization for the betterment of education for the Dailard Elementary community that provides enrichment projects, activities, and events to all our children in the Dailard community. I am truly excited to be a part of this outstanding team at Dailard Elementary School and I look forward to continue to serve the learning community with passion and commitment.

I am dedicated to working in collaboration with the Dailard community and to be a partner with all of the students and their families in order to provide an outstanding learning environment. Together, we share a unified vision that all students can achieve academic excellence in an environment that fosters academic achievement, character education, safety, parent involvement, and a supportive community. Dailard has it all!!

Like educational philosopher, Robert M. Hutchins once said, The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
