Estoy muy emocionada, es un sueño hecho realidad ser parte de una comunidad que ayudó a moldearme en la persona que ahora soy.   Estoy comprometida con el aprendizaje continuo con el fin de facilitar y promover el más alto rendimiento de los estudiantes, crear y establecer relaciones, resolución de problemas y promover una cultura de aprendizaje de altas expectativas a través de un espíritu de excelencia.  También es con gran orgullo que continuare la tradición de la escuela y asegurarme que nuestros estudiantes cuenten con la fundación y experiencia educacional que necesitan en su camino hacia la preparación para la universidad y carrera.  Estoy segura que con la colaboración de equipo, compromiso y dedicación a nuestros alumnos, podremos ayudarlos a continuar produciendo alto rendimiento académico.   

 

Estoy orgullosa de haber graduado de la escuela Milby High School en nuestro distrito de Houston ISD y de la Universidad de Houston Clearlake.  Mi puerta siempre estará abierta y sus consejos en lo que respecta a nuestros objetivos educativos son bienvenidos.  Siéntase libre de mandarme un correo electrónico, llamar o pasar por la escuela para discutir cualquier preocupación, sugerencias o ideas para hacer De Zavala la mejor escuela en nuestro distrito.  Somos la "joya oculta" en el Este de Houston y estamos decididos a "brillar y brillar" con su apoyo, colaboración y trabajo en equipo.  

 

Gracias por confiar y permitirme ser parte del viaje educacional de su niño.
