I am honored to serve you as the new principal of Ortiz Middle School. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership. I started my career in education as a math teacher and since then I held various positions at the high school level including Assistant Principal, Dean of Students, and Interim Principal.
As I assume the awesome responsibility of providing the very best education possible to the children of this community, I want to express my gratitude to former principal Mrs. Noelia Longoria and all the faculty and staff of Ortiz Middle School for leaving a legacy of academic excellence in our school. My charge is now to build upon the success of previous years and to take Ortiz to levels of academic excellence never before obtained. Ortiz is a good school but in the near future Ortiz will make the jump from good to great.
This goal can only be achieved with the full participation and collaboration of every member of our community. I extend, therefore, an invitation to all parents and to every member of our community to join the efforts of our faculty and staff in the noble mission of making Ortiz the best middle school in our district and our state.
