Meet the principal

  • Mrs. Deanda

    Dear Rodriguez Elementary Families,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Sylvan Rodriguez Elementary School. My name is Lulu DeAnda and I am looking forward to meeting each of you and getting to know you.


    Over the next few weeks, I will be spending a lot of time at Rodriguez Elementary getting to know the school’s community, and bringing myself up to date on our school needs and goals. I am eager to help continue moving Rodriguez along the path of excellence. 


    Professionally, I have been a Pre-Kinder, Kinder, 2nd, 4th & 5th-grade teacher.  My administrative experience includes high school Compliance Assistant Principal, middle school administrator and four years as an elementary Assistant Principal.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educator to your child’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.


    In my eyes, one of the most important aspects of my work as Sylvan Rodriguez’s principal is going to be building solid relationships with students, families, and teachers.  In addition to building strong relationships with all of you, it will be particularly important to me to make sure that every person feels safe at school. If you ever have concerns or questions about specific situations or procedures please do not hesitate to call or email me.  Communication is paramount in a school.  For this reason, I will always encourage you to contact your child’s teacher or myself with questions. 


    I feel very lucky to be following Ms. Martinez-Buley as the principal of Sylvan Rodriguez Elementary School. She took great pride in everything she did here and I can tell by the conversations we have had and the many great programs that are already in place.  I thank you in advance for welcoming me as a part of this great community!
