I am excited to be the Principal of San Dimas High School.  I wake up  every morning fired up to help ignite a passion for learning in all of our  students.  I believe that every student deserves a high school that  cultivates an environment of high expectations while caring for the whole  student.  I know San Dimas is a great school where students can realize  their gifts, apply and develop their talents, and feel a genuine sense of  fulfillment for their contributions to the San Dimas community.

I grew up in Rialto, California and attended Eisenhower High School.
I graduated from the California State University of San Bernardino with a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education. I have a Master's Degree in Physical Education and Educational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University. I started my career teaching 4th grade for five years.  I then moved to teach high school PE at Eisenhower High School. My principal encouraged me to become an administrator. I was hired as an Assistant Principal at Eisenhower. Five years later I was given the opportunity to become the first alumni principal of Eisenhower High School.

I have five children.  My oldest, Astin, graduated from Johnson and Wales University in Denver and currently lives with his wife and dogs in Boise, Idaho.  My oldest daughter, Nicole, graduated from the University of Nevada at Reno. She now lives in Reno, Nevada with her husband and two dogs. Mikinize is currently working and attending Chaffey Junior College.  Victoria just graduated from high school and lives in Boise, Idaho. My youngest daughter Alexis is a junior at Eisenhower High School and plans to go into the military when she graduates.

San Dimas High school has the potential to be the best high school in California.  I am ready to work hard to make that goal a reality. There are three types of people in this world, people that make it happen, people that watch it happen, and people who wonder what happened. At San Dimas, we want to make it happen!

That is correct, the mascot is an artichoke. I received my bachelor's degree at Azusa Pacific University in Physical Education. Then my master's degree and administrative credential at Azusa Pacific University.
 
I have four kids. Three of my kids graduated from San Dimas High School. My oldest Tyler is a Lineman for the California/Nevada. My daughter, Hannah,  attended the Air Force Academy and is now married in Mississippi. Ben is attending Cal Poly Pomona. My youngest, Jacob is a senior at SDHS.

It is my honor to serve as Assistant Principal at San Dimas High School. San Dimas High School is destined for great things and I am so excited to be a part of it. I look forward to helping students and staff to reach for the great expectations San Dimas High School has established. Getting involved is the best way to reach these expectations in the quick four years of high school. Four years that students remember for a lifetime.

I am excited to serve the students, parents, and staff of San Dimas High School as Assistant Principal. I have previously served as an instructional coach, department chair, and math teacher in the Monrovia Unified School District and Los Angeles Unified School District spanning 13 years. 

I grew up in El Monte and graduated from Arroyo High School. I earned my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and master’s degree in education from UCLA. Go Bruins! I completed my administrative credential at Cal Poly Pomona and am also currently mentoring new students in the Preliminary Administrative Credential Program as a consultant. I love all new and future Bronco graduates! 

My wife, Genevieve, is also a proud educator as an elementary special education teacher. We are raising two beautiful girls, Leanne and Jordan. With the help of two grandmothers, our family does our best to cultivate a trilingual and tricultural household of English, Chinese, and Spanish. We are a family that loves hiking on weekend mornings, enjoying a family movie night with plenty of popcorn, and experimenting with baking sweets.

I absolutely loved, loved, loved my high school experience. I learned to be an avid runner by completing two marathons on the marathon team. I learned to be an active community member through volunteering in Key Club. In addition to excelling in academics, I intend for every San Dimas High student to find their life passions through the many wonderful clubs, sports, and organizations on campus.
