About our principal
It is with sincere pride and honor that I welcome you all back to the 2016-2017 school year as your principal. My goals for this year are simple, yet extremely important to me; get to know the students and families of Cactus View and to continue to journey on the incredible path of academic success and achievement that is upheld at Cactus View. I will work hard to build relationships with all the students and community so I can successfully support the needs, challenges, and desires of each child, faculty member, and parent while providing a positive learning environment for academic and personal growth. Children are my passion and I’ve devoted my life to support children in the best way possible and I bring that passion to the Cactus View Family. I will encourage, nurture, and support all students while fostering environments where stakeholders can learn and grow. I am dedicated to working with all members of the Cactus View community including teachers, support staff, parents, and community members. My pledge will be to carry on with our goals of challenging students to academic and personal excellence through rigorous instruction, best practices, and innovative assessments to measure growth of standards mastery. We will also, cultivate values of kindness, respect, and responsibility in all our students through our Positive Behavior Interventions and classroom interactions. This passion along with my drive, commitment, leadership, and experience gives me the great privilege to lead the community of Cactus View to continued success and academic achievement in the 2016-2017 school year. I wish you the best of luck in the coming school year! Go Jackrabbits!
