Community partners treated every student at Rancho Cordova Elemetnary School to a spectacular surprise on Wednesday, Dec. 17:
Note: Last week’s tragic loss of seventh-grader Ronin Shimizu has prompted community-wide reflection on how we work together to respond to bullying. At the Dec. 11 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Deborah Bettencourt provided remarks about areas the District has already identified for improvement. She also proposed the formation of a task force that will explore long-term solutions, and a formal call for volunteers will come after Winter Break.
Thanks to the generous contribution, students and programs throughout Folsom Cordova will continue to have the resources they need to succeed.
I grew up the middle of five children in Sunnyvale CA and started my teaching career at Bret Harte Middle School, teaching 7th grade English and Social Studies in the San Jose Unified School District. My last position was at Ygnacio Valley High School as Vice Principal where I spent the last six years. At Ygnacio Valley, I headed the Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports team; I was the administrator in charge of athletics and activities as well as handled master schedule and discipline. I have an open door policy and look forward to working with you to serve the needs of our students and community.
I live in Citrus Heights with my wife and our three children, Annalise, 16 Victoria, 9 and Carter, 3. They keep us very busy with Completive soccer, swim team, Girl Scouts and general run of the mill toddler mischief.
