Welcome to STEAM Academy!

Strive to be the best FOR the world, not IN the world.”

Welcome to STEAM Academy!

I am excited to begin this 2021-22 school year. We look forward to being back together on campus for in-person learning with our first day of school being August 11, 2021. 

At this time, the guidance from the County Department of Public Health and the San Diego County Board of Education is that all staff and students are required to wear masks while indoors. Students will be able to unmask while outside and during PE. As always, our highest priority is to ensure that our students continue to learn and make academic progress. 

My mission as your principal is also my passion: to maintain and grow a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging while helping students to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially even in these unusual circumstances. It is critical to every student’s success that they promote from middle school with the skills necessary to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams. 

It is important to me to have an open-door policy and ongoing, open communication.  I know STEAM to be a highly engaging, wonderful experience for students and I want to make sure you and your student have a positive experience and get the most out of what our school has to offer. 

As the above quote states, “Strive to be the best FOR the world, not IN the world,” I am a firm believer in working together for the betterment of all our student’s lives.  There is no “I” in TEAM: Together Everybody Achieves More.  I am looking forward to this unique year and working with your students and you.
