From the Principal

over 2 years ago

Dear MLRES families

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Manuel L. Real Elementary. I am honored to have been selected by the school committee as well as the Val Verde Unified School District leadership.

I am very excited to join the MLRES team and eager to contribute to the education and success of our students. With over ten years of experience in the field of education serving as an elementary and high school teacher as well as a professor in higher education, I am confident that I can use my knowledge and skills to enhance the great work happening at MLRES. With five years of school administration experience, I know that with your support, we can achieve much more collaboratively than I would otherwise.

I am certain that collectively, with your continued support and with the MLRES staff's preparation, dedication and expertise, we can take our students to achieve new heights in excellence and academics.

I believe that good schools achieve success because they have great teachers that are focused and are committed to the community they serve. Great schools have these great teachers and have one more component, their communities/parents are involved in the learning of their children. I would like to encourage you all to talk to us to find out more about what you can do to get involved and collectively turn Manuel L. Real Elementary into a great school!
