Message from Principal
Dear Foothill Middle School Families,
As the new principal of Foothill Middle School, I would like to welcome you to the start of the 15-16 school year! I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and look forward to working with the dedicated staff, parents, and community to provide an exceptional educational experience for Foothill students.
For those of you who I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. I have worked in the Azusa Unified School District for over 22 years as an assistant principal at Gladstone High School and a mathematics teacher at both Azusa High School and here at Foothill Middle School. In addition, I have coached cross country, basketball, football, track and field, softball at both the high school and middle school levels.
I recognize that the start of middle school can signal feelings of both excitement and anxiety. I want to thank you for entrusting your children to Foothill’s staff and assure you of our commitment to your child receiving a highly-engaging educational experience, in a safe and nurturing environment. We are excited to build partnerships with our families and support you, as your child begins the next chapter of their academic journey.
I am excited and honored to join the Foothill family for what I know will be an amazing school year. I have an open door policy, and welcome your questions, concerns, and input at any time.
Proud to be back as a Trojan,
