Principal's Message

Dear Aztec Families,

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Palm Desert High School. To start, I am a product of Desert Sands Unified School District and a 1997 Palm Desert High School graduate. I grew up here in Palm Desert and currently live in our community with my husband and two daughters. I hold my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Southern California and I have a Masters in Educational Administration from California State University, Northridge. As the 2022 - 2023 school year begins, this will mark my twenty-second year as an educator and I know that it will be nothing short of amazing. I spent many years as a Teacher Specialist in Glendale, CA and the majority of my career committed to a focus on best first instruction to increase student success. Most importantly, I served as Assistant Principal at PDHS over the last three years and I am confident that my transition into my new role as Principal will be seamless and timely.

I take great pride in being an Aztec Alumni and will work collaboratively with our staff to ensure that each student thrives and finds success at PDHS. Being committed to high expectations for students and ensuring that each student has access to rigorous coursework to best prepare them for college and/or future career remains my priority. Palm Desert High has many great traditions and has an incredible reputation of offering high level academic programs, athletics programs, activities and programs in the arts. My mission is to ensure that we continue that path and continue to expect excellence in all of these areas.

I am looking forward to meeting you and working together to continue the traditions and legacy that have always made Palm Desert High School the school of choice in the Coachella Valley, and a reputation as a top school in the county and state. I am confident that we have the most talented teaching and support staff to offer a wide range of academic and extracurricular opportunities. Our school has a program for every student, which will challenge them and prepare them for excellence.

Again, I am excited for this wonderful opportunity and look forward to our work together in order to serve the students at PDHS.
