Dear Sequoia families,

Welcome to our students, families, and staff! 

It is my hope that our students take the opportunities that Sequoia Middle School gives each of them and they learn to stretch themselves not only in their academics, but also as individuals. I have spent almost 20 years at the secondary level and I have enjoyed the six years at Sequoia Middle School. We have a talented group of teachers and staff members here to support all our families.  Remember, we will all make mistakes, but learning from them is crucial to growth.

A partnership between parents/guardians and the school is also very important to the success of your student. We encourage families to stay involved with their students academic journey at Sequoia. Please utilize the many ways to keep in communications with your students teachers/counselors. Parent Q Portal is another platform parents can use to keep an eye on their students progress in their classes. I send out weekly emails with not only calendar reminders but also behavior expectation reminders for our students. Please update your email contacts to ensure you are receiving the school communications. I began my educational career at Newbury Park High School (nine years), where I served as a School Counselor, then moved into administration and served in the roles of Dean of Attendance, Dean of Activities, as well as the Assistant Principal of Instruction. After, I had the privilege of being the Assistant Principal at Century Academy and Independent Study (four years) where I worked with the Alternative Programs in CVUSD.  When the opportunity came to return to the Newbury family, I knew Sequoia was where I wanted to be. I have now been at Sequoia for six years. At Sequoia, we model a culture where we recognize how important it is to “Take care of yourself, take care of each other and take care of this place”.Remember, at Sequoia, we are “ALL IN”
