Welcome to O'Farrell!! I am the Principal for our Middle School Academy. My educational background includes a BS in Journalism from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from National University. I have teaching credentials for both multiple subject and K-8 English Language Arts, as well as an administrative credential. In addition to working with our middle teachers and students, I also handle all of our state and federal testing and I am also and AVID District Director for AVID Center. I have been lucky enough to work at O'Farrell since the fall of 2002. I taught our AVID classes until June of 2010. At that point, I moved out of the classroom and into the office for my current position.
