WelcomeWelcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am beyond excited and honored to call Oak Park Unified School District my new home, and am ready to serve our Medea Creek community as the new principal.
I grew up in Thousand Oaks and I started my educational career with Conejo Valley Unified in 2006. I taught for over 11 years and have been an administrator for the last five. I most recently spent three years in LVUSD as A.E. Wright Middle School's Assistant Principal. All 16 years of my career in education have been in middle schools. And I love it! I believe strongly in education and that our young people are our future.
Our mission here at Medea is to prepare our students for their future as productive and responsible citizens, while pursuing academic excellence. We believe ALL students can learn and achieve success. We strive to support our students as unique individuals in a climate of care, and with respect for all.
Medea Creek has an amazing team of dedicated teachers, counselors and staff who work hard to provide a positive, safe and engaging learning environment for our students. We look to provide a network of support, with safety as our primary concern for every student and staff.
Middle school is truly a unique three years in a young person’s life. It can be challenging, amazing and also a time of so many changes for our kids, while they take those first steps towards independence, discovering who they are as individuals and how they fit into this world around them. We are here and excited to be a part of that growth and to support our students every step of the way.
I encourage our students to make connections at school, to be involved, to work hard and have fun! Learning something new and getting connected creates opportunities for students, and we want them to have as many options as possible before they start their high school career.
I would also like to thank you for your continued support of MCMS and please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to make your child’s receive the best education possible. I am looking forward to this school year and meeting you!
Best to you all and Go Panthers!
