Meet Our Principal, Mrs. Vranesh
Meet Our Principal, Mrs. Vranesh (Mrs. V.)
I am a native of Arizona, growing up and graduating from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. I began my career in education 17 years ago in the Peoria Unified School District where I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. During that time I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I then joined the Paradise Valley Unified School District in 2012 teaching Kindergarten and first grade. In 2014, I was appointed Assistant Principal at a large elementary school Pre-K thru sixth grade. Before moving to California last year, I served as principal of Wildfire Elementary School for two years. Last year I was fortunate to join the Oak Park/Brookside team and am looking forward to continuing at Brookside this year.
I live in the Thousand Oaks area with my husband, Brian, our two daughters, Kamryne (7), Brooklyne (5), and our English Bulldog, Sammi. During my free time, I enjoy home decorating, outdoor activities, shopping and spending time with my family. I am also a diehard sports fan and love keeping up on the latest sports news. As a parent, I look for an effective learning environment that is warm, welcoming and positive. As a leader, I strive to provide those things in my school and see it as a crucial component to the success of a child’s overall well being. It is important to me that all children receive the education and school experience that I would want for my own kids. I look forward to working hard every day to help you achieve that goal.
At Brookside, myself and staff focus on the involvement of all stakeholders through enhanced interpersonal relationships by offering encouragement, being visible, inspiring and modeling positive behavior and professionalism and team-building. I enjoy working with teachers and support staff researching effective lesson designs, utilizing effective instructional strategies and finding ways to support all student achievement. I have a passion for honoring student achievement and celebrating accomplishments! WE ARE BUCKETFILLERS!
