Rebels Get Real About Health
A few months ago, the Kashi company came and filmed a Teen Battle Chef class here at SLz. They used footage for a 3-minute video about the importance of providing access to “real food” to youth. Watch the video to see our SLz students, the SLz farm and SLz kitchen all featured to get across the message about "real food" for real health.

Greetings San Lorenzo Community:
It is with a full and overjoyed heart that I return “home” to San Lorenzo High, where I began in 1993 as a student-teacher in the English Department. It was here that I was groomed and nurtured as a teacher-leader. When it was time for my leadership outside of the classroom, I served as one of the youngest administrators in San Lorenzo USD at Royal Sunset with Donn Keith, increasing graduation rates by more than 100%. I had the drive to do something daring after those 3 years and embarked on an endeavor with a fellow Slz Teacher; we opened our own independent school (Grades 6 – 12) and non-profit organization in Oakland that focused on STEM and better learning outcomes for youth of color, resulting in 100% college-going rates. That work lasted almost 10 years and the success was directly related to community collaborations, effective programming, coaching dedicated teachers, and engaging parents on new levels.
With those achievements, I return to San Lorenzo High School in a spirit of service to grow our small learning communities, develop our common core work, engage parents more deeply, and impact student learning more powerfully.
I realize our journey ahead is just beginning, yet I am one who believes that the greater our task, the more important our mission. I believe that we have the synergy that is positioning us for HUGE success. I embark on this journey with you in the spirit and ethic of excellence, knowing that our success is not an option, it is a mandate – the children we serve are counting on it.
This is truly full-circle for me, and I am honored to be your educational leader and serve in the role of Principal. May we have a fruitful school year and spread our “Rebel Pride” by way of “Rebel Love” throughout the community!
“It’s a GREAT day to be a Rebel!”
