A Message from Principal Rodriguez:
“Being a principal makes me happy because of the relationships I get to build with everyone in the building. I get to see every student in their classroom, interact with them, and watch them grow. I get to learn about staff members and support them in any way possible. Most of all, I am happy that I get to work and serve in the community where I grew up. I am passionate about education because it has been my avenue of success. I hope every student finds success in education, leading them to find something they love doing.”
