Principal's Message

Dear GPS Families:


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  On behalf of the entire leadership team, I am thrilled to have you all as Gilroy Prep School Gators!  It is a tremendous honor to be part of this amazing staff, dedicated to teaching your children. I love being a Navigator because I get to be part of a community of learners who embrace the idea of continuous improvement.  All of our staff members put their hearts and souls into ensuring that our Navi students are successful academically, socially, and emotionally.  We celebrate our students’ success, and work relentlessly to support them to achieve their fullest potential. 


I joined the Gilroy Prep team in 2011 as founding second grade teacher, and knew within my first day on the job that I had found my home. It’s been so wonderful learning and growing alongside our students, parents, and staff these past eight years, and I feel so grateful to continue this journey with you as your principal. 


Along the journey, I had two wonderful children of my own, now ages five and two. Being a mother has made me even more dedicated to our Navigator mission. I want every single student at GPS to have the same opportunities and successes I wish upon my own children. 


I look forward to seeing all of you on campus and am looking forward to a great year!
