Principal's Message

Welcome to Linda Vista and the 2022-23 School Year!

 I am so excited to be starting my 2nd year at Linda Vista this year. This is my sixth year as an OUSD Principal, and I have been in school administration for three additional years. Prior to administration, I was a teacher and instructional coach for 18 years. Personally, I have lived in the Orange community for 17 years, and was an OUSD parent until both of my girls graduated from Villa Park HS. My husband is also a product of OUSD, as an Orange High grad. 

At Linda Vista, we teach our students to Be Safe, Be Kind, and Be Responsible in all areas at school. This year we are placing a greater emphasis on building students' character, along with their academics. Each month we will have a character trait that we focus on and our hallway bulletin boards will show reminders of how we can demonstrate good character. We will focus on the idea that we are "Better Together" in all areas of life, supporting and caring for each other and enjoying our community. 

Linda Vista has a great legacy of Civic Learning and responsibility, and we will continue that great tradition in learning about our history, celebrating our country and Veterans, and supporting our community through donation drives.

I look forward to having another great year at Linda Vista!
