Principal's Message

Welcome to Linda Vista and the 2023-24 School Year!

 I am so excited to be starting my 3rd year at Linda Vista this year. This is my seventh 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 18 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' academic skills through the use of AVID strategies (Advancement Via Individual Determination). We are excited to be working together as a staff to add these great learning opportunities to our already strong instructional practice.

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!
