Principal's Message


Dear Parents and Guardians,


It is my honor to serve you as the Principal of MGE.  I attended MUSD schools and graduated from BGHS, Pomona College, Claremont (B.A.), USC School of Public Administration (M.P.A.)  and USC School of Law (J.D.).  I grew up in the City of Commerce and have been a classified employee, teacher, and administrator in MUSD.  I have served as Principal of Potrero Heights Elementary, Eastmont Intermediate, and Rosewood Park School.


Our goal is to continue to provide the BEST EDUCATION possible for our students.  I am fortunate to join a great staff and community where there has been a long tradition of EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE.  We will work together to provide a safe, secure, and clean campus for our students.  I want to thank all parents for your warm welcome and support as we continue to promote MGE PRIDE with positive student expectations (MTSS-B), the fun Garden Club, Student Academic Interventions, and AVID schoolwide.  I want to thank our PTA for providing field trips and activities for our students.
