A Message from Our Superintendent/Principal
Dear Yuba City Charter School Community:
I was appointed to the Superintendent/Principal position in July of 2022. Prior to my appointment I served Yuba City Charter as the Agriculture Teacher, ASB advisor, Career Technical Education Coordinator, and Vice Principal. I have over 20 years of experience in education ranging from elementary teaching, to career technical education, to leadership and administration.
I began my tenure at Yuba City Charter in the 2012-13 school year. I started as an Independent Study teacher and went on to begin the agriculture department. From there, I took on the challenge of advising the Associated Student Body. Today, as the leader of the school, I continue to be involved in the classroom and leading the Associated Student Body.
I have seen great growth in the school since the time that I first started here. We continue to add new positions and hire staff that are dedicated to meeting the needs of all of our diverse learners. The school has added to our facilities each year. We began by building a playground for our elementary students, then an Agriscience laboratory with stations for science experiments. Our first major construction project on this site was building a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Theatre. Elementary students and high school students are using this faciality to hone their skills in the Theatre arts. In the 2023-24 school year we opened the doors to the new CTE Agricultural Mechanics facility. Our Culinary Arts program received new industry standard equipment and is temporarily being housed until a permanent facility can be built. The next projects that are in the planning stages will be development of the land to the west of the school for student playing fields and a gym that will house our Culinary Arts program, athletics and cafeteria.
Here at Yuba City Charter we believe that students come first. Every decision is made with the best interest of students taking first priority. We truly believe in individualized education and make every effort to customize every student’s experience so that they are academically successful, have enriching experiences that touch upon many aspects outside of the regular classroom and that our graduates feel empowered to take control of their lives and make positive impacts on the community.
I take great pride in being the Superintendent/Principal of Yuba City Charter School. I look forward to working with students, our incredible certificated and classified staff, parents/guardians and the community to continue to develop our school and produce productive graduates.
