I am humbled to serve the Omar E. Torres Elementary School community! Torres has long been a cornerstone school within the Acero Schools network. To continue that legacy of excellence is an exciting challenge! I have served as an administrator within Acero Schools for four years, having previously served as principal at the Cisneros campus. Through my time in the classroom and while working in a nonprofit organization serving children with special needs, I have learned to see all people as valued and valuable. It is through this lens that I have effectively been able to navigate change management and the relationship building process wherever I've been.


Now at Torres, I look forward to leading the Wildcats! We remain commited to ensuring that our students feel welcomed and supported all while receiving a top-notch education. We honor our past by acknowledging where we are. Strategically, we will make progress toward our goals. To lead this work is to change a generation of learners, discerners, and doers. We lean on our 6 core values to ensure that students and their experience are always our north star.
