From mountains high will come our spirit bold. Soon we will dream of golden days gone by; our love will never fade for L. A.

Fight Song: Go, Toppers go, or the green and the gold. On down, the field, may our battle cry be bold. Fight, fight to win. May our Victory begin! Go, Toppers go. And we’ll win, win, win!

Welcome back to Los Alamos High School for the 2017-2018 school year. I am energized by the opportunity to use my knowledge and experience to be the chief teacher and chief learner as the Los Alamos High School Principal in this incredible place. I have great appreciation for the academic work that happens at Los Alamos High School. At the same time, I take great satisfaction in being part of the development of the humans in our school. I see our school community as a family – complex, quirky, connected, and protective. I have felt very lucky to be a teacher and an administrator at LAHS, and I am amazed every day at the diversity of talent, perspective, and energy that is reflected in our students and staff. I am excited to have been selected as the principal, and I can’t wait to hit the ground running.
