The first full week of school has gone very smoothly. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you I have not yet had the pleasure to meet. I am delighted to be the newly appointed principal to Dove Hill School. I have had the opportunity to meet many of you and am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you. I possess multiple years of K-12 experience serving as a special education teacher, school advisor, high school associate principal with East Side Union High School District and most recently 13 years as administrator/principal with Evergreen School District.
I look forward to sharing my ideas, skills and talents with the Dove Hill Community and working as a partner with all of you.
I anticipate a fun filled year that focuses on high academic achievement implementing 21st Century skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication. We will continue to work on character development skills with the support of Soul Shoppe strategies. Together, with you as our partner, I look forward to watching your children soar academically, socially and emotionally.
My door is always open. Please feel free to stop by and/or make an appointment with me to discuss your ideas or just to introduce yourself.
Linda Mora, Principal
