Our Principal

August 24, 2018

Dear Ocean Beach Elementary families,

I do hope all of you had an opportunity to relax and enjoy the summer. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful city! I spent most of the summer hanging around locally, hitting the beach often.

I am eagerly looking forward to another school year here at Ocean Beach Elementary.

This will be my sixth year as principal here and I can truly say I can't imagine working any where else. I was born and raised here in San Diego and started coming to Ocean Beach as a teenager. I love this commmunity and I believe people and families of this community make OB Elementary so special.

We have something very special here. All our staff go above and beyond to ensure your child receives a well rounded education that not only focuses on academics but also on how to be a postive, contributing member of society. We want all OBE students to make the world a better place for all.

This year we are implementing a hands on STEAM curriculum in kindergarten. This will eventually roll out to all grades as we will add a grade level each year.

Please know your children are in great hands here. Every teacher here is dedicated to the success of your child. Please note we will not be making any classroom changes during the first four weeks as we have to wait for our enrollment to stabilize. Also, this year the first day of school will be a minimum day. Dismissal will be at 12:15pm for all students.

I am excited to start another year here. See you soon!
