Message from the Principal

Hello CDA Family,

   I am very honored to be your new principal and welcome all students and their families to CDA.  

   I come from a family of educators and years of experience working as a Middle School Science teacher, GATE Resource Teacher, AP mentor, High School Science teacher and Administrator.  I have two Masters Degrees from San Diego State University in: Curriculum and Instruction;  and Educational Leadership. I respect and value the community that surrounds and supports Cahuilla Desert Academy and the passion our families have for wanting the best  programs and academic successes for their child.  I believe that through collaboration, reflection and purpose we can continue to make CDA strong. Our staff continues to support the learning progress in every child and instill the expectations that they will need to feel confident and academically prepared for high school.  We at CDA are committed to College & Career driven students, Dedicated to Success, and Act Responsibly & Respectfully.  Together as Hawks, we will Soar to New Heights!
