Principal's Message

I am honored to serve as the Principal at Escobar/Rios Elementary "Home of the Achievers". I come to this position with seventeen years of experience in the field of education. My experiences include the following: teacher, Instruction & Assessment Strategist, Bilingual Strategist (Central Office), and Elementary/Junior High Assistant Principal. I am looking forward to an exciting academic year of learning and growing with our students.
My main goal is to ensure that we provide each one of our students a high quality education in a safe and supportive learning environment. I am a firm believer that it takes a village to raise a child. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all play a crucial role to ensure the success of every child.
At Escobar/Rios Elementary, we recognize that a strong parent/educator and partnership make a great difference in our students’ education. We ask that you continue to support us by guaranteeing the following best practices for your son/daughter:
-Attend school daily and arrive on time;
-Complete all homework assignments;
-Read daily to develop a love for reading and improve literacy skills;
-Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life; and
-Know that you expect him/her to succeed in school and be college ready.
Thank you for your commitment in your child’s education!
