I am honored and blessed to have received the 2014 PTSA Principal of the Year Award. The parents, teachers and students with whom I work with at Riverside Poly are truly extraordinary. What was especially meaningful about this award was seeing my colleague, Adrianna Curiel bring home the Volunteer of the Year Award. Her leadership and passion for our Poly students and community is nothing short of phenomenal. A special thanks to my wife and Poly PTSA members who came to support us.

Join this session to discuss successful strategies that drive continuous improvement in schools with high achieving populations. Facilitators are from some of the top performing schools in the state and have experience in the quest to accelerate excellence.

I had the opportunity to present at the California League of School's Common Core Summit in Lake Tahoe this past April. The presentation, "Building the Capacity of Teacher Leaders: The Core and Climate" was centered in our work at Poly and our efforts in transitioning to the Academic Core Standards. The presentation narrative is as follows:
Learn how to build powerful, energized school climate by using a system-based approach to building capacity within teacher-leaders. See how to frame your efforts through sound organizational principles and manage the change through targeted structures that focus on roles and responsibilities, parent and student outreach, and the importance of data teams.
