Principal's Message

I have had the privilege of being a part of the CVE Family for many years and am grateful for the opportunity I have been given to continue serving this amazing community as principal.  At CVE, the students are the focus of our efforts.  Our teachers and staff cultivate an environment where students achieve and believe in themselves and their school.  I am excited to be a part of a school community where family members are visible and actively engaged, and are an integral component of our school dynamic.  Your input and support will be critical to my leadership, the teaching and learning environment and above all to the success of your child in our school.  Working together as a community to support our children sets the foundation for developing our students into life-long learners.

Castro Valley Elementary School supports, fosters and reinforces CVUSD’s Core Values. We are committed to:

  • Empowering students to thrive in their own academic journey.
  • Embracing the gifts and talents of all students so they may pursue academic excellence.
  • Developing a team who plays an active roll in students' academic achievements, social and emotional well-being, and makes positive contributions into our students' lives.
  • Providing safe, inclusive learning, and staff are welcomed and treated with kindness, respect, and dignity.
  • Uplifting students through access, equity, diversity, anti-racism, and human rights.
  • Engaging all community voices to participate in supporting independent, capable, and compassionate future leaders.

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
