Welcome to Kyrene del Norte, a Dual-Language Academy.  When you drop off your children in the morning at Norte, be prepared to say ‘Buenos Dias’ as you greet and meet with staff, friends, and families.

I am humbled and honored to serve as the Principal for the Norte school community.  My experience as an educator has been as a high school Spanish teacher, elementary bilingual teacher, middle school Spanish/ESL teacher, English Language Learner Specialist, Assistant Principal and Principal.  I am fortunate to have had a variety of experiences in school districts in Phoenix, Tempe and Cambridge, MA before coming to the Kyrene family.

I am a native of Nogales, AZ and grew up in a bilingual Spanish-speaking community.  I am the youngest of a family of five, two brothers and two sisters.  My wife and I are raising our three children in Tempe.  I attended Arizona State University where I obtained a Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees in Spanish Literature.  Go Devils! 

I know the 2016-2017 school year is going to be amazing! Working alongside a dedicated and committed staff and parents to best serve the learning needs of all Norte students.  It is my greatest joy to know that I will have an impact in preparing our students with an equitable and quality education.

I look forward to meeting each of you, working with you and your child to achieve greatness.  Please come by and visit us!  Bienvenidos a Norte!
