Principal's Message

Welcome to Hemet Elementary, where “The Sky Is the Limit!”.  Hemet Elementary has a rich history in our community dating back 90 years to 1927.  After a seven year pause in operation, our beautiful new school site has been planned and built and will be ready for operation for the 2017-18 school year.   Currently in my 25th year as an educator, I most recently was the principal of Bautista Creek Elementary in Hemet Unified School District.  I am the proud mom of three children who have attended schools in the Hemet Unified School District and have several family members that actually attended Hemet El in previous generations!  I am humbled by the honor and privilege to serve as the principal at our newly designed school!  Whether you are a returning family, an alumni, or new to our school or school district, we welcome you to the family! 


We have a talented staff comprised of incredible teachers and support staff who are ready to support our scholars both academically and socially and create a culture of learning that will insure college and career readiness for all!  As you explore our website, you will find information on our three main school initiatives – Spanish/English Dual Immersion, STEAM/Project Lead the Way Curriculum, and AVID elementary school-wide.  I am very proud of the hard work and dedication of our teams in creating a culture focused on a growth mindset and innovation.


Hemet Elementary is an inclusive school and we welcome you to join in our efforts to build our community teams that will include PTA, School Site Council, ELAC and more! 


I enthusiastically welcome your personal visits to school, telephone calls, or emails to discuss any ideas or concerns you may have in support of your children. 


I look forward to meeting and working with you and your children as we continue embark on this journey to, “Bring our history into the 21st century.”
