Our School

Dear Gilbert Heights Families,

I am pleased to introduce myself to you as the GH Interim Principal for the remainder of the year. I have deep roots in the David Doulas community. I grew up in this community and attended Gilbert Park, Alice Ott and David Douglas High School. I returned to spend my career giving back to my community and have worked as a teacher, Principal and District Office Administrator in David Douglas for 32 years. It is with excitement that I am at Gilbert Heights to finish the  2019-20 school year.

I look forward to our partnership in your child’s education. As your partner, we will provide outstanding teachers, a caring and supportive staff, and a safe and fun learning environment for your children. As a staff we are committed to working together to inspire the value and love of learning in your children.

As principal, it is important for me that my staff, parents and students become partners in this journey that we have embarked upon. It is essential that all of us come to school every day happy and ready to give it our best. A positive attitude will enable us to become problem solvers in a fun nurturing environment.

Everything you can do to help your students is always appreciated. At Gilbert Heights, we see it as a privilege to educate and care for your student. We believe that all of our students will find success if our school and your families work together to help them advance academically, socially, and emotionally. Thank you for helping us to make Gilbert Heights a continuously improving place to learn and grow! We are looking forward to finishing the year strong!
