Welcome to Wanda Hirsch Elementary School

Home of the Patriots!

At Hirsch, we want to make sure all students feel safe and comfortable, while being challenged with new learning. Our Mission Statement states, with integrity and compassion, Wanda Hirsch Elementary School promotes a commitment to personal academic excellence, while empowering each individual to strive for and embrace the character, knowledge and problem solving skills necessary to facilitate positive changes in our diverse world. We take our Mission Statement very seriously. We have a terrific staff!  Our teachers collaborate with each other and are life-long learners.  Our staff is dedicated to providing not just engaging learning opportunities, but with a great overall school experience.
A goal of mine is for students to enjoy learning.  I want them to think, solve problems, grow from mistakes made, and build perseverance.  Students receive rigorous and engaging lessons, which will build upon each other, to help prepare them for middle school, high school, and eventually college and/or career. 
My educational experience began very early on. Both of my parents were teachers with Tracy Unified School District. I was an elementary teacher at McKinley Elementary School for 11 years, an assistant principal 6 years at Wanda Hirsch, Villalovoz and George Kelly Schools, and have been a principal 12 years ~ 9 years at Jacobson Elementary, and this is my 4th year back at Wanda Hirsch. Hirsch Elementary has a special place in my heart for many reasons, one of which: Wanda Hirsch was my 4th grade teacher.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, a Master of Science degree in Instructional Leadership with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction and a Clear Administrative Credential. I have also taught teachers through Loyola Marymount University for several years.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, home improvement projects, and traveling- especially near the ocean. I also love to read, swim, and go to concerts and the theater.
As your principal, I look forward to each day strengthening the relationships that have been built with all of our wonderful students, families and staff. Please be an active part of your child’s school experience.  Attend the many family events that our school offers, and be involved. Communication between school and home is extremely important, so please stay connected and informed. I look forward to working with Hirsch families and feel honored to be placed in this position.
