Please Welcome Bernal's New Assistant Principal!

I would like to introduce myself to the greater community of the Oak Grove School District. It is with great honor to be selected as the Assistant Principal of Bernal Intermediate School and to be working with Principal Dr. Jamal Splane. I’m very proud to be working in a district that has such rich tradition, outstanding teachers, and a clear vision from upper management.

I’m a San Jose native, and throughout my educational and athletic career, I appreciated the valuable lessons I learned from my community. I attended Archbishop Mitty High school, and upon matriculation, I received a full scholarship to play football at the University of Hawaii. After my career was completed, I returned to the San Jose community to pay it forward through working with special needs children and at risk teenagers.

I soon furthered my education by attending Cal State East Bay and graduating with honors with a bachelors in U.S. History. I quickly became a teacher at the Evergreen School District and taught for six years. As I pursued my M.Ed. from San Jose State University,  I also co-founded a New Tech Network School within the Evergreen district. After my seventh year in education, I was promoted to the Assistant Principal position in which I was able to reduce suspension rates, enrich school culture, and build relationships with the surrounding community.

I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with your students here at Bernal Intermediate. It takes an entire community to raise a child, so let’s stand together and help them to achieve greatness.
