Dear Giano School Community,
Welcome! I am honored to join the dedicated and talented Giano community. As the principal, I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of this educational leadership team that focuses on student achievement and success. There is great excitement in Gladiator Country! We are proud to have been recognized as a "California Distinguished School" and a National AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) Demonstration Site.The spirit here is contagious and I am thrilled to be part of it! Our practice and philosophy is to work in partnership with parents, students, and community members. We will work hard to preserve and build upon the rich tradition and spirit of Giano Intermediate School. All of us at Giano want to make 2015-16 a successful year for your child. We are so fortunate to have the strong support of our active school PTSA and our families. We know that it takes school staff, families, and community members working together to provide dynamic learning experiences and a world class education for your children. Giano Intermediate School is dedicated to a rigorous student-centered program of academic excellence. Students, staff, and community members are dedicated to working together in partnership to develop and support capable, responsible, and productive members of society. I pledge to work tirelessly to ensure we accomplish this goal!
