Dear Parents, Students, and Friends,
As the new principal of Natoma Station Elementary, I am honored to become a member of the Cheetah Community. I am excited to build upon the partnerships between all stakeholders to provide a world-class educational experience for Natoma Station students.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 17 years. In addition to being a classroom teacher for the first six years of my career, my experience was also shaped by serving as academic support coach at Rancho Cordova Elementary and Cordova Villa Elementary. In that capacity, I served teachers, students, and families by providing professional learning opportunities for teachers, instructional support for students, and parent engagement opportunities for families. Most recently, I served as vice principal at Williamson Elementary and Navigator Elementary. I am eager to bring my skills as an instructional leader to Natoma Station and to work in partnership with you to ensure each child’s academic success. We will support our district’s goals to provide all students with high quality classroom instruction and access to curriculum to promote college and career readiness. We will focus on character education initiatives, Common Core State Standards, ELD Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. We will use data to inform instruction through Professional Learning Communities and implementation of newly adopted curriculum, EnVision Math and Benchmark Advance ELA/ELD. We will also provide challenging and engaging enrichment opportunities for all students.
I am eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. As a parent of 19-year-old twins, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school-community connection. I am confident that we can meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive and nurturing environment. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. My door is always open and I welcome productive dialogue. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am confident that together, we can continue to make Natoma Station a wonderful place for our students to learn and grow.
Vickie Boudouris, Principal
