Meet the Principal

Greetings and welcome to Las Brisas Academy! 

I am thrilled that you have decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff, and programs we have to offer. Las Brisas Academy has a reputation of being a compassionate, caring and welcoming environment that supports each student in becoming curious, confident, problem-solvers! 

Each new school year is full of excitement and new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole. We are committed to providing innovative lessons to our students which incorporate technology that supports our students’ needs as 21st century learners.

Our school community is dedicated to provide our students with a well-rounded educational experience. Our teachers focus on providing a rigorous and engaging curriculum aligned to our Arizona State Standards.Our students also have the opportunity to engage in before, during, and after-school instruction in connection with our signature program, Visual and Performing Arts. 

Las Brisas Academy allows for students to engage in the Dual-Language Program grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. In the Dual-Language program, students spend half of their day learning in Spanish, and the other half students learn in the English language. The Dual Language Immersion program has numerous benefits on top of our world-class education, including gaining fluency in a second language and enhancing communication skills. This program is optional for all of our students. 

I am honored to be the Instructional Leader for a diverse and passionate school community who focuses on doing what is best for children, each and every day. I invite you to come visit Las Brisas to take a look inside our classroom and see the dedication and heart that our teachers show each day. 

To our current families, thank you for partnering with us in your child’s development and education. We promise to partner with you, as your involvement is an essential component of the academic success of your child.I encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get engaged in all that Las Brisas Academy has to offer. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!

I look forward to spending each day growing our ‘curious, confident problem solvers’ through the rich programs and exceptional teaching that Las Brisas Academy has to offer.
