Welcome El Sereno students, families, and community!
My name is Ms. Martha Gomez and I am very excited to serve as your new principal.
I am honored to have been selected to join this wonderful school, which is known for its dedication to excellence and, more importantly, to children. While I have worked hard as a teacher, coordinator, and administrator over the past 20 years, I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend much quality time with your children—caring for them, getting to know who they are, their personalities, learning styles and interests. As a mother of two children, I understand the importance of celebrating their successes no matter how small or large. I will care for your children as if they were my own. It is my impassioned belief that showing them how much we care and showing them that they are the most important people in the world is directly responsible for helping them reach their highest potential. It is for these reasons that I will encourage them every day, let them know how much they are valued, and show them they have a special place in an excellent school that will guide their academic journey to be college and career ready!
Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I also look forward to the work we will do together. My goal is to ensure that all children are safe, healthy and happy so that they can learn as much as they can and have the best educational experience possible. I am so thankful to be given the opportunity to bring all that I have learned and use my experiences as a way to help contribute to the success of your wonderful community.
El Sereno Middle School will excel and continue to soar in academics. Our program will allow students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world connections and career paths that will help prepare them to lead tomorrow’s workforce. Our program will help students see that the skills and lessons learned in their classes are inextricable to skills that are used and applied in various careers. I wholeheartedly believe that working as a team, as a family, as one community, our students will be able to recognize their transformative powers to create their own paths to success and light the way for generations to follow.
As the principal, I will ensure that a college and career atmosphere motivates all students to enliven the spirit, energy, and vitality of El Sereno Middle School. Having a college-career outlook will help address academic challenges and create a safe, welcoming environment for every student on campus. I will also have an open-door policy for teachers, students, and parents. Feel free to come by and say hello. The more I know the better I can help serve our community. It is my duty to serve as your principal and build relationships. I look forward to meeting you! Let’s get ready for a great year!
