Principal's Message

Dear Families and Community Members,

I would like to introduce myself as the Interim Principal for Santa Margarita School. 

As an educator who views effective leadership as a means of providing opportunities and changing students’ lives, I am looking forward to serving the students, staff, and community of Santa Margarita School.

My over 10 years of administrative experience at both the elementary and secondary has given me the opportunity to demonstrate my leadership skills at all levels. I have worked collaboratively with teachers, staff, and the community to promote student success. 

My belief that education has the power to transform communities has compelled me to include parents and the community at large as meaningful partners in education. I have built strong relationships with community and business partners as a means to address basic areas of need so students can focus on their academics. I have secured several grants and donations, which include Walmart, Feeding San Diego, and The San Diego Food Bank to name a few of the over 20 different community resources. 

 My commitment to enhancing every student’s educational experience have been demonstrated by my continued learning and dedication to making decisions that positively affect students’ lives. As a dynamic, passionate, principle-driven leader, I look forward to having the opportunity to work alongside other enthusiastic educators at Santa Margarita School. 

My wife Krista and I have two beautiful children, Diego age 7, and Daisy Age 3. I have a 24-year-old son Dominic Jr. and a 26-year-old daughter named Frankie. Lastly, Dominic Jr. and his lovely wife Cynthia made us Grandparents to baby Zayden. I look forward to meeting all of you soon as my door is always open.
