My Students

What makes a student great? Is it their grades? Is it their GPA? I believe it is so much more than scores and numbers. Greatness can be measured in correlation with happiness, as students are heard and respected. The greater their happiness, the more they shine, and the greater they become.

From our Robotics team to our Golf team, our students reflect the melting pot of ideas, interests, passions, and backgrounds that make our country so diverse and interesting.

Student input, involvement, leadership, and collaboration are highly encouraged at Coronado. Our students help each other with free food pantries and clothing closets; they take leadership in clubs and organizations; they win recognition in everything from sports to arts to academics. Our students are faced with modern challenges, and I'm so proud of the way they face those challenges and shine bright!

My Project

Albert Einstein once said, "The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library."

The library is the hub of the school; the place where learning is expanded, exploration is encouraged, and assistance can be found in human, electronic, or written form.

Although we get several hundred students coming through our library doors every day, we do not have the space or equipment needed to optimize their individual nor group learning. We are currently redesigning the layout of the library to utilize the space better for our students, and in doing so, we hope to fill the new space with both modular and collaborative type furniture.
