Welcome back Woodruff Wolves to a fantastic 2018-2019 school year!

    As the new principal, I am honored to be joining this amazing team of dedicated teachers and staff.  I became part of the Bellflower Unified School District family in 2014 as the assistant principal at the Intensive Learning Center four years ago and recently had the opportunity to support Thomas Jefferson and Esther Lindstrom elementary schools. My journey to becoming an educator began in 1994 in the Hawthorne School District as a middle school paraprofessional, an elementary classroom teacher, and later a literacy coach in grades kindergarten through 5th grade.

    I look forward to working closely with the Woodruff staff to ensure that our students reach their full potential!   I cannot wait to celebrate and acknowledge each of our students’ academic efforts, achievements and watch them further develop their citizenship skills throughout the year.

    Kind regards,

    Evelyne Almada, M.Ed.
