Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I feel privileged to be beginning my 23rd year with Bellflower Unified and I am honored to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.

I have always been proud to be a part of the BUSD community. I have seen BUSD mature and grow over the years and I am excited to see what the future holds for our students, families, employees, and the community. BUSD has worked hard to meet the needs of our students and community and it shows. The District and several of our schools earned the Gold Ribbon designation, we have won multiple Title I Achievement Awards, our high schools are California Democracy Winners and Bellflower High School received distinction as a California Democracy High School. Our students take active roles in their school and the community, evidenced by our strong partnership with our community based service clubs, including Kiwanis, Rotary, Soroptomist, and the Lions Club.
I am excited to work with our dedicated Board of Education to build a vision for BUSD. Despite our achievements, we recognize that we must continue to grow and offer relevant opportunities for our students. We have more to do and we can only do it with all district staff working together with our parents and the community to ensure all students have the preparation and opportunity to succeed in school and life. I know that it is only through us working together that we can create the sense of community and provide the education that all our students deserve and desire. I look forward to continuing to work with each of you as “We Build Futures”.
With BUSD Pride,
Superintendent of Schools
