  • Welcome our New Art Specialist: Keri White

    I am very excited to join the Del Mar Heights team as your new Art specialist! Art is incredible in that it helps children to make meaningful connections with projects that encourage critical and creative thinking, collaborative learning, and hands on engagement in the classroom. My goal is to expose students to artistic experiences that they will keep for a lifetime. I will be at Del Mar Hills on Mondays and Tuesdays, and here at Del Mar Heights on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. This is my ninth year teaching Art in an elementary school setting. I most recently taught Art at Heritage Trails Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma, and also at a contemporary art gallery with artists of all ages. I am excited to be able to continue my passion right here in my new hometown of San Diego. My door is always open, so please come check out the wonderful things our students are doing in Art this year! We are thrilled with the addition of Keri White to our extraordinary STEAM+ team.

  • Superintendent's November Message to the Community

    Just recently in mid conversation with a colleague, I was confronted with a simple, yet quite thought-provoking question that has made me stop in my tracks. Why do we control so much of the lives of our little people? I am guilty of this myself. When I was a teacher and principal, I made sure to tightly control much of children’s days to maintain a sense of order and productivity. As a parent, I monitor much of my child’s world, often jumping in too soon, when he would have remembered to say thank you on his own…or telling him exactly which writing tool he needs to use when he could have made that decision himself.
