Dear Edgewater Families,
I am honored to start my 6th year as the principal of Edgewater Elementary. There is absolutely no other place I'd rather be than here with a school community that is caring and committed to do what is best for students.
For those who don't know me well, I want to share a little about my background.

I was born in Mexico City, and moved to the United States in 1978.  I am fully bilingual and bi-literate in Spanish and English, and stand for an equitable and excellent education for all. I value hard work, respect for all people, and collaboration between school, families and community. 


I have 28 years of experience in public education; ten years as a classroom and special education teacher, and the rest in coaching and administration. I have dedicated my entire career to working with diverse student populations in Title I schools.


I believe that all children have a right to receive an excellent education, and that it is our responsibility to ensure that every single student grows to their highest potential, To achieve this, schools must create a school learning environment that fosters a culture of trust and collaboration, builds talent, shared leadership, and promotes a never ending passion for personal and professional growth. My mission is to continue to create a school community  where we never stop reflecting and learning, always trying to find ways to challenge our thinking, ourselves, and one another; a community where children always come first, and we collaborate with respect to ensure that everyone's needs are met. 
I am here to serve our students, families and staff, and will do it with respect and grace. Let this school year be one of our best years yet!!

iSi se puede!
Katherine Chumacero
