Principal's Message

Dear Zephyr Lane Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am so thrilled to be back in the Fairfax School District and at Zephyr Lane Elementary!  I was blessed to work in the Fairfax School District for 17 years and served many different roles before taking a position as a Vice Principal and then a Principal in the Rio Bravo Greeley Union School District in 2018. When the opportunity arose to come back to Zephyr Lane this year to serve as Principal, I knew in my heart this was where I wanted to be.  I am so excited to be back with my Fairfax family and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!
Our staff is so excited to begin another year at Zephyr Lane.  We will continuously strive to build a strong school culture that focuses on academics, school connectedness, and building a strong school community.  Parent, student, and community involvement is vital to us. Our goal is to partner with you to give students the best education possible. Throughout the year you will be invited to many events  including our Family Picnics, Movie Night, Back to School Night, Open House, School Carnival, Literacy Night, Awards Assemblies, and other fun activities. I encourage you to get involved at our school by volunteering in your child’s classroom, participating in our Booster Club, joining our School Site Council, and participating in our English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC).  
As an educator, I am passionate about literacy and I am focused on meeting the needs of all students at Zephyr Lane Elementary.  With fantastic academic programs and a thriving school culture, I am confident students will have a wonderful  educational experience here. 
Welcome to Zephyr Lane! I look forward to partnering with you.
