Mary Star of the Sea Elementary has a very special place in my heart. After a decade in law enforcement, I began to substitute here in 1999 while completing my studies at Loyola Marymount University. I taught History on the junior high level, acted as coach and Athletic Director, as well as Vice Principal, across a dozen years, starting in 2000. My wife Melissa and I have had the pleasure of watching our two children grow and excel through MSSE over the years. Now, with an amazing opportunity before me, am I here as Principal. I believe that working together, through the guiding principles of Faith - Family - Country we can lift our children to new heights and secure for them the opportunity for a successful future.
