On Monday, the Roseville girls golf team claimed their second consecutive CVC league title, edging out Whitney High to claim the championship. Kayla Kwong had the low score in the field and was the Leaguer MVP for the the second year in a row. Congratulations to Coach Fukuman and his amazing team as they head to the section championships on Monday.
Almost 2500 10th graders, hundreds of 11th graders and even a few 9th graders took the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) on Wednesday. This is the second year the district has paid for all sophomores to take the exam. The test provides both the student and the school a ton of feedback information that helps to guide the rest of their high school career. It is also a key part of our efforts to build a college prepared culture on every campus. Thanks to everyone who proctored tests, and who dealt with the inconvenience of giving up a day of instruction.
The Antelope High School Titans football team continues to roll. They are now 7-0 and ranked in the top 10 in the region after a heart pounding 35-34 win over Consumnes Oaks last week.
I have been working the phone banks for Measure D semi-regularly and each time find myself talking to gracious people who care deeply about our schools. Roseville is an amazing place. We are so fortunate to work and live in a community where our efforts and our schools are valued and appreciated.

Why did you choose RJUHSD? The primary reason that I came to RJUHSD was because I feel that the district's core values aligned perfectly with my own. As an advocate and proponent for social justice, I truly believe in every bit of meaning behind the RHS mission statement: "Working together, we will prepare every student for post-secondary education." I want to close achievement gaps and help each student have opportunities and choices in their future. I also firmly believe that collaboration is the only way we can make that mission happen. We, as teachers, administrators, counselors, parents, and other staff can shape the culture of the school our students attend in a multitude of ways. Also, I think that the combined intellect of everyone at our school will always be greater than the intellect of any one of us.
What are your interests, family, hobbies etc.? I love sports (both as a competitor and a spectator) and I love being outside. In my spare time, I like playing sports with my newest endeavor being learning to golf. I also enjoy going to SF to watch the Giants.
