Assistant Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members, 


It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter to our Mary Fay Pendleton community. I am truly honored to serve you in my role as Assistant Principal. I am looking forward to working with Mr. Frost, as well as the rest of our staff, in our efforts to do whatever it takes to advance the achievement of all students. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly rigorous and enriching school experience. The MFP community is a very special place and I am proud to be a bulldog!


 I have been a part of the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District for the past 8 years. During this time, I have had the opportunity to work as an elementary and middle school teacher. I was born and raised in Fallbrook and continue to live here with my husband, Scott and our son, Brady.


As an administrator, I believe in every child's ability to learn and thrive in a supportive and caring learning environment. Each day at school, your child will be supported academically, socially and emotionally, through a variety of focused, engaging and relevant experiences that meet the unique needs of each student.  At Mary Fay, we are committed to providing a well-rounded educational foundation for students so that they are prepared and ready to compete in today’s global society.  


Please feel free to communicate any celebrations or concerns you may have to share.  When we work collaboratively together, your child's educational experience will be enhanced.  I look forward to working with you to help maintain the high standard of student success and excellence that Mary Fay is known for.
