Principal's Message

Welcome to Rancho Tehama Elementary School, home of the Raccoons! Our staff is dedicated to education and providing the best learning opportunities for your students.

I want to thank you for sending your students to Rancho.  Our staff understands the “whole child”.  We believe in working with families as a team to provide the best support for each and every student at Rancho.  We utilize Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) as way to maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.  PBIS supports the success of ALL students.

For those of you I have yet to meet, I was assistant principal of Woodson Elementary and West Street Elementary during the 2014-2015 school year.  Prior to joining Corning Elementary School I worked in Chico as a teacher for several years.

I am excited to be a part of the Rancho Family. It will be a fantastic year!  Please feel free to reach out and share your comments and concerns with me.  I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Proud to be a Raccoon!
