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 our students.

    I want to thank you for sending your students to Rancho Tehama School.  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 a 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, this will be my third year as an administrator in the  Corning Elementary School District and my second year as Rancho Tehama Elementary school principal.  Prior to joining Corning Elementary I worked in Chico as a teacher for about 8 years.

    Please feel free to reach out and share your comments and concerns with me.  I look forward to seeing everyone again and working with you!


Proud to be a Raccoon!
