Mr. C's career and family background

For those of you new to Courreges, this is my 19th year working as an administrator in the Fountain Valley School District. Prior to Courreges, I served as principal at Fulton Middle School from 2006–2011, principal at Moiola School from 2003–2006, and assistant principal at Masuda Middle School from 2001–2003. Prior to working in the FVSD, I was a middle school instrumental music teacher in the Long Beach Unified School District. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business/Economics and earned my Master's and administrative credentials from UC Irvine and National University. I have three children of my own: Brittany, 23; Miranda, 18; and Conner, 16.

I look forward to leading all of our students, teachers and parents through another rigorous and enriched year at Courreges Elementary School.
