Dear Biggs Elementary School Students and Families,
My name is LaQuita Ulrich and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Biggs & Richvale Elementary Schools. I am very passionate about education and look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging and high quality educational experience. I grew up in Yuba City and obtained my first teaching position in Marysville Joint Unified School District. Over the past 19 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, yet my most important duty is to be that of a child advocate. Prior to my service as an administrator, I served as an elementary and middle school teacher for 10 years. I will spend time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. It is important to celebrate their successes, and let them know that they are valued within the school community.
Not only am I excited to be working with the students, and staff but I look forward to the work we do together. We are all in this together and I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day.
My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they can achieve their highest learning potential. Looking at the whole child has always been my philosophy since I began my career in education. For students to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners, it takes a partnership of committed administrators, teachers, parents, support staff, community members and students. It is apparent that this belief is shared within the Biggs Unified School District where the core values are: Academic Excellence, Respect for Human Differences, Cooperative and Caring Relationships, and Commitment to Community.
Once again, I am so thankful to have this opportunity, and want to thank the Governing Board for placing confidence in me as principal. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. I will start on Monday, September 11th, please feel free to stop by to say hello or you can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
LaQuita E. Ulrich
Principal, Biggs Elementary School
