Hi! My name is Steve Elizondo, and I am thrilled and honored to be the principal at Golden Hill! This is my 5th year at the school. I love the school community, and interacting daily with so many COOL, kind students, teachers, and families.

I am passionate about education, and the positive development of ALL students. My CORE Values include Educating the Whole Child (socially/emotionally, physically, and academically), Collaboration, and working with students and teachers to create relevant, high-quality work. A positive culture is the foundation of all successful schools. I believe this can be achieved by getting to know the students, staff, and families, developing a strong social/emotional learning program, and treating everyone with the kindness, love, and respect we all deserve.

This is my 24th year in education. Beginning in 1996, I taught a 5th grade bilingual class at Chollas Elementary School for 8 years, then moved to High Tech High in 2008, where I taught a 7th grade Humanities class for 5 years. in 2011, I became the principal at High Tech Middle Media Arts. In 2016, I felt that it was a time for a change, and was fortunate to find a new home here at Golden Hill K-8.

I hope to continue adding to the GREAT things going on at the school. Specifically, I look forward to continue focusing on our Social/Emotional Learning Program, Dual Language ImmersionProject-Based Learning in the middle school, and working with students and teachers to develop deep conceptual understanding of mathematics concepts. Additionally, I am excited about our Engineering class, and other innovative projects and programs geared toward preparing our students for 21st century careers.

I am committed to helping all students succeed and enjoy life. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for reading this!
