    Dr Fine

    Greetings Families,


         I am honored that the Newhall School District has appointed me as the new principal of Meadows Elementary School. With great enthusiasm, I will serve the school and work with its dedicated staff, parents and community members. Most importantly, I look forward to working with the children of Valencia and supporting the outstanding traditions of academic success at Meadows Elementary School.

         I come to Meadows Elementary School with fifteen years of service in education. For several years, I have had the experience of being a Principal at Horace Mann School located in Beverly Hills and an Assistant Principal for West Ranch High School located in Stevenson Ranch and Bishop Alemany High School located in Mission Hills. Before being an administrator, I received my doctorate in Education from the University of Southern California. Prior to being a site administrator, I had the pleasure of teaching English and sharing my love of literature, reading and writing at Arroyo Seco Junior High School located in the Santa Clarita Valley.

         It is clear that there are deep ties, a genuine love and care throughout the Valencia community for Meadows Elementary School. Its history of school leadership and excellent teaching inspires me and I will continue to support the educational traditions created by its talented staff and committed parents. My goal will be to uphold the high level of academic achievement that Meadows has attained and build upon the strong foundation that already exists. As a community, we will work together to provide daily opportunities to support educational, physical, and social-emotional growth of every child on campus.

         To share some personal information, I was born and raised in Southern California. My husband, Adam, who is also an Alumni of USC, is an excellent art teacher for the William S. Hart Union High School District. My son, Jacob, is nine years old and proudly attends a public school in our Newhall School District. He participates in sports year round, looks forward to the district orchestra program, and takes lessons in art. My family and I are devoted college football fans and play tennis together. I love reading, our dogs, Bruno and Coconut, and travelling with my family.

         Once the school year begins, please do not hesitate to stop by and say hello. You will see me throughout the campus and I will be present during the morning student arrival and after school dismissals. Your children will see me on the playground with them and in their classrooms. I hope to get to know the story and the hopes and dreams of every child on our campus. I welcome the opportunity to meet and forge a relationship with
    every student, staff and family member at Meadows Elementary School. To reach me, my email address is jfine@newhall.k12.ca.us
