Message from the Principal

Dear Family of Julia de Burgos,


I am looking forward to the 2014-2015 school year for what will be a fantastic journey for the students, families, staff, and entire community of Julia deBurgos School, K-8.   My name is Maritza Hernandez and I was recently appointed the principal of Julia de Burgos School. I am honored to be working in the same community that I grew up in. I have worked as a teacher and administrator in a nearby charter school and believe in setting high expectations, consistency and a clear focus on our vision and mission.


By building relationships and creating partnerships with all members of the school community within the building and surrounding area, we will foster a love and desire for learning in all of our students.


I sincerely thank you in advance for welcoming me to the Julia de Burgos family and look forward to a great year. If you ever have a concern or questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
