• Principal's Message

    Greetings Mustang Families,

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  I am honored to serve the students, families and community as the principal of Santa Margarita School.  I look forward to partnering with you as we continue to navigate these ever-changing and uncertain times.    

    A little about me, I've been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years. Our family includes two adult sons and a maltese named Andy.  I earned a Bachelor of Psychology, a Master of Curriculum & Instruction, and a Master of Educational Leadership & Administration. I’m a member of the International Society of Technology in Education as well as the Association of California School Administrators. I’m also a proud USC Trojan and NFL alumni.  However, I think the most important thing to know about me, professionally, is that I love the work that I do!  I get immense pleasure from supporting the success of others, especially when it comes to student academic achievement and social-emotional growth.  As your principal, you can count on me to be communicative, approachable, supportive, student-centered, and committed to excellence.  

    I'm excited to learn about your student(s) as we work together to ensure that all student(s) receive the highest quality education, in the most supportive environment possible. Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email me at teresa.richmond@oside.us. We are better together and together we will make this a fabulous year!

    Most sincerely,

    Mrs. Richmond
