Dear Families and Community Members,
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I introduce myself. My name is Serina West, assistant principal for Del Rio. I have been a teacher for the Oceanside Unified School District for over 22 years and served as Interim principal at Garrison Elementary School and assistant principal at both Santa Margarita (K-8) school and Stuart Mesa (K-8) school.
My love for working with students and my strong support for public education has inspired me to serve in a variety of leadership roles at the local, state, and national level. I hold a National Board Certification in Teaching, and two Master Degrees (Master of Arts in Teaching and Masters of Arts in Education Administration).
Although I am humbly proud of my accomplishments, I saved the best for last! I was born and raised in Knoxville Tennessee. I am a grandmother of 4 grandsons, and a mother of two beautiful daughters. Both my daughters attended schools in the Oceanside Unified School District.
I am honored to be supporting staff, students, parents, and community members of the Oceanside Unified School District. I am committed to students' educational growth as well as their social and emotional well-being. I look forward to an exciting year supporting you as assistant principal of Del Rio Elementary!
