Principal's Welcome

It is with pleasure that I write this letter to introduce myself to the Granada Elementary School Community. I look forward to starting the new school year as your Principal. I begin my tenure as Principal with great excitement. Granada has a well deserved reputation as a highly effective learning environment for children with a hard working, dedicated staff. I feel very lucky to be part of this special community.

I have been an educator for over thirty years as a teacher and an administrator. I have taught both regular and special education at many different levels, pre-school to adult. I am a product of the Los Angeles Unified School District as are both my children.

I believe that children can be most effective in a learning community where parents, teachers, students, classified personnel and administrators all work together. Communication and cooperation, in a team approach, is the key. We are all here for the children and that is what excites me the most.

I believe in an open door policy, and my door will always be open to parents and all members of the Granada family. Please feel to call or visit to address any concerns or just say hello.


Esta Herman
