Since breaking ground in 2007, Wolf Canyon has been on the FAST track to excellence. We believe that we must educate the head and the heart to help our students become productive 21st-century citizens with a strong sense of purpose driven by a desire to make the world a better place. The Fine Arts, Science, and Technology (FAST) are the hallmarks of our educational programs. At Wolf Canyon Elementary School we truly are Responding to the Call of Excellence for ALL.

Vision and Values

Wolf Canyon Elementary School strives to create an educational experience that integrates a standards-aligned curriculum through Fine Arts, Science, and Technology. Challenging students daily to make relevant and meaningful connections academically, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically is what we value most. Wolf Canyon Elementary School - Home of the Timberwolves is dedicated to educating the whole child.

Principal's Message

Let me begin by saying that is truly an honor to serve as the principal of Wolf Canyon. My family, (wife, Nicole, son, Quinn, and daughter, Ashton) and I are San Diego natives, and have recently moved back to San Diego!  

This year marks my sixteenth year in education.  I have varied experience as a teacher and school leader.  For the first seven years of my career, I served at both the elementary and middle school levels, teaching a variety of grades and content areas.  I then served for two years as an assistant principal at two middle schools, and for the last six years as a principal, three years in Beaverton, Oregon, and three years here in San Diego.

I love serving as a principal!  My passions are developing positive relationships with everyone within the community, working with students as they grow, supporting teachers and staff so that they can reach their greatest potential, strengthening the connection between school and home, and fostering a positive school culture.  At our core, we know that the school-to-home partnership is what allows us to provide an extraordinary school experience for all students. 

The Wolf Canyon team will continue to work, as one, to support the individual needs of each child that walks into our school!  We are Wolf Pack Strong!
