Ms. Ann Mitchell, Principal

Welcome to Meyerholz! I have been part of the Meyerholz Family since the Fall of 2016! Each day I am impressed with the quality and expertise of the teachers here at Meyerholz, their commitment to instructional best practices, innovative teaching strategies and their passion for elementary education. My favorite part about Meyerholz is its strong foundation of creating a collaborative community among teachers, students, parents, school support staff and leaders at the District level. You + Me = Community! The most important part of my job is ensuring that all Meyerholz students are learning and receiving a challenging, engaging and responsive education in a safe, inclusive school environment. Our learner-focused classrooms at Meyerholz provide opportunities for student innovation, voice, choice, self-assessment, problem-solving and critical thinking. I'm always available to talk more with students and families about questions regarding student life here at Meyerholz.

Before becoming an Administrator at Meyerholz, I spent over a decade in the classroom teaching students in the primary grades at a school on the Peninsula with a Neighborhood program and a Dual-Language Immersion program! I bring with me experience in bi-literacy education, language learning, meeting the needs of both growing-learners and high-achieving students, as well as students with learning differences. I value providing students with ongoing social-emotional education, have a passion for strong school leadership and push my staff to adopt the very best practices in current curriculum and instruction. I also have a special place in my heart for quality Arts and Music education in schools, as I studied Art History and Art Studio before pursuing my Teaching Credential and Administrative Masters Degree. 

Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, 4-year-old daughter and friends! As a family, we enjoy being outdoors, visiting parks, spending the day at the beach and enjoying a delicious bite to eat together. On campus, you can find me out on the playground, or in the Front Office, but most enjoyably spending time learning with students and teachers in our Meyerholz classrooms!

Go Bulldogs!
