Good morning everyone, my name is Rosa A. Romero.  I am so proud and honored to be the Richland Junior High Principal.  Rest assure parents, community, students and staff that I am committed to working and making positive change.  I have 30+ years of experience.  25 years have been spent in Administration.  Some of my experiences include being a bilingual teacher, Summer School Coordinator, Migrant Resource Teacher, Title VII Coordinator, Assistant Principal, Director of Categorical Programs, Principal, Director of Curriculum of Instruction and Director of Family and Student Support Services.  All these wonderful experiences give me the leadership skills to serve as the Principal at Richland Junior High.  I look forward to meeting everyone and being a part of a great team.  See you soon!

I have 10+ years of teaching and administrative experience in Kindergarten through 12th grade including Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, Speech and Debate, Curriculum development, and Literacy Improvement.

“We live in an age of legends!”
