Greetings Mountain Lions!  I am enthusiastic to begin the school year and to meet the students, staff, parents and community who make up Mountain View.

John Wooden, one of my favorite coaches, speaks of enthusiasm as one of the emotions that has affected his life the most.  He describes enthusiasm as truly enjoying what you are doing - something that brushes off on those you come in contact with.  I hope that you bring your enthusiasm for being a Mountain Lion and learning this year!
