Ms. Debbi Puente
My name is Debbi Puente, and it is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed Assistant Principal at Carmel High School. I am truly honored to accept this new role and look forward to working with Principal Lyons, Assistant Principal Tuana, as well as the rest of our staff in our efforts to ensure all students are prepared to excel in higher education, the workplace, and their role as citizens of an ever-changing global community.
I am entering my 28th year in education. I spent 12 years as a classroom teacher which morphed into an instructional coach position for several school sites. The previous 15 years I’ve worked as an Administrator of Curriculum and Instruction at the district office in Pajaro Valley Unified, Monterey COE and Santa Cruz COE. Most recently, I served as the Director of Teacher and Administrator Support for a start-up educational consulting company. In this position, I worked with multiple schools/districts across 10 states in the work of improving classroom instruction.
The high school years are critical times for students. Choices made during this period will greatly determine their future. My goal as Assistant Principal is to work alongside our administrative team to provide leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is both safe and respectable. To this end, I will strive to promote the optimal learning environment for your child to receive the best possible instruction. I am confident that Carmel High will continue to be a place where our students will thrive academically and socially.
Feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
