Principal's Message

Greetings Delevan Drive Community,


It is with great excitement to introduce myself as your new Principal of Delevan Drive Elementary School.  I am honored to lead such an amazing school and school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school to support the students, teachers, and families.    


Over the past 21 years, I have worked as a teacher, English Language Coordinator, Categorical Program Advisor, Title III Coach and Assistant Principal, but the most important job has been that of a child advocate.  I will work with the staff to continue to provide the rigorous instruction that each teacher delivers to the children in our school community.  I will make it a point to make myself accessible to all stakeholders, including parents, faculty and staff, and students. 


Once again, I am grateful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to Delevan Drive Elementary.  I am eager to meet each, and every student and I will do my part in “challenging students to perform academically at their maximum ability and develop strong social skills that will empower them to achieve life goals” (Delevan Drive Vision). 


I look forward to getting to know the students, staff, and families that make up this wonderful school community. 



Mr. Cruzata
