Our Principal

Dear Alcott Elementary School Community,
Principal LewisIt is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Alcott Elementary School and to join this extraordinary school community. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them a world-class learning environment where school culture and relationships matter!
I arrive to Alcott as an experienced administrator, but in addition to my role as an educator, I am first and foremost a father and husband. After graduating from SDSU, I journeyed to Germany, Mexico and Guatemala.  It was in Guatemala where I met my wife and was able to lead a bilingual school as the Executive Director/Principal.  We were married in Ciudad Vieja, Guatemala and moved to Sacramento, CA in 1996 to further my work as an educator, administrator and to raise our children. 

Today our two boys are in college and my wife and I are excited to be back in San Diego. Education is the single greatest factor in ensuring a stronger tomorrow and although I have always felt at home in the classroom, it is my position as an elementary school principal where I have felt most fulfilled.  It is in this role that I can work collaboratively with staff and families to ensure the conditions for learning that truly impact our students.  


You will see me in classrooms, on the yard, at school events and at the crosswalk.  Our school community means everything to me, and I promise to be a principal who will listen and understand the needs of our staff, students and families.  


I firmly believe that every child can excel and that the partnership between home and school builds confidence in students to use their powers to shape their future and the future of our community.  Our Alcott Owls will be the future leaders and scholars who will make a positive and powerful impact tomorrow.

I will be meeting with parents, students, and staff throughout the year to identify goals in the areas of student achievement, school climate, and parent communication. Your voice as stakeholders is critical as we strive to be the best school possible in San Diego.

My door is always open to you. I welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus for our work at Alcott. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes here at Alcott Elementary School.
