Assistant Principal

Welcome to Mt. Vista K-8 School!  My name is Ms. Gallegos and it is my privilege to serve the students, staff, families, and community as assistant principal of our school.  I’m an Arizona native, proud dog-mom to a Lab Mix named Elliott, and new member of the Oracle School District family.    


Since transitioning from the classroom to school leadership several years ago, people often people ask if I miss teaching.  My response is, “I teach every day!”  Each time a student is sent to my office for a variety of reasons, I view our conversation as a learning opportunity for the student.  When I work with teachers to challenge students and plan meaningful instruction, I influence student achievement.  When I speak with parents and advocate for our school in the community, I help connect adults with the magic that takes place in our classrooms each day. 


I recently heard the following quote from motivational speaker Josh Shipp and it has shaped my vision for the 2017-2018 school year, “Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.”  With great enthusiasm, I thank you for choosing Mt. Vista K-8 School.  Together, I look forward to focusing on each individual student and supporting them as they write their success story.
