screen-shot-2015-06-22-at_225My name is Rebeca Venegas and I am the Principal at Calibre Academy Surprise.  I have been working for Learning Matters for 18 years.  This is my 9th year as a principal, six of which I was Principal of Calibre Glendale.

I was born and raised in Mexico City and moved to Arizona more than twenty years ago. In Mexico, I taught English as a Second Language for many years to students from first grade all the way to University level. When I moved to Phoenix, I worked as a math and Spanish teacher before becoming principal.

My goal as Calibre’s Principal is to cultivate a learning community where all students will grow in knowledge, teachers will actively engage students in learning, and parents are seen as valued partners in their child’s education.

Your connection to our school is imperative for our success. Should you have any comments, questions or concerns, please know I am here.  I’m privileged and honored to be Calibre’s Principal.

I look forward to working with our families and staff for many more years.
