Greetings Sylvandale Middle School Parents and Community,
It is my pleasure to serve you as Assistant Principal this year! I look forward to building positive relationships with all key stakeholders and supporting all of you with your needs. This year I strive to be immersed in the community and to learn about San Jose, specifically the people, and community surrounding Sylvandale. I enjoy working in diverse environments, where love, empathy and collaboration is the core elements of support.
This will be my 8th year in educational leadership, 6 of those years were here in the Bay Area, specifically Marin City and Hayward. However, what prepared me the most to thrive in this position is my life experiences. My life experiences quickly showed me the power of education, and positive role modeling. I hope that I can be the positive influence my teachers, and coaches were for me, to your children.
Please support me in my desire to build relationships with all parents, by visiting me at our school, setting up virtual meetings, emailing, calling, parent groups, joining school committees, or any other form of communication. I will give everything I can to the Sylvandale community, and look forward to our partnership.
Mr. Andrew Anstead
