Hello, my name is Andrew Ramirez and I am the Principal of St George School. I am excited to be working with the Team Leaders to best meet the needs of your children. I believe that our school is a ministry of our church and a big part of our parish community. I believe, wholeheartedly, that our children are Catholic Students today and will become the Catholic Leaders of tomorrow, as that school motto best describes my own journey.
I am a first generation Mexican-American raised by my mother and grandmother. I am a product of Catholic Education, graduating from Don Bosco Tech in San Gabriel, received my B. A. Degree from Cal Poly Pomona, followed by an M.A. Degree in Education along with a California Credential from the University of La Verne. My calling to educate began 12 years ago here at St. George as a teacher's aide and has evolved into my position of Principal. I am eager to continue the rich Catholic school traditions that are established at our wonderful school. I plan to continue our school’s current programs while developing new opportunities for success. Student success will always be my focus, providing opportunities for growth to both teachers and students.
I invite your support for me and our school. I continue to serve as a teacher, and my classes are full of energy, technology, and new activities. I promote the ideas of project-based & collaborative learning, co-curricular lessons and STEAM education. I am focused on meeting the needs of our very diverse student population. I promise that with the support of this community, I will work hard every day and allow my actions to tell the story of who I am and of my commitment to this parish and school. I don’t have 23 years of experience yet, but I will work hard to do the very best job possible.
Thank you for your support. I look forward to serving our students, you the parents, and our church community.
