Principal Michael Ecker
I began my career in education teaching English with the San Dieguito Union High School district. For eight years, I served the district as an English teacher, but also wore the hats of ASB director, Yearbook teacher, and reading intervention teacher. In the district, I also served as the school site English department leader and eventually the District English Department Chair. As a teacher, I went to school in the evenings to complete my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, my Masters in Administration and completed my Administrative Services Credential.
Moving over to the Carlsbad Unified school district, I took the role of Assistant Principal at Aviara Oaks Middle School. At Aviara Oaks, our team focused on increasing engagement and increased writing through the use of technology. As the result of our work, we saw a thirty point rise in our API.
I am so happy to call Calavera Hills my home. I will work to foster collaboration within our school to create a positive, rigorous, and supportive place for students. I am looking forward to building productive and positive partnerships with the Calavera PTA, community members, and staff to help create an environment on campus that supports our kids in the pursuit of their dreams. It is certainly going to be a great year.
