Principal's Message



Danielle Winters

Principal, San Lorenzo Valley Elementary



Hello amazing SLVE families! I am so excited to rejoin the SLE family and to be the leader of such a wonderful school! I look forward to working together in the coming months and years to do what is best for the youngest members of our community.

In case you don’t know me, I have been in public education in Santa Cruz County since 2002 and was a teacher at SLVE for 7 years . After that,  I became the district Data and Assessment Coach, then in 2017, transitioned to be the SLV High School Assistant Principal. It truly feels like coming home as we move together into another great,  although probably very different, school year for 2020-21. 

Outside of school I love to run, hike, cycle, walk my dog, and go to the beach. I have two high school daughters and my husband is a fire captain in Santa Cruz County.

I look forward to working with all of you and to support the wonderful things that happen every day at SLVE!
