Meet Mrs. Perry

My name is Lyssa Perry, and I am excited to be the new Principal of Tafoya Elementary School!  I am a mom of two amazing twin boys, and we have recently uprooted our family and move to Woodland to be closer to family.   I have spent the last 12 years of my career in the Alum Rock School District, in East Side San Jose, CA, as an elementary teacher, Vice Principal of a middle school, and Principal of an elementary school.  My passion is education, working with students, and helping all of my students become great human beings whom  are proud of themselves.  
I am continuously inspired by our students and am proud to serve our vibrant community. Since we opened our doors, Tafoya Elementary has successfully built a community that is rooted in the dedication and positive working relationships among students, parents, and school staff.  I am excited to be a member of this community and continue to watch our community flourish!
On behalf of the entire Tafoya staff, I would like to express our commitment to providing a quality educational program with a safe, caring, and educationally challenging environment. We are confident that by working together, our students' educational journey will be exciting, meaningful, demanding and productive.
If at any point you feel we are not meeting the needs of your students, have concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to email me!  If you would like to set up a meeting, please contact the front office, and I would love to meet with you!
