Principal Message

My name is Pamela Busch and I am honored to be the Principal of Riley, Marcy and New Dawn Schools. I very much look forward to serving our students and staff throughout the year as I work to provide a happy and safe environment while ensuring our students are receiving a quality and engaging education that supports each child holistically, emotionally, and socially.
This is my seventh year as Principal of our schools. Previously, I have served the San Diego Unified School District as a Special Education Administrator. Before coming to the San Diego Unified District, I was a high school Assistant Principal for six years at Onate High School in Las Cruces, NM. My background is in Special Education as I graduated from New Mexico State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education back in 2002. I have worked very closely and collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, psychologists, and mental health providers to ensure student success and am very excited to bring my experience to our school as a dedicated and caring leader. I have years of experience in working with students with unique needs. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing students become confident in realizing their own potential and being proud of their own progress.
As a parent, you are the most important person in your child's life. You have insight and knowledge about your child that is valuable to me and our staff. If you ever have any questions, concerns, ideas, or want to fill me and my team in on information regarding your child, please do not ever hesitate to reach out to me.
Our school has a committee that makes important decisions regarding the academic goals, vision, budget, and interventions at our school. Parent input is critical in each of these as parents bring forth an important perspective about what is best for our students and school community. I hope that you will consider joining our Student Site Council (SSC). Each of these meets just a few times a year, so although the time commitment is small, the impact of your input is huge. Please let me know if you would like to be a part of our SSC or SGT team or if you would like more details regarding involvement.
My email address is [email protected] and the phone number to reach me at is (858) 302-3300.  
Most sincerely,
Pamela Busch
