Ms. Christina Delval, Acting Principal

It is my pleasure to serve our community as Acting Principal at Desert Horizon Elementary School!  Prior to becoming Acting Principal, I had many leadership experiences, including Assistant Principal, Mentor Teacher, Instructional Coach, and Dean of Students in Pendergast Elementary School District. Even with these amazing experiences, I will always be a teacher at heart, having served 10 years as a classroom teacher.

My educational background includes a Master of Education in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University, in Phoenix, Arizona. Additionally, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Teaching and Learning and a concentration in Bilingual Studies from California State University Channel Islands, in Camarillo, California.

It is my privilege to lead as Acting Principal at Desert Horizon. My mission is to create an environment in which students, staff, and families feel safe, respected, welcomed, and inspired in their personal and educational goals. I am committed to working in partnership with our families to foster a solid home-to-school connection to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.
