Please Welcome Principal Clarissa McNally
Posted on 08/01/2019
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Clarissa McNally as our new principal! Here is her message to our CIMS families:

It will be my privilege to serve you as the new Principal of Cobalt Institute of Math and Science (CIMS). I come to you from El Roble Intermediate school, located in Claremont, California.

It will be an exciting year of building relationships, making connections and increasing student achievement. It is my belief that all students can learn and deserve a quality education. It is our responsibility, as educators, to ensure that students are equipped with the knowledge needed to become productive citizens in the 21st Century.

As I enter my 24th year in education, I bring a variety of experiences, knowledge, and passion to the position. My goals for the 2019-2020 school year are to build relationships, learn the CIMS culture and support all staff in attaining their goals. Parents play an intricate role in the educational process of their child and parental input is a key. Creating strong home-school connections is vital to the success of the organization and raising student achievement.

I began my career in VVUHSD at Goodwill in 1996 and taught social science and health classes. In addition, I was also the Varsity Volleyball coach at Silverado High School. I then transferred to Silverado my second year within the VVUHSD and taught World History and continued to coach. Returning to the High Desert has rejuvenated my passion for education and it is my pleasure to give back to the Victorville community that sparked my love for teaching.

I am eager to meet students, parents and staff in the coming weeks. I look forward to an awesome 2019/2020 school year! Go Cougars!
