Please welcome Assistant Principal Veronica Cueva
Posted on 08/01/2019
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Veronica Cueva, our new assistant principal here at CIMS! 

Ms. Cueva will be joining Ms. McNally at our first Coffee with the Principal on August 15. We hope you can all join us and say hello!

Here is Ms. Cueva's welcome message:

I have been an educator for 25 years. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. Bachelor's degree from Pitzer College. Master's degree from Claremont Graduate University.  I am bilingual (Spanish/English).  I am a person of service. I believe in high academic expectations where students are encouraged to takes risks and challenge themselves so that they experience the ebb and flow of learning.  I am about the cycle of continuous improvement and I promote a growth mindset.  

Referencing the work of Carol Dweck, I believe that students should guide themselves knowing that they are in charge of their mind. Any student can help their mind grow by using it in the right way.  

Essential skills for success are:

Planning - the ability to figure out how to accomplish goals

Organization - the ability to develop and maintain a system that keeps materials and plans orderly.   

Time Management - having an accurate understanding of how long tasks will take

Task Initiation - the ability to independently start tasks when needed.

Working Memory - the mental processes that allow us to hold information in our minds while working with it. 

Metacognition - being aware of what you know and using that information to help you learn. 

Self-Control - the ability to regulate yourself, including your thoughts, actions, and emotions. 

Attention - the ability to focus on a person or task for a period of time and shifting that attention when needed.

Perseverance - ability to stick with a task and not give up, even when it becomes challenging. 

Flexibility - the ability to adapt to new situations and deal with change. 

I am excited to be here at Cobalt Institute of Math and Science and look forward to becoming part of the CIMS family to promote Cougar PRIDE - Perseverance, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, and Engagement.
