Our Principal

Hi, my name is Carmi Strom. I am the proud principal of Webster Academy of Science and Research Elementary School. This is my eighth year as the principal of Webster.

For those of you who have never met me, I would like to share a little bit about myself. I was born in the city of Detroit, Michigan. My family moved to San Diego when I was three years old. I grew up near San Diego State University. I attended SDSU and earned a degree in Outdoor Recreation. I then went to work for the National Park Service. For many years, I had the wonderful opportunity to work in many different national parks around the west including Cabrillo National Monument right here in San Diego. While I was park ranger, I went back to school at SDSU and earned my teaching credential and a Master's degree in education. I taught at Central and Oak Park Elementary schools as a classroom teacher. I was also the Magnet Resource Teacher at Oak Park for six years, and I was vice principal of Wangenheim Middle School in Mira Mesa. I also live right here in the neighborhood. Say hi if you see me at Big Lots or Rite Aid.

This year we will be offering parent classes for parents with 0 - 5 year olds as well as parent classes for all parents every Wednesday in room 9. Please keep an eye out for them. I will also continue to host our monthly Principal Coffees/Family Fridays. This is a great way to learn what is happening at Webster and work with your child in the classroom. We are also planning a few evening events: Science night, Math Night, and literacy night, just to name a few.

I am very proud to continue as principal of Webster Academy of Science and Research Elementary School. I am looking forward to continue to build lasting relationships and helping to create a wonderful learning environment for our students, families, community, and staff. Please stop by and say hi, my door is always open.

Carmi Strom, Principal
