Principal's Message

Dear Parent or Guardian:

My name is Dr. Alex Gonzalez, and it is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Maie Ellis Elementary.

I possess over 21 years of educational experience spanning from grades K-12 with a specific concentration in educational leadership and parent engagement. My most recent administrative experience was shaped by 2 successful years as the assistant principal of Fallbrook STEM Academy, here in our district. Prior to that assignment, I served 15 years as Coordinator of the Migrant Education Program for the San Diego County Office of Education.

I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to your child’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s academic success. Along with the staff, we will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Maie Ellis by continuing to build strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.

As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the BEST school in America!

I look forward to working with you and your child.  

Go Mustangs!


Alex Gonzalez, Ed.D.
