New Ethan Allen Principal’s Message

Hello Allen Families!  

I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Jamie Wells, and I am writing to express my excitement for joining Ethan Allen Elementary, as the new principal. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself before the students go to winter break. I have worked in the Garden Grove Unified School District for 20 years and actually started my teaching career as a GATE teacher at Ethan Allen. I spent 12 years at Allen before transitioning to the positions of Teacher on Special Assignment, Coach for new teachers, and then the GATE supervisor for the district. Most recently, I have been the principal at Stanford Elementary.  It is with enthusiasm that I bring my professional experience, passion for students and teaching to Ethan Allen Elementary School.
