Our Staff

 Mrs. Amanda Zimmerman
Principal (DECS)

Mrs. Zimmerman is the Principal of Delta Elementary Charter School and leads this exceptional educational team and school community.  She is so excited to continue the wonderful work you do as a school community to educate our students. 

I arrive at DECS as both a seasoned teacher and principal with 13 years of experience. I received my Bachelors in Childhood Development with a concentration in cognitive development from Sacramento State and a Masters in Education from UC Davis. I am a lifelong Sacramenten and live in the Oak Park area with my family. When I am not working, you can find me singing and dancing around my house, crafting, or relaxing with my family and friends by the pool. 


I believe education is a life-long process and I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness and traditions of DECS this year and in years to come. Most importantly, I bring the understanding that ALL students have the right to high quality education that students are at the center of all school related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students.

She has spent the last two years at our sister school, Lighthouse Charter, as a site Administrator. She is well-versed in our charter mission and philosophy of building leaders and scholars. Mrs. Andrews received her Bachelor’s of Arts degree from CSU, Sacramento in Liberal Studies (Elementary Education) with an emphasis in Human Development.

When she’s not on campus, Mrs. Andrews is spending time with her husband and son (with baby boy number two on the way this fall).
