Mrs. Andrea Flores

Principal (DECS)

I am humbled and enthusiastic to serve as the principal of DECS. I am excited to continue to work collaboratively with our dedicated teachers and staff on a daily basis, while also having more opportunities to connect with our brilliant scholars as they learn and grow in and out of the classroom.  
I have taught grades K through 6, as well as, Reading Intervention and as an Adjunct Instructor to Pre-teacher candidates.  I began my journey as an educator 15 years ago while working for the Lodi Unified School District.  I joined the DECS community in 2015 and have taught sixth grade and fourth grade, and the instructional coach.  
Although I did not grow up in California, I have lived here for the last 20 years. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at UC San Diego, a Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential at Sacramento State, and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in Elementary Reading, from Grand Canyon University. This past November, I earned an Administrative Credential.  
As a fellow parent of a DECS alum and current 3rd grader, I am passionate about the success of our scholars and igniting a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.  My educational philosophy and belief in students are simple and rooted in my belief that all students deserve high-quality educational experiences while taking the whole-child approach to learning.
