New Adams Principal Takes the Reins

Adams Elementary School’s new principal, Kelly Fresch, started on 7/1. With 22 years of educational and administrative background, Fresch arrives from Guin Foss Elementary, in Tustin, where she served as principal. Fresch holds an advanced degree in educational leadership from Azusa Pacific University and received a multiple subject teaching credential from California State University of Fullerton and a communications degree from San Diego State. She also completed a Spanish immersion program in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Former Adams principal Amy Alzina recently accepted the superintendent/principal position at Cold Spring Elementary.
