Hello, King Lions,
I am in my first year at your school as assistant principal. In Los Angeles, I have worked at Bancroft and Madison Middle Schools, Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, Panorama High, Fairfax High, Venice High, Early College Academy, Nava College Prep Academy, and Jefferson High. I am glad to be part of the Thomas Starr King Middle School tradition. I have heard much about the history of the school, so I look forward to helping our students make their own history here.
I invite everyone to take the initiative to come up to me and get to know me. Although I may frequently look very serious, I'm always open to a friendly conversation. Don't be afraid to approach me. Here are some conversation starters for you:
The UCLA Bruins
The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Ramones
I strongly promote Michael Josephson's 6 Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Citizenship, and Caring.
Among my duties, I oversee the Social Studies and Elective Departments, the Film and Media Magnet’s “Film Crew,” the Cafeteria, the LACER after school program, the School Nurse, Civic Center Permits, and School Uniforms. I can lend a hand in all facets of the school, so feel free to ask me for help about anything. If I can't help you, I will find out who can.
Hope to meet you soon.
Mr. Sayne Maza
