Meet Your Principals


Interim Principal Sara Diaz

Hello Anderson Families!

My name is Sara Diaz and I am honored to be the Interim Principal at William Anderson Elementary School. I have been a part of the LESD family for 12 years.

I grew up in the South Bay. I am a proud graduate of Loyola Marymount University (LMU) where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (Elementary Education) with a Multiple Subjects and Bilingual Teaching Credentials. I also attended LMU to obtain a Master of Arts in Child and Adolescent Literacy with a CA Reading Specialist Credential.

I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade as an elementary school teacher. In addition, I have served as the English Instructional Resource Teacher (ELIRT) since 2014 in LESD and at Anderson Elementary School. I have been in education for 17 years.

I am a lifelong learner and my hope is that I will inspire all students at Anderson Elementary to have a love for learning and school. Here at Anderson Elementary all our students follow the Dolphin Way of being safe, respectful, and responsible. These are expectations that we hope students follow at school, at home, and in their communities. I am committed to supporting the academic, social, and emotional environment of all our students.

We thank you for entrusting your child at our school. If you have any questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to work with you and help all of our students.

Let’s have a great school year!
