Dr. Michele Einspar

Assistant Principal

Dr. Einspar lived in Illinois until she was 10 years old. She attended a couple different elementary schools including Stone School, Collins School and Sunset Hills. The move to San Diego found her attending middle school at Black Mountain and Mt. Carmel for high school. After getting her high school diploma, she went to UCSD, Thurgood Marshall College for her bachelor's and continued to pursue higher education, earning her credential at USD. After being a classroom teacher for a few years, she decided to get her Doctorate in Education at UCSD. Some of her work from her doctorate included publishing research on facilitation resilience for students facing poverty. She began the McKinney Vento Project SUCCESS program for our school district and was awarded a Golden Bell for the project. She recently wrote a grant to begin a theater program here at Mission.

In her personal life, she has also coached competitive soccer- taking teams to semi-finals, finals, and even a state cup win with one of her girl's teams. She has three kids, ages 8, 12, and 15 who are very smart and sweet, play sports like basketball and soccer, as well as participate in the performing arts.

Many years ago, Dr. E. taught at Mission. Coming back to Mission this year as an administrator has been a wonderful experience, and she feels that Mission is like home as it has one of the best school climates in Escondido.

"It's an honor to work with everyone here and serve Mission Students and Families."- Dr. E.
