Govalle Elementary School


Principal -Yesenia Martinez

Hello all! This is my 19th year in education. On my spare time, I love to cook, travel and just hangout with my kids hiking, dining, and watching movie marathons....Currently: Harry Potter's 20th year anniversary on HBO Max. My hopes and dreams for our Govalle students is that they love to learn, feel safe and can think/ask questions and advocate for themselves in life. So happy to be part of this amazing school and community! 

Assistant Principal - Candace Fox

Beep Beep!
I’m your new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Fox! This is my 18th year with the school district and my 13th at Govalle! I have taught 5th grade, kindergarten, and with the Special Education department here. Outside of school, I love to hang out with my husband, 4 cats, and 2 dogs, garden, sew, weave, play music, and volunteer in our community. My hopes for this year are that our Roadrunners can feel safe and get back to hands on, real life learning! I dream of everyone of our scholars exploring their interests and forming new friendships. Let’s have a wonder filled school year!!!
