Dear Breeze Hill Families,

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Lori Higley and I am honored to be the principal of Breeze Hill Elementary School. I have been an educator for 23 years in Vista and began my career right here at Breeze Hill as a Kindergarten teacher! Throughout my career, I have always believed that the best gift to give a child is the gift of literacy and a love for learning. It is my mission to build relationships with students and families based on trust and respect. I believe that parents are partners in the education of their children and it is this partnership that propels students to great futures.


It is my hope that you will become involved here at Breeze Hill in any way you can. We have many fantastic committees to volunteer for at Breeze Hill including PTA, ELAC committee, SSC and WatchDogs. Additionally, there will be many family activities throughout the year to attend that will be both informational and fun! Classroom volunteers are always welcome. Check with your child’s teacher about signing up or check with our front desk secretary for information.


This year at Breeze Hill we are launching our second year as a AVID Elementary School. If you are not familiar with AVID, I will have some informational meetings throughout the year. I hope you will be able to join me for Coffee with the Principal during the school year as well.


I am also thrilled to begin our journey in Personalized Learning this year. We will open a Maker Space where students will explore designing models to enhance their learning in the classroom. Students will also work to solve real world problems and begin to explore the world of college and career. Breeze Hill Elementary school is truly a great place to learn and grow!


I welcome you to the Breeze Hill family. Please feel free to stop in and say hi and let me know how I can be of service to you.


Thank you for your continued support.


Lori Higley

Dear Breeze Hill Families:


    I would also like to introduce myself to all of you.  My name is Letty Cimino and I have been a bilingual (Spanish) educator for over 25 years.  I have taught every grade from TK to middle and high school Spanish.  Most of my experience is with the elementary school, so I feel right “at home” here!!

    I have been with Vista Unified School District for over 7 years, where I have been a teacher on special assignment.  During this time, I have been training teachers throughout the district, on instructional practices, curriculum and strategies that will help all students.  

    I also feel right “at home” here because for the last 2 years, I have specifically been working with the teachers, staff, parents and students here at Breeze Hill. I look forward to continuing to do so, as I support Mrs. Higley with her vision and mission and the entire staff in making Breeze Hill the “Best School in the Universe”.
