Principal's Corner

Mrs. Orr with students

Hello, my name is Cindy Orr, and I am the proud Principal of CVESD Innovation Academy. I am looking forward to building long-lasting relationships with you and your children.

Mrs. Orr and students

I am originally from Napa Valley and have been living in Chula Vista for the past twenty-two years. I have two wonderful boys that keep me very active from mountain bike riding to sailing. They also had the wonderful opportunity to go to school in CVESD. Family is extremely important to me, and I look forward to introducing my family to yours.

During my thirty years in education, I have worked with students in preschool through sixth grade in both Napa Valley and Chula Vista. I have been a teacher and a principal in CVESD since 2001. I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Mathematics, Science, and Technology. I also work with a nonprofit organization: Childhelp, a national organization that helps in the prevention and care of children of abuse.

Mrs. Orr with her dogThe connection between home and school is necessary for the success of our children. There are many ways for you to be involved in your child’s education at school, and at home. Please look for blogs from me sharing upcoming events and tips for working with your child at home.

Please know that my door is always open and that creating a safe and nurturing school climate for your child is my top priority.
