Meet the Associate Principal - Olivia Noriega

  • Olivia Noriega Welcome to Gladden Farms Elementary! I am so excited and truly honored to be the Associate Principal at Gladden Farms Elementary School. I am committed to working in collaboration with staff, parents, and the community to provide the best possible educational experience for every child. Together, we will ensure every student learns at their highest level.

    Our staff is excited to partner with you to ensure students are challenged, supported, and connected in their learning experience at Gladden Farms. We all have the responsibility to empower children to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally responsible and successful. With that in mind, we invite you to be an active member at Gladden Farms. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, or one of our Watch DOGS; we encourage you to become involved in your child’s education.

    Serving as a professional educator for the past sixteen years, I have worked six years as an elementary classroom teacher and six years as a school guidance counselor in elementary and secondary settings. Over the past four years, I have served as an associate principal at Twin Peaks and Gladden Farms Elementary Schools. I enjoy building relationships with families and communities. I have developed and enhanced parent and family engagement by successfully organizing Watch DOGS and other school-wide celebrations.  Coordinating these events and programs involved making connections with numerous community partners, parents, and local businesses.

    Personally, I have two children, who both attend Marana schools. In my free time, I enjoy camping, shopping, attending my children’s baseball/softball games, watching movies, and spending quality time with family and friends.

    Our staff at Gladden Farms is committed to making your elementary experience a safe, positive and productive one for your child. We will keep you informed of all that’s taking place at school through our Monday Message, Facebook, and school website. As associate principal, I have an open door policy and welcome your questions or concerns at any time.  Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, or give me a call. We are here to serve you.  I look forward to making a lasting relationship with you and your family.
