Capuchino High School Assistant Principal

  • Hello Mustang Community!

    My name is Monique de Brito Guedes and I am your new assistant principal. Prior to coming to Capuchino, I was a science teacher and educational leader at Berkeley High School, working there for nearly a decade.  As an equity minded educational leader, I led culturally responsive organizational professional development and was a co-facilitator for the Teacher of Color network.  To help make my educational aspirations come to life for my students, I was involved in many grant writing pursuits and created a field study program which enabled my students to experience field research opportunities and nature related field trips to help foster stewardship values for our next generation.  I adhere to the ethos of, "it takes a village to raise a child," and with that, appreciate and value all staff members' roles in how they help to shape the educational experiences of our students.  I deeply value celebrating the whole child and believe in importance of student voice in informal and formal educational venues, and hope to help build upon and strengthen these opportunities for our young scholars.  I look forward to building relationships with the students, staff, and families with the goal of educational excellence at Capuchino High School, an IB World School.  Thank you for the opportunity. 

    Best, 

    Monique de Brito Guedes
