Big Hello and Virtual Hug to the Breeze Hill Community!

It is with great pleasure that I join the Breeze Hill family.  I am humbled to have been chosen to embark on this journey with you as we collectively learn how to support one another through a very different start of the 2020-21 school year.  Nonetheless, rest assured that your child’s academic and social-emotional well-being as well as their safety and health is my top priority. 

My personal experience as a student inspired me to pursue a career in education.  After graduating high school, I attended UC Berkeley, San Diego State and National University. I bring with me over 20 years of teaching and administrative experience in K-12. My expertise ranges from teaching math, science, AVID and Spanish to leading in both K-8 and 9-12 school environments. I also have extensive expertise in the areas of English Learners, Dual Language and World Languages.

I am the proud mother of two beautiful girls who will be entering 5th and 7th grade this fall.  My best friend and husband is a police officer for the City of San Diego and veteran of the United States Armed Forces. I have lived in San Diego the majority of my life, my parents bought a home in Southeast San Diego over 40 years ago and they still live there to this day! My family and I love and enjoy being San Diegans, we love visiting our beaches, parks and historical landmarks like Old Town and Balboa Park. 

I hope to meet all of you in person soon. But until then, there will be opportunities for us to meet via a virtual platform. You will be getting more information from me via School Messenger in the coming weeks.  I ask for your patience, support, and kindness as we continue to make history during these unprecedented times. 

With warm regards, 

Sandra Cephas, M.S.Ed.

Hello Breeze Hill Coyote Families!   

I am thrilled to have been asked to come back to Breeze Hill as the Assistant Principal again!  I have been busy working on some projects at the district and other schools this year, 
but always with the notion that should Breeze Hill need an AP again, I would love to be considered. Last week, the district needed someone to come in 3/4 of the year with Ms. Brown being asked to go to Madison Middle School and I am ecstatic that they thought of me. I never realized how much I would miss the students!  I am thrilled to return "home" and be part of the Coyote pack once again!  

Thank you for the warm welcome,
Letty Cimino
