Our Principal

August 16, 2021

Dear John Reed Families,

I am so excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year! My name is AnnaMaria Young, and I am honored to be your new principal at John Reed Elementary School. I am eager to get to know the amazing students at John Reed, and welcome them back after a time like no other. I am coming to you from Petaluma - where I taught for several years at Miwok Valley Language Academy as a Special Education teacher. I am passionate about education, social justice, and greatly enjoy reading, and traveling. In my spare time I am often cheering on my kids at their various sporting events, or cheering on Liverpool FC, the Giants or Warriors! I am a product of Cotati - Rohnert Park schools, and it feels great to be “coming home”. My education background is in Cultural Studies, Specialized Instruction, and Education Leadership.  

As we return to full instructional days on campus, I assure you that John Reed staff will be using all updated protocols as directed by the Health Department and the District to prioritize the safety of staff and students.

Our families and community need communication quickly, and I will work to ensure that families are able to access updates on school procedures and changes with ease. I welcome regular communication and feedback, so please stop by anytime - my door will always be open.
