Mrs. Kelly Gradstein

Hello Pioneers!

My name is Mrs. Gradstein and I am so pleased to serve as the Principal of Ysabel Barnett Elementary School. Prior to coming to Barnett, I have worked as a General Education and Special Education teacher, serving students in Temecula, Detroit, and Atlanta. Most recently, I served as the Principal of Paloma Elementary School for six years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Diversified Liberal Studies, a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration, and a Master's Degree in Special Education.

Outside of Barnett, I am a part of a big family. I live with my husband, two sons, and dog, Grizzly. My family moved to Temecula when I was in the fifth grade so I have a long history with the area. When I am not at school, I am most likely shuttling my kids around town to their various athletic events, cooking, baking, or spending time with my extended family who also live locally.

As the Principal of Ysabel Barnett, I believe that every child can learn. Education is the key to success in life. With education you can do anything you set your mind to and it is my responsibility to ensure that all students receive the best education possible. I believe in an open door policy and encourage students, families, and community members alike to come in, send me an email, or set-up an appointment. Your thoughts, questions, concerns, and ideas are important, valued, and appreciated. I tend to be very busy but am never too busy to hear from a student, a parent, or local community member. We can always find the time. We are one team in supporting the students who attend Ysabel Barnett each day.

It is going to be an incredible school year! I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and your families as the year gets under way.
