Ms. Susana Yépez, Interim Assistant Principal

I’m excited to act as the Interim Assistant Principal at Dawes Elementary School. I worked as a CPS Spanish Teacher, World Language Department Chair and  Dual Language Coordinator at Roosevelt High School for 15 years. Throughout my various roles, my goal has been to develop a strong sense of connection to the process of fostering meaningful relationships with parents and teachers in order to support the overall success and well-being of students. As an educator, my goal is to create a school community that focuses on the needs of the students and values equity, diversity and the academic success of all students.
