About me

I am so excited to be taking on my new administrative role at St. Francis!  I look forward to working, in partnership, with you and your child this school year. As you know there will be joyful times and challenging times in our lives this year, but I know with God as the focus of our school, we can help each other through anything. It is a blessing to be in your lives and the lives of your wonderful children. God has placed us here together, and I pray that you remember (even on my best days) I am only human and may occasionally make mistakes. I pray we are loving and respectful in all of our exchanges and remain in constant prayer this year.

A bit about myself, I taught for 16 years before embarking on my new position as Assistant Principal. I have a wonderful husband and three amazing kids! I am the youngest of seven children. I have loving parents and siblings! We are all products of Catholic schools. We attended St. Justin Martyr, Cornelia Connelly, and Servite. I attended the University of San Diego which is also Catholic. I also received my Master’s Degree from California State University, Fullerton and an Administrative Certificate from United States International University. Needless to say, I enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching. Presently, I enjoy time with my family and exercise, especially running.
 I truly believe communication between home and school is essential. If you need to reach me, call the school office and leave me a message at (714)695-3700 or you may email me at fmontelli@sfayl.org. I will make every effort to get back to you within 24 hours or less.
