Ms. Guevara has a Master of Arts in Education from the University of San Francisco. A product of Catholic education herself, she is an unwavering advocate for Catholic education.

"The student experience is at the heart of who we are. I will ensure our students have opportunities to thrive in their faith life, academic endeavors and interests. I look forward to engaging with our parents, alumni and community supporters. It is our charism of the Holy Family and our mission of being a faith-filled, diverse and welcoming community that led me to SJND many years ago and it is for these same reasons I am grateful each day I am able to serve all students, teachers, parents, alumni and friends of Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School." -Ms. Guevara
