Dear Dolphins,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you back to Dewey Avenue School for the 2015-2016 school year. My name is Eva Matthews and I am very honored and excited to be Dewey’s new Principal. Although, I am new to Dewey; I have been part of the Garvey family for two years as an Academic Coach for Willard and Monterey Vista. I have been in education for over 15 years and have been privileged to work with children from the ages of, TK through 8th grade. 

Over the summer Dr. Molina-Solis shared fondly with me that Dewey enjoys a rich history of academic and cultural excellence that is the result of a mutual partnership between the school staff and parents, who provide a diversity of experiences for the students. I am truly appreciative to be appointed to this position and am looking forward to working with our dedicated community to provide the best possible educational program for our children.


Eva Matthews, Principal
