District Home


Deborah Hatchell-Carter Our Principal


My name is Michael Beraud and I am the principal at Linda Vista Elementary. I’m a native San Diegan and have worked in the San Diego Unified School District for 27 years.  I have been an elementary school teacher, a middle school teacher, a school site resource teacher and district resource teacher, a vice principal and a principal.


I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Administration, a multiple subjects teaching credential and an administrative credential.

I’m thrilled that we have become a STEAM Magnet School.  This is an exciting time for Linda Vista Elementary School and the entire Linda Vista community.  We will be working closely with Montgomery Middle School and Kearny High School so that our students will have a seamless transition from one education level to the next.
