Chelsea Heights Elementary School Announces New Principal

Dear Chelsea Heights Community, 


I am pleased to share with you that I have selected a new leader for Chelsea Heights Elementary School. Please join me in welcoming Guillermo Maldonado Pérez as your school’s new principal beginning in the 2022-23 school year.


Principal Maldonado Pérez brings a wealth of experience in helping all students feel represented and accepted for who they are. He has 15 years of experience as a classroom teacher and administrator. Most recently, he served as assistant principal at Creative Arts Secondary in Saint Paul Public Schools. 

Principal Maldonado Pérez also worked as an immersion teacher in SPPS from 2008-11 and 2014-18. 


Please take a moment to complete a short survey. This survey is an opportunity to help your new principal understand the values and priorities of your school community.


We will work together to determine different opportunities to meet and engage with Principal Maldonado Pérez. You can expect to hear from him directly very soon. 


Thank you for supporting your child and Chelsea Heights Elementary School



Joe Gothard
