Principal's Message

  • Daniel Bagby Hello and Welcome to Field Elementary School!

    I'm Daniel Bagby, the principal of Field Elementary School.

    I am thrilled and humbled to be selected as the new principal of Field Elementary School and will bring my passion for student achievement to this new position with the Pasadena Unified School District. The school, with its Mandarin dual language immersion program, has an established reputation of translating its beliefs about children and their capabilities into action with spectacular results. My desire is to harness this vision and partner with school stakeholders to further the school’s culture of success to meet the needs of all students.

    I have more than 25 years of experience as an educator.  Prior to coming to Field Elementary, I was with the Los Angeles Unified School District, where I was principal of the Ambassador School of Global Education since 2014. The elementary school, one of six autonomous small schools of the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools, is part of both national and international networks that create opportunities for teachers to collaborate nationally and internationally on student projects. The school offers foreign language instruction in Korean, Spanish, and Mandarin, and has established partnerships to promote understanding among the people, leaders and institutions of the U.S. and Asia. My experience includes working as a program coordinator, curriculum specialist, instructional coach, and bilingual teacher. 

    I look forward to an exciting new year at Field.
