Principal Jo Gonsalves, Ed.D. » Principal


"Dr. Jo" became our school's instructional leader in 2007. Prior to joining the Brookfield Faculty, she taught middle school and high school English and Science in Sacramento area private and parochial schools for 11 years. She also served as Assistant Principal of Academics at St. Francis High School in Sacramento for 4 years before accepting her current position to lead Brookfield School. Dr. Jo was drawn to Brookfield School because of its reputation for excellence and its commitment to serving the area's brightest and most motivated students, a population that is grossly under-served in most schools today, but is so important to the betterment of our society's future. If you ask Dr. Jo what she sees as her personal mission as Brookfield's principal, she would tell you, "My purpose is to provide a safe and happy environment, combined with a rigorous and creative academic program, and emotional and social support so my bright students have the best opportunity to reach their potential. I see each of my students as a future leader."

Dr. Jo's Professional Credentials include:
BA in English from UC Davis
Departmental Citation for Excellence, UC Davis
CA Clear Single Subject Credential: English, General Science
