Principal's Message


Hello Washington Community,


Welcome to Washington's Website! Washington Elementary is Redondo Beach Unified School District's largest elementary school and houses the district's Dual Immersion Program. I am incredibly honored to be a part of a community that has a history of supporting students academically, culturally, and socially through rigorous instruction, relationship building, and enrichment programs.


I would like to share a little about my background. I am native to the central San Joaquin Valley, but my family moved to San Luis Obispo when I was 17. I call “SLO” home. I am also a Cal Poly graduate and still spend a lot of time on the Central Coast. I have worked in education for over ten years, but I have spent the past four years working in the Tustin Unified School District as a Special Education Coordinator developing and implementing the District’s inclusive schooling program across 18 elementary schools. I believe in encouraging an inclusive environment where students explore outside of their comfort zones and take risks in their learning.


Washington is a diverse school where students are encouraged to be creative, contemplative, and compassionate. Washington Elementary is comprised of a very dedicated and passionate staff and parent community. I value the hard work that the staff and parents have already done and continue to do to support all the students at Washington.


I want you to know that you may contact me should you have any questions, concerns, or simply want to reach out with something to share.



With Gratitude,


Andrea Bittick
