On behalf of Laguna Beach Unified School District, welcome to El Morro Elementary School, home of the Sea Lions. My name is Chris Duddy, and I joined the El Morro community in 2004. My previous roles have included serving as Thurston Middle School Principal, Assistant Principal at Thurston Middle School, Guidance Specialist at Brea Jr. High School, and as a high school English Teacher and basketball coach at Brea Olinda High School. I received a Master of Arts in Educational Administration from Azusa Pacific University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from California State University, Fullerton. Additionally, I hold a California Preliminary Administrative Services Credential and a Professional Clear Subject Credential in English.

I trust that this website will provide you the information you need to become familiar with some of the programs and opportunities available for all our El Morro students. Please contact me or any of our support team if you need more information at 949-497-7780.

I believe all children can learn. And I look forward to working together with students, staff, and parents to inspire a love of learning in all children!
