Meet the Principal:

Hello, and welcome to UISA! My name is Eric Crawford, and I will be the new Principal of UISA while Mrs. Pedroncelli is gone this year.

By way of introduction, I would like to tell you a little about myself. I began my teaching career while volunteering for the US Peace Corps in Botswana, South Africa. I have also taught agriculture for 21 years (19 years for MCOE, and 2 years for Santa Cruz County Office of Education). For the past two years, I have served Ukiah Unified School District as the Career Technical Education Coordinator. I have 2 children who have gone through Ukiah’s schools, and am excited about this upcoming year!


If you have any questions which you would like to ask me, I may be reached at, or by calling my office phone number 472-5905.


I look forward to meeting and speaking with you!
