I had the pleasure of knowing all three of these gentlemen before I retired from teaching in Pleasanton. They are quality individuals and Pleasanton was fortunate to have them.
Wishing you all the best as you move ahead, John, John and Jim!

I have one kid in each of the high schools that both came through PMS.
Love these three men - They each possess a passion for education and our children's welfare that is evident.

The tireless hours they spend on campus at events, chit-chatting, until late in the evening is just mind blowing. At the high schools Mr Hansen and Mr Dwyer attend and support so many of the students sport & academic competitions and extracurriculars pursuits. During their days the principals deal with a mountain of district and state bureaucracy, yet keep a positive "can do" attitude.

The often don't get the community support they deserve, rather deal with irate parents or disciplinary issues.

Pleasanton has been extremely blessed to have these great men at the helms of our schools. I for one am so appreciative. Each has made an impact on my children's lives!

Wishing you each nothing but the best!
