Is this a good thing? I do not know Mrs. Villasenor as my kids moved on from Valley View before she took the reins. My comments are not directed at her, but at PUSD. The district has a habit of moving lousy administrators from the schools to the district to allow them to finish their contracts without being fired. This happened with 5 lousy Amador Principals in 4 years. The district needs to either do a better job hiring or save us all money by simply firing poor performers.
I wish Mrs. Villasenor the best in her new gig with the district.

Congratulations to Soraya on her career advancement! I do personally and professionally know Soraya and she is a dedicated administrator and has served the Valley View community professionally and has had excellent rapport with the families and students.

I worked for PUSD for eight unsettling years. During that time, superintendants and principals were hired from outside of the district when experienced, long-term staff and teachers were interview candidates.

Of the numerous (more than I can count on two hands) vice principals, teachers and staff who have advanced to serve at the district level, they have proven themselves first at the school level, and continue to provide positive, professional service at the district level. Historically, our long-term teachers and administrators are excellent candidates for service at the district level and I fully support advancement of teachers and staff to upper level positions within the schools and for our district.
