A smile grew on Roxanne Brown-Garcia’s face Tuesday afternoon as she spoke about Vallejo High School’s wall-to-wall career academies and her overall expectations for the school.
Brown-Garcia is in her eighth week as principal of Vallejo High.
“What we (Vallejo High School) are trying to do is build up children for college and career-ready opportunities,” she said.
Brown-Garcia said that she has built pedagogical stance on two principles, which she intends to implement during her time as the principal of Vallejo High School.
“Children are extremely resilient,” she said. “So for me, if I lead through the framework of resiliency theory, I have a better chance of helping my staff understand how strong and courageous my children and families are.”
