Valley Center Primary School Home

Principal's Message

     I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our Valley Center Primary School families!  My name is José Hernández and I am the proud principal of the Valley Center Primary School. 

     Valley Center has been my home since 1986. I attended the Valley Center schools from third to eight grade.  After graduating from Orange Glen High School, I spent four years at the University of California, Irvine, where I earned a B.A in Political Science.  In preparation for my teaching credential from California State University, San Marcos, I played different roles at the Valley Center-Pauma Unified School District. I started as a noontime supervisor, an instructional aide, an ELD teacher, and then a substitute teacher in grades K-12 from 2001 to 2004.  I completed my student teaching in kindergarten at the Valley Center Primary School and in third grade at the Valley Center Elementary School.

      In 2004, I had the great opportunity to work as a full time teacher in the opening of Farr Avenue Elementary School in the Escondido Union School District.  I taught third and fourth grade and then I worked as a Technology Resource Teacher teaching students and coaching teachers in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.  In 2010 I began working as an Assistant Principal at Mission Middle School, and now I am privileged to be the Principal at Valley Center Primary School.

      You may contact me via email at hernandez.jo@vcpusd.org or you may stop by the office to talk to me.
