Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! 

 

My name is Melodie Huynh, and I have been the Principal here at Hidden Hills for the past five years. 

 

I have been in the field of Education for the past twenty-two years.  After graduating from the University of Victoria, I began my career teaching middle school on Vancouver Island.  I then moved from Canada to California and started teaching high school Special Education at Castro Valley High School.  After that, I taught in the elementary grades for ten years (mostly at 5th grade).  I was then asked to lead our Summer School program and become the Principal of Palomares Elementary.  After multiple years in this role, I took on the added responsibility of serving as a Curriculum Coordinator at the district level.  My last few years in Castro Valley were in the role as Principal of Jensen Ranch Elementary.  I have been very fortunate to serve in exceptionally high-performing schools where academics are a priority, and families are involved and invested . . . not only that, but we have great kids!

 

I have two children of my own, Ethan and Matthew.  Ethan is starting his first year of college this fall, and Matthew is starting his sophomore year of high school.  I am also working on obtaining my doctorate degree in Organizational Leadership.  I love to learn, and I hope to instill this passion in our students every day!

 

My door is always open.  Please let me know how I can make this year the best ever for you and your children!

Welcome
