Santa Fe High School has a new Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction for the 2019-20 school year: Lillia Vazquez, a longtime Whittier Union educator whose years of leadership experience will help shape and grow student success and achievement.
“My journey as a teacher began here at Whittier Union and I am very excited to begin my administrative career here as well,” Vazquez said. “I’ve learned a lot about collaboration and working together and I am excited to be a part of the leadership team. I look forward to fulfilling this role with a lot of Chieftain pride.”
Teaching in the District since 2004, Vazquez previously taught computer science at La Serna High School. She has also taught at Whittier and California high schools, serving in a variety of roles over her tenure, including course lead, site data lead, ed tech support lead, WASC focus group leader and summer administrative intern.
Vazquez is one of three educators in the District transitioning to new administrative roles.
“Our new administrators have a history of providing leadership and diligence throughout their careers at Whittier Union,” Superintendent Martin J. Plourde said. “We are excited to see the innovative approaches they will bring to the District community.”
