"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting
like a snowflake..." Francis Bacon Sr.
We have a multitude of "shining stars" at CVCHS. With over 125 teachers and staff members, CVCHS has many talented and positive staff members who put the focus on kids and love their job!
I would like to recognize a handful of the many staff members who go above and beyond to make a real difference in the life of a school or who demonstrate exceptional talent. I do not want to single them out to embarrass them. Rather, I want to shine a spotlight on a few remarkable staff members who uniquely impact CVCHS and the students who attend.
Helen Bendoyro - Admissions Officer
Helen is truly a difference maker on campus. Her consistently positive, warm, humorous approach causes her to stand out as a real joy for others to associate with. Her tireless efforts to register students, communicate with parents, print transcripts, handle report cards, meet deadlines, and do so much more, yet she remains so positive and friendly! Thanks Helen!
Keo Pierce - Media Assistant (Library)
Keo is so dedicated to getting the job done well! Ordering all the textbooks, scheduling classes in the Library, managing shipments and orders and working closely with students and parents is an endless job. Yet Keo manages all of this with class, organization and teamwork!
Gary Stofer - Financial Literacy Teacher
Gary has taken the Financial Literacy program to great heights, winning awards for his students, bringing in the banking community to hold Financial Literacy Fairs, etc. Gary loves his students and they love him! He is student-centered and always growing and learning as an educator, even after his recent 74th birthday! He is truly a pleasure to have on our CVCHS team!
Alex Geller - Social Studies Teacher
Alex is only in his third year of teaching at CVCHS and yet he has the skills of a veteran! His passion for teaching and motivating students is commendable and his volunteerism in serving as the advisor to the Senior Men's program and fundraising for worthy causes is truly exceptional. Whenever there is a need - there is Alex Geller to step up and support! Thanks Alex!
Sarah Lovick - AVID Teacher
Sarah Lovick is truly a remarkable teacher! In her third year as the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Teacher/Coordinator, Sarah has developed a world-class program that motivates and inspires her students to prepare for college. She teaches them college prep skills that dramatically improve students' grades, attitudes and skills. She takes her students on field trips to various universities, such as Stanford and UC Davis, and these experiences are life-changing!
As I said, there are so many teachers and staff members to shine a spotlight on for going above and beyond, so I will continue to share these highlights from time to time. It is truly a privilege to work with such a talented and positive group of educators who truly make a difference in my life and the life of our staff and students! Go Eagles!
