Sierra View gets new principal

By Nancy Gutierrez

Sierra View Junior Academy's newest addition is Principal Isaac Evans.

A graduate of several colleges including California State University, Fresno and Andrews University in Michigan, Evans has a multiple subject credential and Cross Cultural Language Development certificate.

Evans first began work as a missionary in Korea. After graduating from college in 1987 he traveled to Korea as a youth minister. His experience with the students there sparked his interest in education. Upon returning to the U.S. he began working on finishing his master's degree in divinity and receiving a teaching credential. He was simultaneously working in education as a teacher's aide in Los Altos, Calif. and eventually as a teacher in the Visalia Unified School District. He was a third and fourth grade teacher with VUSD for two years.

This is Evans' first principalship, however he was already familiar with Sierra View prior to applying for the position.

"I helped with the schools' Week of Prayer and the Christmas drama," He said. "And I fell in love with the school."

Evans said as the new principal one of his main priorities is school safety.

"I want to make sure that the school is continuously improving on school safety," he said. "There is always room for improvement on things."

Sierra View Junior Academy is a Seventh-Day Adventist private Christian school. There are nine teachers employed there who teach students in kindergarten through 10th grade. For more information on Sierra View contact 592-3689.
