Another Inland Empire education official has been recognized for outstanding work, this time by California.
Michael Hubbard of the Temecula Valley Unified School District has been named School Administrator of the Year by the California School Resource Officers’ Association, according to a published report.
Hubbard, a former teacher, is now in charge of child welfare and attendance for the district. He has taught fifth and sixth grade and has worked as a resource specialist for kindergarten through sixth grade pupils, according to the report.
Hubbard was special education coordinator in the Hemet Unified School District before he joined the Temecula Valley District.
The California School Resource Officers Association is dedicated to providing a safe and healthy learning environment at all California schools.
The last thing this guy needs is anything of the year. Back in 2007 I had a son who had some serious behavioral issues – at the time he attended French Valley Elementary in Winchester. My son would have these unprovoked violent episodes where he’d throw furniture and he had been suspended so many times he had to be expelled. Nobody asked if there was possibly a mental health thing happening or if he needed to see the school counselor on a weekly basis. The principal, Melanie Aamodt, yelled that he was a 5150 during a re-entry meeting with staff…WHILE MY SON WAS IN THE ROOM!
For whatever reason the school referred me to Mike Hubbard but I didn’t know why, and apparently neither did he. We spoke a few times and with each correspondence I found him to be a rude and condescending liar at best. He spoke to me like I was garbage when I was trying to help my son, all while trying to wrap my head around trying to figure out why he had these issues, a fear of getting fired from my job, and navigating this process blindly and alone. I seriously don’t know how he climbed the ranks but he was NOT a nice person and made sure life was difficult for me. Thankfully he transferred schools and showed signs of improvement after a little bit. I’d watch out for that guy though.
