Our Assistant Principal
Ms. Mai Huynh
2016-17 is our year to SOAR! Go HAWKS!
I am honored to serve as Assistant Principal of Orchard Hills! There is so much to be proud of at this school. Our Hawks truly embody our core values; they Have respect, Act responsibly, Work together,Know our strengths, and Stay safe. Our amazing staff, hard-working students and supportive parents and community are a collaborative effort in making Orchard Hills a World-Class Learning Environment!
I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and earned my Master of Education in Crosscultural Teaching and Master of Science in Educational Administration from National University.
I have been in the field of education for over 20 years! I began my teaching career at La Sierra High School in Riverside, California, teaching courses that ranged from Life Science Reading to Anatomy and Physiology. After eleven years of teaching, I transitioned out of the classroom and into the office, serving as one of four Assistant Principals. In 2008, I joined the Tustin Unified School District as Assistant Principal at Beckman High School, where I worked for the past five years, overseeing Discipline and Attendance, Facilities and Operations, and the Early College Program. I look forward to using my high school background in setting our Hawks on the right path to becoming successful high school students, graduates, and lifelong learners.
I anticipate another exciting year ahead, connecting with and working with the Orchard Hills students, staff, and community in continuing our journey. By incorporating collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking skills into school each day, we are sure to soar. Go Hawks!
