• Welcome!

    I am proud to serve as your Associate Principal at Hillview. I support our site around data and assessment, curriculum and instruction, and technology.
    I attended UC Davis where I earned a BS in Managerial Economics. Then, I moved on to Humboldt State University for a BA in History and my teaching credential. I hold credentials in History, English, and Multiple Subjects. Upon graduation from Humboldt State, I taught in Eureka, CA for 9 years, predominantly at the middle school level. Currently, I am finishing my MA in Educational Administration at San Francisco State University.   
    This is my eighth year at Hillview; my first three years, I taught 7th grade English, Social Studies and ASB Leadership, and then I was Assistant Principal for 4 years.  This is my first year as Associate Principal.  I enjoy serving the community of students, families, and staff that make up this incredible school.  
    Outside of school, I love spending time with my family; my husband, also a teacher and school administrator, my 3 kids, and my 2 dogs. You can often find us waterskiing at Clear Lake or visiting friends and family in Humboldt County. If I find a minute alone, I love to read, run, and scuba dive (in tropical waters!).
    I look forward to working with students and families as we experience middle school together. Please feel free to contact me at dobrien@mpcsd.org.
