Danielle O'Brien, Associate Principal of Hillview Middle School

Danielle Welcome!
I am proud to serve as your Assistant Principal at Hillview.  I support students around behavior and good decision making skills, attendance, and school community and climate.  I work closely with ASB, Service Team, Site Council and Asset Team.  
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.  I recently received my MA in Educational Administration from San Francisco State University.   
This is my seventh year at Hillview; my first three years, I taught 7th grade English, Social Studies and ASB Leadership.  I am now in my fourth year as Assistant Principal and am loving every minute!  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.
