Meet the Principal

Meet our Interim Principal
This is Mrs. Perez's third year at Victor Elementary School District and Challenger.   For the past two years, she has been the Assistant Principal at Challenger. She came to VESD because of their student focused philosophy, school autonomy, and the family community. Mrs.  Perez went into administration because she wanted to be able to support all teachers and students. 

She began her career in education as a parent volunteer, proctor, substitute teacher, and then started in a kindergarten teaching position.  She has taught all grades kindergarten through sixth, served as an outreach consultant and data coach.   When she started college, while working as a proctor, Mrs. Perez wanted to be an accountant.  She soon realized that her heart and soul were with the school and went on to pursue teaching credential. Making a positive impact on students and teachers became her driving force. She left her previous district of 22 years to come to VESD and insists it's one of the best decisions of her life. 

Mrs. Perez has a Bachelor's in Business Administration with an emphasis in accounting and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration, both from California State University San Bernardino.  When she is not at Challenger, she enjoys spending time in her backyard with her dogs and pool, relaxing with her husband, and enjoys spending time with her family.
