School district names principal for Los Cerros

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education announced the selection of Phyllis Roach as principal of Los Cerros Middle School in Danville. Roach, assistant principal at San Ramon Valley High School in Danville for the past two years, began her position March 3.

"I am very excited to be joining the dynamic community of Los Cerros," said Roach. "I can't wait to get started and to help build upon the already excellent reputation Los Cerros has in the community."

Roach came to the district in 2006, after 16 years as a science and math teacher and vice principal at Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward. Her first experience as an educator was with the Peace Corps teaching in middle schools in Kenya. She holds a masters degree in Educational Leadership and an Administrative Credential from Cal State East Bay.

Roach is replacing Lisa Ward, who was recently named the principal of Gale Ranch Middle School, the district's newest middle school in San Ramon, which is under construction and scheduled to open in August.
