We would like to thank Mrs. Susan Hill for her dedication as the Principal of Clearwater Valley Elementary School; it has not gone unnoticed in our community.
She has been the Principal at Clearwater Valley Elementary School since 2010. She started her career in 1979 as a substitute for Riverside County Schools Special Education Department in California; by September 1980 she was a full time aide. She did this for eight years while taking classes to become a certified teacher. She was then hired by Moreno Valley USD as a Work Ability Job Developer finding jobs for special ed high school students. That was a grant funded position and when the grant ended she became a campus supervisor. She was in charge of on campus detention. During this time she was able to work on her credentials.
Once she was certified she became a U.S. History teacher in this same district for six years. She then furthered her career at Beaumont USD and was hired as assistant principal for eight years (for about 1,200 students).
In 2010 she and her husband Dave decided they wanted to move closer to her children and grandchildren and applied and became the principal at Clearwater Valley Elementary School. She has written and received grants every year since she has come to Clearwater Valley Elementary School. Most years CVES received $10,000 in grants and some years she applied for multiple grants and received them here for our school.
In 2017 she applied for a grant for a full time counselor which CVES received in the amount of $20,000 to help with the counselor position. She also wrote the Second Step Grant last year for our school which we received $37,000. This year she wrote a grant and we received $5,000 for the after school Discovery Program.
While principal at Clearwater Valley Elementary, in 2017 CVES received the National Title 1 Distinguished School Award.
We would like to say thank you for your hard work and determination and to let you know we appreciate you and wish you the best of luck on your retirement and your future! You will also be greatly missed by the children in this community!
