FHS says good-bye to a remarkable vice principal!
Natomas Middle School in Sacramento happily receives our loss as their new Principal!
Marcel Baker has served as a Foothill vice principal for two years, after stints as vice principal at Hart Middle School and assistant principal at an Oakland middle school.
What you probably didn't know about our vice principal is that he used to be a commercial banker in Las Vegas! Compassionate for seeing youth thrive, Baker helped launch a Las Vegas charter school after serving as a mentor for African American youth. At Foothill he continued his passion for serving students who are under served or marginalized by leading a group of teachers and counselors in developing the school's PBIS (Positive Behavioral and Interventions and Support) team and worked as a member of the district's RTI (Response to Intervention) and math teams.
To all of us at Foothill, he was one of the many hard working administrators, who enhanced the lives of our youth with his service, leadership and mentor-ship, We will be sad to see him go.
