Hello, I am Mrs. Machado. I am thrilled to be serving Hare Continuation High School this year as your Principal! I have been an employee of Garden Grove Unified School District since I first began teaching in 2000 and have loved each and every opportunity I have been given. I taught both elementary and intermediate at Crosby, Allen, and Lake before becoming a Teacher on Special Assignment, providing professional development for teachers in our district. I then began to pursue new opportunities in school leadership. After earning my certifications, I served as assistant principal for two years at Eisenhower Elementary and am now here at Hare I hold two degrees, a BA from PLNU in liberal studies and an MS in educational leadership from CSUF. I also hold two credentials, a multiple subject teaching credential and an administrative services credential. In my person life, I love spending time with my husband, sons and dog whether it be hanging out at home or playing outdoors. It has been my pleasure to serve the students and families of the Garden Grove Unified School District and I look forward to continued service here at Hare!
