For the first time in the long history of our alma mater, Bulacan’s oldest secondary school will have two incumbent principals.
Ma. Victoria C. Vivo, former science department head of Marcelo, assumed office as principal of the MHPNHS Senior High School last November 10.
Four months earlier, Reynaldo Diaz was designated principal of MHPNHS, completing the two-principals-one-school status in the campus.
Observers of this recent development assume that the two appointments are part of the changes in K-12 program now on its second year of implementation.
That, however, remains to be confirmed officially by the Malolos City’s division office.
The new Senior High principal brings back with her a wealth of experience and achievements earned after receiving her secondary education diploma from the Immaculata Academy of Malolos in 1985.
She received her Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (major in physics) from the Bulacan State University in 1989; a certificate program in physics from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1997 as a DOST scholar; a Master of Arts in science education from the National Teachers College in 2005; and last, a doctorate in education from the same school in 2009 with academic excellence.
Principal Vivo started as a physics teacher in Marcelo in 1990, later on teaching advance physics for Engineering and Science Education Program (ESEP), eventually heading the school’s science department as head teacher VI.
In early 2012, she became officer-in-charge of Malolos City High School – Bungahan, and later on, principal of Bulihan National High School. She was principal of City of Malolos Integrated School – Atlag until her promotion as Senior High School principal in the campus where she started.
She also teaches part-time at the Graduate School of the University of Regina Carmeli, in educational research, field study, and education subjects.
She is a multi-awarded science teacher and club adviser, trainer, and resource speaker both in the division, regional, and national levels.
