Welcome to the North Victorville Campus!
My name is Michael Moore and I honored to serve as the principal of Excelsior’s North Victorville site.
Honestly, I did not always embrace education and it took me some time to appreciate the value of a well-rounded and unbiased education. A big part of my personal hesitation was my own high school experience. Too often, I met teachers who discouraged me by looking at failures rather than successes. Instead of fighting back by proving those teachers wrong, I gave in and fulfilled their prophecies.
My live changed through trade school and my apprenticeship: I found a passion; I realized that I was good at something; and I excelled! The same happened again when I moved to the United States and started my academic journey. A journey that opened my eyes to the power of education and the importance of being educated!
My philosophy is simple: Encourage students and help them find their passion(s)!
Michael developed his sense of attention to detail as an electrician (journeyman) in Germany. In 2006 he moved to the United States where his academic journey included VVC (A.S.: Child Development), CSUSB (B.A.: Communication Studies / Public Relations), Brandman University (M.A.: Teaching / Teaching Credential in English and Social Science), Riverside County Office of Education (Preliminary Administrative Service Credential), and Brandman University / University of Massachusetts – UMass Online (Administrative Service Credential).
Michael has supported Excelsior’s families as a junior and a senior facilitator at the Victorville campus. He has taught 11th and 12th grade English and ERWC as well as Government, Economics, and Psychology. He has also served as Dean of Students for Excelsior’s Victorville Campus.
Michael is a strong believer in the ability of every student to learn and achieve. He provides students with a supportive learning environment and an “It can be done!” attitude!
