Dos Palos Elementary Family:
My name is Sergio Padilla and it is my honor to introduce myself as the new Dos Palos Elementary Principal. To everyone who is returning to, or are joining the Stallion family for the first time - Welcome! I can’t wait to meet all of you and your students.
While I am new to the campus this year, I am not new to Dos Palos. I come to you as a lifelong resident and product of our school system, having graduated Dos Palos High School in 2004. Together, with my wife Samantha, and our two children, we call Dos Palos home.
Since 2007, I have worked for the district in different positions that include a coach, substitute, special education teacher, and administrator. With this, I bring a wide range of knowledge and experience to the DPE family.
My goal for DPE is to provide a safe and fun environment for our students while they receive the best education possible. I’m a firm believer in the power of education and its ability in helping to build better futures for students.
I look forward to serving the students, staff, and community of Dos Palos and hope we can all look forward to a great year together!
With oceans of gratitude,
Sergio R. Padilla Jr.
