 On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to Buchanan High School home of Bear Nation.  It is our goal to create a first class experience for all students, parents and the community.  Our staff takes great pride in living the philosophies and traditions Doc Buchanan has passed on to each of us.  We truly believe in, “A Fair break for every kid” and developing the mind, body and spirit of all students.  We are committed to carry on the vision and traditions that have helped shape Buchanan High School into one of the top educational institutions in the country.
The 2020/2021 school year will be my fourth year as principal at Buchanan High School. My journey in education began 19 years ago being hired to teach 4th grade at a Buchanan area elementary school.   I have been lucky enough to work in Clovis Unified as a teacher, Athletic Director, Deputy Principal, and Director.  The community of Buchanan is truly amazing and my family and I are very excited to be a part of Bear Nation.  I cannot wait to have the opportunity to meet our community throughout the year. 
 Our staff is very excited to work with our Buchanan community and partner to help each student reach their full potential.   Bear Nation is a very special place and we are looking forward to an outstanding school year!
