         Dr. Johnny Alvarado is the new principal of Bullard High school. At  53 years old Dr. Alvarado has multiple degrees including a doctorate in educational leadership. Dr. Alvarado has taught in 3 different school districts, Clovis, Fresno, and Sanger unified, and been principal in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. Now that you know who Dr. Alvarado is I can tell you wants to do with Bullard High School.  Dr. Alvarado wanted to come back to Fresno Unified school district and he decided to come to Bullard because of it’s history of success. He intends to make the Bullard environment more successful academically and behaviorally and help get the kids ready to go to the next level. He also said that he knows all the kids at Bullard want to have fun but at the same time he hopes they still work as hard as they can and don’t get distracted by all the things around them. He said ‘The biggest challenge is to make a good system to help children succeed in such a small amount of time, 8 to 2:50 pm in the afternoon and only 180 days.” Lastly Dr. Alvarado said  “The best thing about Bullard is the involvement.” By that he means everyone including staff, parents, and students all want to be involved in helping others.
