Dear Tennyson High School Community,


The Hayward Unified School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Veronica Estrada as the new principal for Tennyson High School. Principal George Mitsopoulos has decided to transition to a new position within the district, and both he and Mrs. Estrada will collaborate to ensure a smooth transition for our students, staff, and parents. We thank him for all of his passion, energy, and hard work in leading Tennyson these past two years.  


Mrs. Estrada is a “Made in Hayward” leader who attended Winton Middle School and Mt. Eden High School. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, she returned to Hayward and earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from Cal State East Bay. She taught math at Mt. Eden High School and served as a counselor at Winton and Bret Harte middle schools. Since 2015, Mrs. Estrada served as the assistant principal at Tennyson High School and as the lead administrator for the World House program at both Chavez Middle School and Tennyson High School.


Mrs. Estrada has been focused on equity and access to opportunities for all students and is well known for her positive energy, attention to detail, organization, and for planning instructional programs and interventions. In particular, she has been successful in building and supporting strong teams.


Mrs. Estrada enjoys spending time with her family and watching her daughter dance ballet folklorico and play softball. She will be an exceptional principal for Tennyson High School and an asset to the South Hayward community.


The district extends its appreciation to the Tennyson staff who participated in our secondary principal  interview committee. While no viable candidate surfaced from that process, the committee did successfully articulate their values and expectations for effective school leadership. We are confident in Mrs. Estrada’s capacity to build community and bring forward the values that are important to Tennyson. Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Estrada.




Dr.  Matt Wayne, Superintendent

Dr.  Peter Parenti, Assistant Superintendent of Ed. Services              Dr. Lisa Davies, Academic Director, Secondary
