Degrees and Certifications:

Principal, Rajnesh Naicker

I have been in education for 22 years, with local and international experience.  I was born and raised in the Fiji Islands.  I taught at various high schools in the Fiji Islands and in New Zealand.  In California, I taught Math, Chemistry, Physics and AP Physics.  I was Vice Principal at Pittsburg High School, Principal at Dozier-Libbey Medical High School and now, the Principal at Bidwell Continuation High School.  Growing up, I always wanted to work with kids.  I really enjoy what I do.  I am super excited to be here at Bidwell Continuation High School and i'm looking forward to working with the staff and students.

I moved to California from Auckland, New Zealand in 2007.  My wife, Saleshni Narayan is a teacher at Dozier-Libbey Medical High School.  I have two daughters, Riya and Ruhi.  Riya is a freshman at Dozier-Libbey and Ruhi is in the 7th grade at Park Middle School, in Antioch.  I believe every student can be successful if they receive the right help and support.  Education is an amazing and powerful tool that we all can use to change the world.  I enjoy traveling, different landscapes, meeting new people and trying new food from different cultures.  My favorite place to visit is Cancun, Mexico.

The highlight of my career was leading a group of 33 students from Bay Area schools on a 3 week leadership trip to Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
