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.
