Dashield D.S. Bright

Principal & 6-8 Grade

I have accomplished my Bachelor's and Master's in Electrical while in a multicultural environment; I'm blessed to be bilingual in (English and Mandarin Chinese). At times, I can become very passionate in innovating and creating projects in a dynamic environment, and I hope that I can pass that on to our children. 


I am excited that I will be meeting each one of you soon, and hopefully, we get to discuss any
inquiries anyone may have. I would like to continue to ask for your support and prayers as parents as we transition with a new administration. I hope that we can collaborate for overall
developmental success.

Mr. Valencia earned his Theology decree from Central Philippine Adventist College and his Master's degree in Social Studies in Education from Adventist University of the Philippines. He has worked for almost 15 years in the field of education. He discovers that the classroom is a perfect place to start the positive change he wants to see in the world. He is known to be a positive, warm, and genuinely caring teacher who finds joy in his students' success inside and outside the classroom.

Jessica Bright


My name is Jessica Bright. I am the new Kindergarten teacher for this new year cycle, and I am very happy to join this team and can’t wait to meet each one of the children. I have been teaching for a little over 8 years. 


I enjoy the Kindergarten level because I can encourage the children to love learning. Building the foundation of their education is essential to a more vigorous learning journey, and I hope with God’s help, I can contribute to that. I am multilingual (English, Spanish, French) and I love singing a lot in my class. I really hope this year we can make the best of every opportunity and that our children can reach many milestones.
