1 Happy Retiree To Be 🙂

In 1972, Leonard Hernandez started working at Switzer Learning Center as a teacher’s aide and rose through the ranks to become a teacher and eventually Principal in 1988. Leonard has been the administrative leader of Switzer’s Heritage Program for students in middle school and high school with a broad range of moderate to severe learning, social, emotional and behavioral difficulties. He has provided extraordinary commitment to all students and has been a reliable, guiding force for the teachers and staff at Switzer. He has positively impacted the lives of thousands of special education students throughout the South Bay and will be retiring from his position as Principal of Switzer Learning Center after 45 years of service.

We commend and express sincere appreciation to Leonard Hernandez as he celebrates his retirement as Principal of Switzer Learning Center after 45 years of service.
