Principal's Message

Dear Willard Families, 
Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

am excited to introduce myself as the newest member of the Willard family as your incoming Principal.  As your new principal, I am honored to serve the Willard Community and truly believe these are the most formative years in your child's life.  This is my first year in Garvey School District.  I come to you from Pasadena Unified where I most recently served as an Instructional Coach/Resource Teacher for 2 years, PUSD Early Interventionist for 6 years, and classroom teacher for 4 years. 

I have had the honor of meeting our staff over the summer.  The Willard staff is committed to making this year our greatest year.  We are excited to build relationship that are grounded in the belief that learning hinges on the relationships between teachers and families.  I am committed to working with your children to advance and achieve success.   I will advocate and foster a school environment that enables all students to be successful in the 21st century workplace.

If there is anything I can ever do to help you or your student(s) please let me know. I want to partner with the Willard parents! Our shared commitment to our student’s academic growth will ultimately lead to success!


I know this is going to be a great year!


Mr. Jeff Maljian, Principal
