Statewide honor for Pittman principal

Pittman Charter School Principal Adrienne Machado was recognized this week as the Distinguished Administrator of the Year by the California Association for Bilingual Education. Under Machado’s leadership, Pittman established a Spanish-language immersion program in 2010.

From Stockton Unified: “Machado  was cited for her passion and effectiveness teaching bilingual students. Adrienne was a former principal at McKinley School and later the first principal at Pittman in central Stockton, which also serves a large population of Spanish speakers.”

Said Olivia Sosa, director of multilingual education for the San Joaquin County Office of Education, “As an administrator Adrienne is a tireless advocate for improving the education and lives of her students. “She has a profound understanding for the importance of parental involvement and cultural pride.”

Stockton Unified Superintendent Steve Lowder added: “We are very proud of Adrienne. She has demonstrated instructional leadership that has translated into an ever-improving education for her students.”

Machado was honored Thursday in Long Beach.
