  About Dr. Eduardo Reyes

I have lived in the Chula Vista community for over 35 years.  I am a product of public education and I understand the value and impact that having the right education can have on individuals and on future generations.   Teachers have provided me with the support and guidance I needed to continue my educational path.   This community has also been the home of my daughters and siblings.  I am grateful for everything this city has done for my family and for the opportunities that the school system has provided me.  I want to ensure that the quality of education continues to support students and parents. 

I have over 24 years of experience in the educational field working as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I have a genuine care about student success, working teacher conditions, and working collaborative with all stakeholders, which encompass students, parents, teachers, district, and community.  I am a firm believer that ALL students can thrive if provided the right opportunities to develop their individual potential.  

During my last four years as a board member at CVESD, I have always advocated for our students and our schools.   I have pushed for earlier interventions and more services for our special education students, advocated and supported our visual and performing arts programs, been a watchdog over the finances of the district, strong supporter of teachers and support staff, and promoted ways to increase parent participation and advocacy.   I believe in including all stakeholders in the decision-making process; all stakeholders are equally important in the educational path of our students. 

Below are some of the accomplishments CVESD has had in during my tenure:

I believe on the potential of all students and the importance of providing them with opportunities.  I support academic rigor, but I believe it is equally important to provide opportunities for students to expand their horizons, develop their individual talents, think critically, and become life-long learners.
