Susan Wilson | Pleasant Valley Christian School Principal
Susan is originally from Oklahoma, but her family relocated to California when she was young. Since the third grade, she wanted to be a teacher. She graduated with a BA in English from Fresno State and later earned a Life California Teaching credential and administrative certificate. She started her career in the Hawthorne School District as a third grade teacher and later taught both elementary and middle school grades. She met her best friend Michael at a baseball game when he was playing in the Angels organization. They later married, moved to Camarillo, and were blessed with two children and four grandchildren. Susan and Michael have served, and continue to serve the Lord through music.
In 1990, Susan was asked to help start a school at PVBC. She was the first kindergarten teacher. After teaching at the school for 10 years, she became the principal/administrator. She is still in awe of God’s amazing grace which has allowed the school to exist and serve families for 31 years. Pleasant Valley Christian school has operated under the protective care of Pleasant Valley Bible Church and God’s gracious Hand. “ Let them know that this is Your hand; You, O Lord have done it!” Psalm 109:27 This verse can be seen throughout the facility, on the cross wall and even on the floor entering the gym. She is blessed indeed to have known hundreds of students and their families over the years, and prays that each and every student becomes a courageous Christ-follower! to God be all the glory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Her favorite Bible verse comes from David‘s charge to Solomon in 1 Chronicles 28:9. “… serve Him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought.”
