Victor Mendoza is the new middle school principal for the Sisseton school district. He comes to town from California, where he was in education for 18 years, as a teacher and then as a principal. He arrived in Sisseton in January and was a fifth grade science teacher through the spring term last year.

“It’s been a blast to be here,” said Mendoza, who specifically sought out education employment opportunities in South Dakota.

“I just didn’t feel like I fit in in California and South Dakota aligned with my beliefs,” he said. He responded to an online listing for a position at the middle school.
