Principal - Mike Cannon

Hello John Swett Community, 


I am excited to be with you in my fourth year at John Swett and watching everyone grow into responsible and respectful students.  It is so great to be a part of the John Swett family and assist  students to improve socially and academically.


I am a Bay Area native and graduate of De La Salle high school.  I have been in education for 21 years as a teacher and administrator and still love working in a school setting.  I have two kids in middle school and my wife is a school nurse in the Mount Diablo Unified School District.  I am also around town coaching and watching my own kids play their various sports.


At John Swett, I want all students to receive a well rounded education where they will learn lifelong lessons to be great citizens.  If students give their best effort everyday in all they do, they will have a successful experience at John Swett and beyond.

Please feel free to contact me anytime throughout the school year.  I look forward to meeting and working with all of you.



Mike Cannon
