Principal - Mike Cannon

Hello John Swett Community, 


I am excited to be going into my second year with everyone and seeing students continue to grow.  It is so great to be a part of the John Swett family and seeing students improve socially and academically.


I am a Bay Area native and graduate of De La Salle high school.  I have spent my professional career in San Ramon Valley Unified as a teacher and assistant principal for 14 years and more recently in Walnut Creek as a principal.  I have two kids in elementary school and my wife is a pediatric ICU nurse at Children's Hospital in Oakland.  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
