She replaced retired principal Antonio Fariñas.
In her farewell address during the send-off program tendered by the faculty and staff of San Juan NHS last January 31, Valoria, an outstanding SBM (School-Based Management) Implementer expressed her gratitude for the support given to her by the school employees, the Parent-Teacher Association, the municipal government of San Juan and all stakeholders for those 2 productive years as SJNHS principal.

School employees also ballooned to more than 100 and all “promotables” were promoted.
“I only did my job. I do not have a talisman or anting-anting but I share the honor with you because if not for your cooperation, we would not have achieved all of these things,” she said.
A division, regional, national trainer and NEAP (National Educators Academy of the Philippines) trainer, Valoria also appealed to all students, employees, parents and stakeholders to sustain everything that were achieved.
“Everything will be useless if we do not continue to sustain what we have begun,” she said.
