The administration at Manteca High was made complete with the appointment of Troy Fast as vice principal.

At last Tuesday’s Manteca Unified school board meeting, the former seventh-grade math and science teacher at Mossdale School received a closed session unanimous vote on his promotion.

He joins the MHS administrative team of Doug McCreath, Raul Mora, and Ron Inderbitzin, who is the athletic director.

McCreath and Mora are in their first year as principal and assistant principal, respectively. Both moved up a notch from their previous jobs with the recent retirement of Steve Winter.
Fast has been with the district since 2004. Prior to that, he worked at the Seneca Center in Alameda County as a high school resource teacher.

He attended Simpson University in Redding, where he earned a degree in Diversified Liberal Studies (2002) and a Clear Professional Multiple Subject Credential (2003).
Fast also holds an Administrative Service Credential with a master’s degree in Administration from National University in Stockton.

While at Manteca Unified, he initially taught fifth-grade students at George Komure School. Fast handled the junior high intercession, Leadership, basic math tutoring for fourth- through- sixth-grade students, and served as a Migrant Education tutor.
Fast has been described as “a team player who wants to do what’s best for the students.”

At Mossdale School last year, he took on the responsibility of the junior high leadership class.
In addition, Fast has been involved in coaching high school boys’ basketball. Included are the Northwest Basketball Camps, the All-Star European team (2002) and Manteca High.

He was an assistant varsity coach for the Buffaloes during the 2004-05 season.
