Message from the principal
It is an honor and a privilege to write my first letter to the families, staff, and students of Cascade View Elementary School as the new principal, effective August 15, 2017.
As I transition from the assistant principal to the principal role at Cascade View Elementary, I look forward to continuing the tradition of cultivating a school where all children learn in a safe environment with high expectations and mutual respect, where everyone experiences the joy of teaching and learning. I believe that we must look upon ourselves as partners working together to build strong relationships as we work toward common goals.
As I make this transition, I am aware of the anticipation and eagerness that accompanies new leadership. Understanding this, I plan to spend the first few months getting to know each of you, so that I may better understand what drives the success of the Cascade View families, staff, and students, then leverage this as we collaborate to lead the school into the next phase of our journey. I anticipate learning about the collective vision and hopes for our school. What is important to you about Cascade View Elementary? How do you envision me supporting you? What do we need to work on? How do we best serve our children?
As your new principal at Cascade View Elementary School, I bring over twenty years of experience as an educator. Before joining Cascade View last year as the assistant principal, I served as the dean of students and principal intern in the Issaquah School District(ISD). Prior to the ISD, I was a teacher working with students in early childhood education and Montessori programs, and with students in private and public school settings (prek-9th grade) in Romania, Canada, and the US.
As we continue our work together this year, you can expect to see my passion for working with your students, and for equity in education, together with an enthusiasm to serve our diverse community of learners.
Again, I am honored to have been selected to serve the Cascade View community as your new principal. It is my hope that through work ethic, collaboration, dedication, and servant leadership, I will gain your trust and respect as Cascade View’s new principal. I look forward to working and learning with our dedicated staff and families to provide the best education for each and every one of our children.
Here’s to the start of a rewarding and transformative school year.
