Mrs. Kadrmas

Good Afternoon West Orient Families and Community,


I am excited to be joining the West Orient community as the new principal of West Orient Middle School! It is also great to be returning to the Gresham-Barlow School District where I spent the first eight years of my administrative career. GBSD has always had a special place in my heart and it feels great to be back!


I have had the pleasure to work with Ms. Catanese and Mr. Gestrin throughout the past few weeks to ensure a smooth transition for the 2022-23 school year. My goal as the incoming principal is to continue to support all of the great work that has occurred at West Orient Middle school over the past several years for students, staff, and families! 


A quick bit of information about me, I will be starting my thirty-first year in education this fall. I have spent half of that time at the middle school level as a teacher and administrator. Throughout my journey, I have been a principal for seven years and believe in the critical work that occurs at the building level to help students be successful. On a personal note, I am married and have two daughters who keep us busy, even though they are in their early 20’s. When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, baking, playing golf, and spending time with my family.


I look forward to the opportunity to meet all of you in the days to come. 


Enjoy the remainder of your summer break!




Becky Kadrmas

Principal, West Orient Middle School
