Welcome to Powell Valley Elementary School!
It is my honor to be the Interim Powell Valley Elementary School Principal. I will be serving in this role from January through June 2020. The search for a Powell Valley permanent principal is continuing with the hope to find the perfect candidate that can start in July 2020.
During the short time I have spent transitioning into this position, it has become clear to me that Powell Valley has amazing students, caring and dedicated faculty and an active and supportive community. I have already witnessed high quality instruction, engaged and actively learning students and hard working adults. I have observed clear implementation of the Powell Valley STEAM Initiative, Project Based Learning and inclusive practices.
For the last four months I have served as the Gresham Barlow School District Interim Executive Director of Student Support Services. I bring extensive administrative experience to this position at Powell Valley, having served as a superintendent, principal at all levels, and held various district office level positions. These experiences and my unwavering philosophy that all students can be successful will provide a strong foundation for Powell Valley Elementary.
As the new decade begins, I look forward to becoming better acquainted with all our students, families and staff!
