Dear Cascade families and community members,
thrilled and honored to be joining the Cascade community as your principal. In
the coming months, I look forward to meeting many of you and learning about
your children. In my time in education, I have been a teacher in New Orleans
and Seattle, and an administrator in Boston and most recently in Highline.
Cascade, we are fortunate to have a student body that represents the diversity
of White Center with over 20 languages spoken and many cultures represented.
We have dedicated staff who work each and every day to provide an excellent education
for our students.
mission at Cascade is to create responsible, lifelong learners in a safe and
respectful environment where all are inspired to excel, value their community,
and celebrate diversity. We have many programs at Cascade that support our
mission: World Language, after school classes through Community Schools
Collaboration, and robust professional development for our teachers across all
subjects. I am excited to share that one way we are carrying out our mission
this year is by becoming a Blended Learning school with more technology to help
our teachers individualize their instruction. This means we can better support
students who need extra help and we can push students who need extra challenge.
Students will have more independence working with technology, and teachers will
be freed up to provide more attention to small groups and individual students.
voice is critical in making our mission come alive at Cascade. We need your
input and support. I encourage you to join me for monthly Coffee Chats with
the Principal. Consult our Family Bulletins under the "News" section of our webpage and the calendar as well for additional activities and events at Cascade. My door is always open, so
feel free to stop by and introduce yourself anytime!
to a great year at Cascade!
