Principal

  • Fall 2017

    Hello Marvista Families, It is with great enthusiasm that I serve in my fourth year as the principal at Marvista Elementary School. I am so proud to support students, teachers and families at this amazing school!   

    This fall marked my twelfth year of School Administration. Prior to being the principal here, I was the principal of an elementary school in the Lake Washington School District for four year and prior to that I served as a High School Assistant Principal for four years in Lake Washington. I completed my Principal Internship and began my teaching career in Highline.

    I have a passion for education, equity, and social justice. I share the district’s belief that every student should be known by name, strength and need and graduate ready for college, career, and citizenship. To accomplish this critical goal I assure you I will:

    • be visible and accessible to students, staff, and families
    • build on and support a tradition of academic success
    • ensure all students have access to high quality instruction in all classrooms
    • engage families and the larger Marvista community in a variety of ways
    • engage stakeholders in decision making
    • make all decisions based on what’s best for ALL kids

    I invite you to reach out to me with your thoughts, ideas and questions. Open communication is very important to me. To this end, I send a weekly letter to all families during the school year which is intended to keep parents in the loop on things happening at school. These letters are archived on our school website in case you miss one.

    Have a great year!

  • Why Run a Levy? Hear From a Student

    There is a gap between what the state funds and the education Highline provides to students. Levy funds make up the difference. Mount Rainier High School student Cassidy Huff explains why we have the bond measure on the ballot and what it will fund.

  • Share Feedback on Later Start Times

    We are making plans to change to a later start time for high schools. This is in response to feedback from students, families and staff, as well as research that shows teenagers do better in school when they can sleep later.
