Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am looking forward to an outstanding year at Cascade View Elementary School. As your principal, I could not be happier to serve this great community! I feel fortunate to work with our talented staff, amazing students and supportive parents. I want to take a few moments to introduce myself and to share a little about me and my past experiences.
Professionally, I have been involved in educating children for the past 32 years with my most recent assignment of being a principal at North Bend Elementary School in our district for the past 11 years. Prior that I served as a principal in the Centralia School District at Oakview Elementary School for seven years. Prior to the principalship I was the assistant principal/athletic director in the Rochester School District at Rochester Middle School for six years. Before becoming an administrator, I was a 4-12 teacher and athletic coach in the Onalaska School District for eight years. Personally I am married, have four children and four grandchildren – yes an empty nest J In my spare time I love to hike, mountain bike the many trails our area provides and spend time with family.
I have genuine concern for students that I work with and have high behavioral and academic expectations. I look forward to making a positive impact on your children as I get to know them through daily interaction and the many events that have been planned for the year.
As you know, you are a vital part of your child’s education. My hope is that we can work together to make this a fantastic year. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, comments, or concerns. I will be happy to discuss your child with you and hope that we can work together to make this a wonderful learning environment for everyone.
I am honored and humbled to be the principal of this school and am confident that it will be a great year for all of us.
