Meet Principal Michelle Trifunovic
Hello Hawks! A little about me... I grew up in Newport, a small town north of Spokane, on the Idaho border. I graduated from Newport High School in 1988 and attended Gonzaga University, where I majored in Spanish and History.
My career in education started at Holy Names Academy in Seattle, where I taught Spanish, History and World Religions. I became the Activities Coordinator and the Dean of Students. After ten years, I returned to public education, serving as Assistant Principal at Bremerton High School for two years. My family moved back to Seattle and I spent the next seven years at Edmonds-Woodway High School, as Assistant Principal for two years and Principal for five. In 2012, I moved to the Issaquah School District as the Executive Director of Middle School Education. In 2016, I was hired as the CKMS Principal.
I attended Seattle University for my Masters, Principal and Superintendent certifications.
I have three grown boys and my husband works in the Lake Washington School District as a para-educator. I enjoy reading, movies, music and sports. My husband and sons are huge basketball, soccer and Formula 1 fans.
