Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I hope that you have enjoyed your summer, had a chance to relax and are feeling reinvigorated for the new school year. I am humbled and thankful that you have provided me with the amazing opportunity to join your team. As my family and I continue to settle into the community, we continue to feel blessed to be able to come to a community and school district where everyone is so welcoming and making us feel at home. Thank you for sharing your community, your school district, your children and yourselves with us.
In July, I had the opportunity to attend an EL Education leadership induction conference with Mr. Corvino. It was a great experience that helped me understand the special opportunities that this approach to education provides for our students. We continue to work toward our elementary, middle and high schools being credentialed by 2020. The credentialing process is pretty rigorous. Our schools get to show EL how our students master content, how we partner with our students to develop good character traits and we get to show off the high quality work that our students produce throughout the year. I look forward to partnering with you to deepen my understanding of EL Education.
I’d like to thank our voters for their continued support of our students through passing both levy measures last spring. Investing in our students is investing in our future, and your dedication to supporting the Kettle Falls School District shines a bright light on how incredible our future will be.
I look forward to seeing you around the community and our schools. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or just say hi.
