Principal Welcome

  • I continue to be grateful and excited in having the opportunity to serve the Cascade View Elementary school community and students. This year, the 2020-2021 school year, will be my 21st year as a school principal - and I've loved every moment of it because I think I have the best job in the world. I get to work with kids, and those dedicated school staff who care about kids, every day! 

    I love reading, writing, my family, traveling, student laughter, walking my dog, reading, doing yoga, doing yardwork, giving hugs and fist bumps, anyone who loves kids, Cascade View students, teachers, learning, reading, school, having experiences, going to the ocean, cooking healthy things, the Seahawks (Go Hawks!), reading, and lots of other stuff! Did I mention I love reading?

    As educators, I firmly believe we do the world's most important work. For me, that work is deeply connected to matters of the heart - we cannot tend to our children's minds until we capture their hearts for even our kids don't care how much we know until they know how much we care. For all of us working in school, we simply have to make school the best part of each child's day. When they love us, they'll learn from us!

    As evidence of my commitment to the heart foundation of our work, I invite you to click on this inspiring link - Educate the Heart - on YouTube.

    Welcome to our school - a place of magic for all who come to learn and teach. Our WHY: In our school community, we are passionate about meeting all learners where they are in service of each realizing their innate and extraordinary human potential. This is our great mission! Care to join us?


    Be kind always!
