A Message from Farnham's New Principal
June 26, 2019
Dear Farnham Families,
I am so very excited and honored to have the opportunity to be the principal for Farnham Elementary School beginning in August of 2019. I am so committed to continuing to provide a positive school climate where the students feel their learning, voice, and presence make a difference every day. I am ready to be a champion for the students, teachers, parents, and the community as a whole. Please know that to ensure you of a seamless transition I will be working collaboratively with Mr. Matt Hill over the course of the summer.
For those of you who do not know me, I have been teaching for seventeen years with the last seven being at Fammatre Elementary School. I have taught Kindergarten through fifth grade and loved each grade level for different reasons. I have two teenage daughters, one who just graduated from Leigh High School and will be attending Oregon State University in the fall and the other who will be a junior at Leigh High School.
Education and continuous reflection and growth are deeply important to me. I received my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from San Jose State University and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and BA in Liberal Studies from California State University, Chico. I hold both an Administrative Services and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with the state of California.
At each step of my Cambrian journey, I have had the privilege to work with and learn from staff and community members who are brilliant, talented, passionate and above all - dedicated to our students. I have grown both personally and professionally from the broad experiences I have had across the district and my career in education.
I am honored to be selected as the next principal of Farnham. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you and your children during the upcoming school year. I cannot wait to begin working collaboratively with all of you to provide Farnham students with the best possible elementary school experience.
