My second summer in Renton is coming to a close and school is right around the corner. The family and I went to the firework show at Coulon Park and the Renton River Days parade and had way too much fun. I ran into a follow parade goer who asked, ‘why are you cheering so loud for the Lindbergh Cheerleading squad?’ I responded by telling him ‘Those are my kids!’ I am very proud and excited to be a part of the Lindbergh family.
To share a little about my background: this will be my 16th year in education and 8th year as an administrator. I began my career as a teacher assistant in Oregon, taught in Virginia, and was an administrator in the District of Columbia, and Bellingham. This is my second year in the Renton school district.
Last year we built (and will continue to build) relationships with students, parents, and the community. This year we will continue that work by refining the idea of relationships and parent partnership to promote excellence. Every year Lindbergh puts together a school improvement plan. Last year we pulled ideas from staff and administration. This year we want to pull ideas from students, parents, and the community. I will schedule some dates in September for ‘coffee and conversation’ about the how to make sure our school fits the needs of our students.
Please help me welcome two new assistant principals: Becky Lamb (assistant principal), Colin Falk (assistant principal). We will continue to focus on relationships.
The district is providing Chromebooks for students and they will be issued the second week of school after the students receive training. Please see the Lindbergh High School 1:1 Chromebook here on our website for details.
