Greetings parents and community,
Welcome to the new year at Moses Lake High School! I am privileged to serve in a new capacity as principal this upcoming year. Twenty-two of my thirty-three years of being in education have been at Moses Lake High School - twenty as a math teacher and two as an assistant principal. Needless to say, my heart lies with the community of Moses Lake High School. I look forward to the work that lies ahead that will lead to empowering our students to become independent thinkers as well as productive, contributing members of our community. It takes all of us...students, staff, families and the community...to provide the best learning opportunities for our students!
We are committed to providing students with opportunities to challenge themselves, make sense of their learning, and to pose and discuss great questions. In today’s world, it is important that students leave Moses Lake High School with a strong foundation so they can compete in the ever-changing economy. Whatever route a student chooses to pursue after high school, it is imperative they are prepared. Moses Lake High School has many opportunities for students to do just that. We want students to take the fullest advantage of their high school education. As a result, our students have full schedules and are encouraged to have at least one class that challenges them. It is through challenge that students truly stretch and grow. A rigorous, high-quality education for ALL students not only makes them well-rounded, but gives them the best preparation for life beyond high school. Yes, there are bumps in the road when excellence is sought. Through support, teamwork, and acknowledging that such struggles and mistakes are necessary, growth occurs. AND, this, coupled with grit and persistence is cause to celebrate and acknowledge that these are signs that our students are learning at high levels. Learning is about growth and embracing high expectations together!
Thank you for your support, concern and interest in our students’ education! I anticipate an exciting year ahead of us!
