"I am honored to be serving my 21st year as the principal at what was the junior high and has now transitioned to Selah Middle School. I can't think of a better school district or building.  Thank you for entrusting us each day to support your student and create a safe learning environment.  Middle school can be a challenging time for students and we embrace each day as a learning opportunity for all of us.  My mission as a building principal is to love on kids, assume the best in each of them, and engage with them on a daily basis.  I make it my goal each day to find the joy in the opportunities presented to me."
