Dear Jackson Families,
We are pleased to announce that a new principal for Jackson Elementary School has been selected: Sarah Crane, currently Principal of Ione Community School (a charter school) in Ione, Oregon.
Ms. Crane began her educational career in 2002 as a Special Education teacher for students in grades 5-12 in Lee County, Alabama. In 2004, she moved to Amarillo, Texas, where she taught both general and special education students at the elementary level. She then spent a year as a Behavior Specialist before moving to Oregon in 2009 to become the Special Education Coordinator for InterMountain ESD. There, she assisted twelve school districts with special education services, behavior support, state reporting and paperwork, programs, and teacher training. Ms. Crane was promoted to Special Education Director for IMESD in 2012, and in 2013 she moved into her principal position in Ione. She is currently finishing up her Doctorate of Educational Leadership through Lewis & Clark College.
Ms. Crane is a former Teacher of the Year (Amarillo, TX, 2007-08), and comes to Hillsboro highly recommended. She is extremely excited to be your new principal as of July 1, and we are anxious for you to meet her!
She will be at Jackson next Tuesday, March 17, to work with staff, and will stay to meet with parents at a PTA-hosted event on Tuesday evening from 5-6:30pm in the library. Please stop by to say hello if you have a chance.
It has been our pleasure to serve as co-principals at Jackson, and we look forward to finishing out the school year with you. This is an amazing school with a great staff, outstanding students, and involved families.
Thank you very much for your support!
Kathi Robinson and Lauri Lewis
