Loyal Heights appoints new school principal

After some leadership uncertainty at Loyal Heights, a new principal has been appointed to carry out the rest of the school year.

Principal Geri Guerrero has been out on leave, and will not be returning to Loyal Heights, Seattle School Superintendent Denise Juneau announced in a letter to families last week. The new principal will be Michael Berkenwald, former assistant principal of John Hay Elementary.

“Feedback from LHE staff and community indicated the desire for a leader who listens to their voices and perspectives; a leader who cares, is hardworking and transparent, and one who will be visible,” Juneau wrote to families. “Mr. Berkenwald embodies these characteristics, and his extensive school leadership experience make him a great fit for the LHE community.”

Berkenwald earned his BA in history from the University of Washington, and his Master’s in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University. He then received his Principal Certification and Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of Washington’s Danforth Educational Leadership Program.

Berkenwald takes over as principal of Loyal Heights today (Nov. 18) and will remain in the role through the 2019/2020 school year. In the spring, Seattle Public School’s central office will determine if a principal selection process is needed.

“Until then, Principal Berkenwald’s dedication to collaborative problem solving and his commitment to high quality learning for all students, combined with his transformational leadership experience, will be a great fit for Loyal Heights,” Juneau writes.

Wow, these are big changes really. I remember when we got a new principle, it was hard times for our school. He forced all teachers to change the requirements for assignments and classes became more difficult. I even used https://essayontime.com.au/assignment-help-in-australia since I had serious problems with my classes and tasks. I hope this school has more luck with its new principle.

I wish someone could change a new principal at my school when I was studying. The level of teaching was so low that I had to use the assistance of the essay websites, because my admissions papers were so poorly written that it was impossible to show them to anybody

After all, many different factors depend on this, and the success and prestige of the school in the first place. My school and college had great principals, which made learning even more enjoyable. Of course, sometimes there were some unpleasant moments, but very minimal and related to academic performance. I also sometimes asked for help from the paper writing service https://www.rush-my-essay.com/ But I don’t see anything wrong with this, since there can be problems in everyone, the main thing is to solve them correctly and in time.
