    Maya Angelou once said, “We should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.” 

    To honor our differences and to show how they make our community wonderful, we had students write down things that make them unique or special, we called it “What makes ME me.” In turn, they added those to a large banner that says, “What makes US Lee.” Every student brings something unique and special to our school, and we not only honor that, we value it. We don’t fear our differences, we embrace them. 

    We welcome all parents and community members to stop by our building and add to our wall, after all, you too are an important part of our community, and you’re what makes US Lee. 

    Thank you for your continued support of our community, and if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

    Principal Isaac Cardona

    I am thankful that I get to continue working with the students, staff, and community at Jason Lee K-8, and I am honored that I get to do so as Jason Lee’s new principal.  I originally began my teaching career in Houston, Texas, teaching 7th grade English/Language Arts, but I have had the pleasure of serving in a variety of roles since that time.  I have been an instructional coach, working to coach and develop new teachers, a Dean of Students, Executive Director of an Oregon non-profit, and most recently I served as the Assistant Principal of Jason Lee K-8.  
     
    My wife, a Portland native, and I have worked as educators for over a decade, working in schools throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, and in Taipei, Taiwan.  This past year we welcomed our first child, so we are excited to settle down in Portland, and to lay strong roots within our community.   I’m originally from New Mexico, where I graduated with degrees in Criminology and English, and I hold a Master’s degree in Public School Administration from the Teacher’s College at Columbia University in New York.  As a first generation college student, I believe that there is nothing more important than a quality education.
     
    I look forward to working with Jason Lee students, families, and community members for years to come, and I welcome you to stop by my office anytime.

    Hello Jason Lee School students, families, and staff! Words cannot express how enthusiastic I am to serve your rich community.

    My wife and I have called Portland home for the past 11 years. We have two daughters who are both PPS students at Astor School in North Portland. I was born and raised in Virginia. I graduated with a degree in Biology and, afterwards, served in the U.S. Peace Corps as an Environmental Educator. After moving to Portland and working as an animal keeper and youth mentor at the Oregon Zoo, I acquired my Master’s degree from the University of Portland and began my teaching career in PPS. I come to Lee School after having taught in 3rd through 8th grade classrooms and, most recently, supporting students and staff as a School Climate Coordinator at Ockley Green.

    The work I do is driven by a mission to create a caring and safe environment for all students while providing rich opportunities that allow them to reach their fullest potential. I believe that school should be fun, dynamic, and supportive to our students in ways that cultivate life long learners. I feel so fortunate to be part of the Lee team this year as we continue the wonderful work already occurring. I look forward to seeing you in the hallways at school and around the community!
