    Kevin Bacon, Principal


    Dear BEH Families and Community,


    After 32 years of educating Portland area students at the school-building level I have decided to transition to a new chapter in my life as an educator.  My journey thus far has taken me to every quadrant of the city working in school buildings PreK-12: Whitaker Middle School, George Middle School, Jefferson High School, Fowler Middle School, Hosford Middle School and BEH K-8. My last day at BEH will be Friday June 29, 2018.


    I could not have asked for a better place to close this chapter than Boise-Eliot/Humboldt School.  I started my career in 1986 teaching in a majority African-American school and came full circle back to BEH, the last remaining majority African-American school in Portland and the State of Oregon. Many BEH parents and staff were former students of mine when I was a classroom teacher. Not only was it a pleasure being their teacher in those distant years, but it has been an even greater delight working with their children and all BEH students over the last five years.


    I carry nothing but positive, joyful memories of my 32 years of service and particularly my time at BEH. There is no single person bigger than the spirit of our total school. I am confident that the next leader chosen will continue to carry forward the special BEH legacy that was passed to me.


    Thank you, all, for your commitment to Boise-Eliot/Humboldt and your support of me through thick and thin.
