  • Announcing New Principal at Cesar Chavez School

    Dear Cesar Chavez School Community, 
    I am pleased to announce T.J. Fuller will be the new principal for Cesar Chavez School. T.J. is currently the principal at Rigler Elementary, a position he has held since 2015.
    T.J. earned his bachelor of science in political science and history from the University of Massachusetts. He then taught fifth grade at R.N. Fickett Elementary and then third and fifth grade at Sarah Smith Elementary in Atlanta, through Teach for America. Simultaneously, he earned his post baccalaureate early childhood teacher certificate from Agnes Scott College. 
    T.J. joined PPS in 2006, where he served as a fourth and fifth grade teacher at Rosa Parks Elementary School for three years. While finishing his master’s degree in administration and leadership from Portland State University, T.J. served as a student management specialist at Faubion K-8 for one year. Upon graduation from PSU, he was assistant principal at Rigler K-8 for two years; vice principal at Robert Gray Middle School for one year; principal at Woodstock Elementary School for two years; and principal at Rigler Elementary School for the past two years. 
    T.J.’s wealth of leadership knowledge and classroom experience will further strengthen the Cesar Chavez community. While at Rigler, T.J. oversaw the Spanish Dual Language Immersion program. He believes in fully utilizing community partnerships to strengthen the academic experience for teachers, students, family and received TechSmart, Flagship and library grants while principal at Woodstock and Rigler.
    He believes in building strong communities, and that an open dialogue between families, teachers and students is essential for success. T.J. wants to work with the dedicated Cesar Chavez community to bring their students academic success for years to come. 
    In his free time, T.J. enjoys watching live music, camping, hiking, and spending time with his dogs. 
    Please join me in congratulating T.J. on being named principal of Cesar Chavez School. We hope you can attend a community meeting to talk with him on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 6pm in the Cesar Chavez cafeteria.

  • Dear Students and Parents/Guardians of Cesar Chavez K-8, 

    Welcome to the Cesar Chavez family! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our Cesar Chavez School community. We are so excited for the 2018-19 school year! Our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We look forward to seeing our returning families, and we are excited to get to know our new kindergarten families and their students. At Cesar Chavez, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, community and we invite you to be an active part of helping students to achieve their full potential.

    We consider it a privilege to work with your kids every day to help them be their very best selves. We believe that each and every student has a gift to share with the world and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help all Cesar Chavez students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. Cesar Chavez aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, academic skills to prepare students for success not only in middle school but also in high school, career, relationships and life-long learning.

    Cesar Chavez students will be taught to view themselves as learners and to think about what it looks like to be an active learner and thinker. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are as important as content knowledge. According to a recent Department of Labor report, 65% of students will be employed in jobs that do not yet exist, so it will be important for all students to acquire the analytical, evaluative, and creative skills to apply such thinking toward becoming successful in the jobs of the future. 

    To help your student be successful in our school, we need to help them understand what is required to be a good learner both inside and outside of the classroom. Talk about qualities and learning behaviors such as: taking positive risks, viewing errors as opportunities, working to recover from a mistake, giving and receiving feedback, asking questions, collaborating with peers, setting goals, planning with a purpose and tracking their own progress. Students need both high challenge and high support to grow as learners.  We look forward to helping students maximize their growth at Cesar Chavez K-8.

    Please continue to visit our website for updates throughout the year. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can reach me at or 503-916-6451. We invite you to be our partners in our work. We look forward to working with families to accomplish great things for our students!
