    Hello Fabulous Faubion Families,

    It is with great honor and enthusiasm that I write this letter as the new Principal of Faubion PK-8 School. These past two years at Faubion as your Assistant Principal have been the some of the most rewarding and fun years of my career. I am very excited to be able to continue in a leadership role at Faubion, as your principal. As an added bonus, we will have Assistant Principal Gary Gregoricka joining us as well!

    Prior to my time as assistant principal at Faubion, I was a science & mathematics teacher and director of the alternative school, P.A.C.E., at Parkrose High School. Aside from working in the alternative program and mainstream school, I created a free night-school program at the high school. As an active leader in the teacher’s union, I acted as Grievance Chair and represented the high school on the contract negotiations team. I spent a majority of my career coaching varsity level distance running in both cross country and track, a true highlight of my time in east county. Outside of teaching and coaching, I also completed my doctorate degree in education. The focus of this degree is social justice and equity.

    My experiences in Parkrose School District shaped how I viewed the work of an educator. When working with students and families, it is critical that educators encompass all aspects of a student’s needs.  To teach a child is to teach the whole child, and I see the role of the school as the hub of the community.  The school should be an extension of our families. Both families and educators should be one community, nurturing and supporting all of the students at Faubion. I feel blessed to be able to work with our community in a school that houses vital resources and supports, including a robust early childhood program, wellness clinic, mental health services, innovative STEAM teaching/learning resources, and food club. In addition, I enjoy the opportunity to work closely with Concordia’s teaching program, creating enriching programming for Faubion students as well as provide essential learning opportunities for Concordia’s future educators.

    I look forward to the future of Faubion. There is wealth of talent and skill in our students, PK – 8th grade. We also have an incredibly rich and powerful staff and parent community. Please know that my door is always open to our parents, students, and staff. I look forward to seeing you all this August. More information to come on fun events, activities, and our academic goals for the 2018-19 school year.

    Please have a rejuvenating, fun, and relaxing summer!

     

    In partnership,

    Dr. Karmin Williams

    Faubion Principal
