Announcing Skyline’s new principal BG Aguirre
Dear Skyline School Community, It is with great pleasure that I announce BG Aguirre as the new principal for Skyline School. BG is currently the principal at St. Helens High School, a position she has held since 2013. She served as assistant principal for five years prior to taking over as principal.
BG earned her Bachelor’s degree in sociology and Spanish from Oregon State University, her Masters of Arts in teaching from Concordia University and her administrator license from Portland State University. Following her graduation from Concordia, BG worked as an elementary school teacher in the Beaverton School District, first at Vose Elementary for five years, then Kinnaman Elementary for three years. She spent a year in the Lincoln County School District in Newport, before moving to the St. Helens School District to serve as assistant principal and principal for St. Helens High School in 2008.
BG has proven herself to be an effective school leader and is looking forward to leading Skyline for years to come. She has received International Baccalaureate MYP Level 1 training and IB Administration Level 2 training. BG is also well-versed in successfully running an AVID school. While at St. Helens, BG was an AVID district director, an AVID principal, attended multiple AVID strand trainings and successfully implemented AVID school-wide.
Throughout her time in both the St. Helens and Beaverton School Districts, BG has gone above and beyond her stated duties to ensure that her community thrives. She is a fluent Spanish speaker and is an advocate for all students. She has had great success writing grants and securing funding for intervention programs, professional development and students in need. She deeply values collaboration between teachers, families and administrative staff to ensure the success of the school.
BG is a dedicated wife and mom of three children ages 3, 5 and 7. In her free time, she loves watching her children participate in extra-curricular activities and spending time as a family. BG enjoys reading, playing golf and is an avid runner. BG tells me she is absolutely overjoyed to be back in elementary and to have the opportunity to work in her community. Please join me in congratulating BG in her new assignment as the principal for Skyline School!
Four years ago Latino students at Lincoln High School decided they needed another outlet to express their identity and heritage. With the support of World Language/ Spanish teacher Trevor Todd and other mentors, the Revista (magazine) class was added to LHS’s curriculum to give Latino students a platform to express their voice through a publication named puño & letra.
The three major party candidates to become Oregon’s next governor will discuss issues pertaining to children when the first gubernatorial debate for the 2018 election is held at the Roosevelt High School auditorium from 7-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
