Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rina Shriki

I am entering my 17th year in Portland Public Schools.  During this time I have worked in many roles, mostly within Special Education.  My most recent position was Assistant Principal at Harriet Tubman Middle School.  I have had the opportunity to work as an Intensive Skills Classroom Teacher, a Special Education TOSA, and a Special Education Program Administrator supporting K-8 students and staff.  It has been a priority of mine to ground myself in school community.


  • I believe in building strength-based authentic relationships with youth 
  • I believe in leveraging students’ experiences, interests and gifts to increase engagement and build greater student achievement. 
  • I believe every student, especially those living with the burden of institutionalized racism and its impact, must feel welcome, valued  and included.
  • I believe if we create systems that ensure the success of our most vulnerable students, all students benefit and meet our highest expectations for them as individuals.

I have two young children, who often join me at school events.  I look forward to joining you and your children as we learn and grow together.
