Superintendent Scott recently announced the selection of three staff members for new administrative positions: Kona Williams, Human Resources Director; Gustavo Olvera, Coordinator of Bilingual Programs; and OJ Gulley, Assistant Principal of Liberty High School.

Kona began her teaching career at the elementary level in Meridian, Idaho, in 1996.  She then spent two years in Japan where she taught English Communication at the high school level before returning to Idaho in the summer of 1998.  After six years teaching third and fifth grade, she moved to Oregon and taught at Imlay Elementary School.  In 2008, Kona was appointed as Imlay’s Principal then took over as Principal of Eastwood in 2012.  At Eastwood, she has expanded the school’s Dual Language program, increased academic subgroup growth on the State Report Card by using a push-in model for English Language Development, and implemented a collaborative problem-solving model to support student behavior.  Kona will be replacing Lauri Lewis, who is retiring from the District; her official start date is July 1, 2014.  The Eastwood Principal position will be posted on April 16, 2014.

Gustavo Olvera is currently a Teacher on Special Assignment for the Office for School Performance, planning and delivering professional development to Instructional Coaches and Dual Language teachers, creating language assessment tools, and developing model lessons on best practice strategies for English language learners.  This job has been reconfigured into a coordinator position.  Gustavo began his educational career with the Salem-Kaiser School District in 2009 as a bilingual teacher at the elementary level.  He continued in Salem Kaiser as a teacher and literacy coach until 2012, at which time he joined Hillsboro School District in his current capacity.  In addition to his work for the District, Gustavo is also an adjunct professor at Western Oregon University, teaching courses in bilingual and multicultural literature, and is a board member for Oregon’s Alliance for Multilingual and Multicultural Education (AMME) organization.

OJ Gulley is currently Dean of Students at Liberty High School.  He began his career teaching U.S. History, Government, and Economics, and also serving as the Varsity Assistant Coach for both Football and Basketball, at Reynolds High School in 2005.  He came to Liberty in 2009 as a Social Studies teacher, and was named Head Boys Basketball Coach in 2011.  In 2012, OJ assumed the Dean position, where he has managed school-wide attendance and discipline using the Positive Behavior Support Model and Restorative Justice, facilitated staff professional development, and assisted in the design and implementation of Liberty’s School Improvement Plan.  OJ will be replacing Vicky Lindberg, who is retiring from the District; his official start date is July 1, 2014.
