    Dear Groner K-8  Staff and Families,

    It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to let you know I will be leaving Groner K-8 at the end of this school year. Groner is a truly wonderful place to work and learn, and I am forever grateful to have been a part of this community. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I have been appointed to a new position as the principal of Indian Hills Elementary School, starting July 1, 2021. While I am excited about this new venture, I will miss being a part of this team and working with all the wonderful students, staff, and families at Groner. Groner K-8 students are amazing and I know they will continue to be in good hands, being supported and guided by an excellent staff and passionate families.

    Teresa Vázquez, current assistant principal at Lincoln Street, will be the new principal of Groner K-8. A former HSD student, Mrs. Vázquez spent twelve years working as a Dual Language teacher at Vose Elementary School in Beaverton at both the first- and second-grade levels before becoming the assistant principal at Orenco Elementary School in 2016. She has been in her current role at Lincoln Street since 2019, supporting operations and building relationships with students, staff, and families alike. Mrs. Vázquez is skilled in classroom management and curriculum articulation, and is a strong collaborator. I am confident she will make a great addition to the Groner team and that you will enjoy working with her. 

    I truly appreciate everyone who has worked hard to ensure that all Groner K-8 Grizzlies reach their highest academic and social potential during my four years here as principal. It has been an honor to work alongside you and I know you will continue to accomplish great things.

    Estimados miembros del personal escolar y comunidad de Groner K-8:

    Es con emociones encontradas que escribo esta carta para informarles que me iré de Groner K-8 al final de este año escolar. Groner es un lugar verdaderamente maravilloso para trabajar y aprender, y siempre estaré agradecida de haber sido parte de esta comunidad. Groner siempre tendrá un lugar especial en mi corazón.

    He sido nombrada como directora de la Escuela Primaria Indian Hills, comenzando el 1 de julio de 2021. Aunque estoy entusiasmada con esta nueva oportunidad, extrañaré ser parte de este equipo y trabajar con todos los maravillosos estudiantes, el personal escolar y las familias en Groner. Los estudiantes de Groner K-8 son increíbles y sé que continuarán en buenas manos, siendo apoyados y guiados por un excelente personal escolar y familias apasionadas.

    Teresa Vázquez,  subdirectora actual de la Escuela Primaria Lincoln, será la nueva directora de Groner K-8. La Sra. Vázquez es ex alumna de HSD, ha dedicado doce años trabajando como maestra de lenguaje dual en Vose Elementary School en Beaverton en los niveles de primer y segundo grado antes de ser subdirectora de la Escuela Primaria Orenco en 2016. Ha estado en su puesto actual en Lincoln Street desde 2019, apoyando las operaciones y estableciendo relaciones con los estudiantes, el personal escolar y las familias por igual. La Sra. Vázquez es experta en administración de salones de clase y articulación de currículo, y es una gran colaboradora. Estoy segura de que será una gran adición al equipo de Groner y que disfrutarán trabajando con ella. 

    Aprecio con sinceridad a todos los que han trabajado arduamente para asegurar que todos los grizzlies de Groner K-8 alcancen su mayor potencial académico y social durante mis cuatro años aquí como directora. Ha sido un honor trabajar junto a ustedes y sé que continuarán logrando grandes cosas.

Principal's Message

  • Teresa VázquezDear Groner Families,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I am the new Principal of Groner K-8 School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Groner by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    The diverse student population at Groner K-8 School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Groner staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Teresa Vázquez
