    Dear Minter Bridge Families,

    I am writing to you today to share some news about your new principal.

    I previously wrote to you on May 24 announcing that Robin Farup-Romero, principal of Reedville Elementary School, would be filling the vacancy left by Erika Pierce as she moved to Rosedale Elementary School. However, Ms. Farup-Romero subsequently pursued and was selected for an opportunity in Salem, where she worked prior to joining the Hillsboro School District. Not only was the position a good fit for her professionally, but she felt the move back to Salem - where she has an existing support system and connections to the community - would be good for her daughter. 

    Therefore, we renewed the search for a new principal and have selected Martha Rodriguez for the position, effective immediately. 

    Ms. Rodriguez was a dual language classroom teacher at Minter Bridge for six years before assuming her current role as an instructional coach at Eastwood Elementary School in 2016. As an instructional coach, Ms. Rodriguez collaborates with teachers on evidence-based practices and models lesson delivery. She also supports school-wide climate and culture efforts while integrating trauma-informed practices, and helps coordinate Right Brain programming. 

    For the past three summers, Ms. Rodriguez has served as the principal of the District’s summer school program, overseeing several hundred students spanning grades K-12. As principal, she creates the master schedule, coordinates special events, and develops and aligns curriculum, instruction and assessments, among many other duties. 

    Because of her deep experience with dual language delivery and proven instructional leadership, I am confident that Ms. Rodriguez will do an excellent job as your new principal. 

    Ms. Rodriguez is excited to return to Minter Bridge to reconnect with former colleagues, students and families, and also to meet and build relationships with those who have joined the school in her absence. 

    She will be sending a letter to families within the next few weeks to introduce herself and talk about important back-to-school activities. 

    Please join me in congratulating Ms. Rodriguez on her new position and welcoming her back to the Minter Bridge family.

    Estimadas familias de Minter Bridge:

    Hoy, escribo para informarles algunas noticias sobre su nueva directora.

    Anteriormente, les escribí el 24 de mayo anunciando que Robin Farup-Romero, directora de la Escuela Primaria Reedville, ocuparía el puesto vacante que dejó Erika Pierce cuando se trasladó a la Escuela Primaria Rosedale. Sin embargo, la Sra. Farup-Romero solicitó y fue seleccionada para una oportunidad en Salem, donde trabajó antes de unirse al Distrito Escolar de Hillsboro. No solamente era el puesto adecuado para ella profesionalmente, sino que sintió que regresar a Salem, en donde tiene un sistema de apoyo existente y conexiones con la comunidad, sería bueno para su hija. 

    Por lo tanto, continuamos nuevamente con la búsqueda de un nuevo director y seleccionamos a Martha Rodríguez para el puesto, efectivo inmediatamente. 

    La Sra. Rodríguez fue maestra de salón de clases de Lenguaje Dual en Minter Bridge durante seis años antes de asumir su rol actual como capacitadora de instrucción en la Escuela Primaria Eastwood en 2016. Como capacitadora de instrucción, la Sra. Rodríguez colabora con los maestros en cuanto a las prácticas basadas en la evidencia y modela la enseñanza de las lecciones. Ella también apoya los esfuerzos en cuanto al ambiente y cultura en toda la escuela mientras integra prácticas informadas sobre el trauma, y ayuda a coordinar la planificación e implementación del programa Right Brain. 

    Durante los últimos tres veranos, la Sra. Rodríguez se ha desempeñado como directora del programa de la escuela de verano del Distrito, supervisando a cientos de estudiantes en los grados K-12. Como directora, ella crea el programa maestro, coordina eventos especiales y desarrolla y alinea el currículo, la instrucción y las evaluaciones, entre muchas otras funciones. 

    Debido a su gran experiencia con la enseñanza de Lenguaje Dual y su liderazgo hábil en la instrucción, confío en que la Sra. Rodríguez hará un excelente trabajo como su nueva directora. 

    La Sra. Rodríguez está emocionada de regresar a Minter Bridge para volver a conectarse con sus colegas, estudiantes y familias anteriores, y también para reunirse y establecer conexiones con las personas que se han unido a la escuela durante su ausencia. 

    Ella enviará una carta a las familias dentro de las próximas semanas para presentarse y hablar sobre actividades importantes relacionadas con el regreso a la escuela. 

    Por favor, acompáñenme en felicitar a la Sra. Rodríguez por su nuevo puesto y a darle la bienvenida a la familia Minter bridge.
