    Dear Eastwood Staff and Families,

    As you know, we have been seeking a new principal for Eastwood Elementary School, subsequent to Lindsay Garcia’s selection as executive director of elementary schools. Today, I’m pleased to announce that Jose Barraza has been chosen for the position.

    Mr. Barraza has been the assistant principal at South Meadows Middle School since 2013, where he has been a key member of the leadership team alongside principals Becky Rios, Mary Mendez, and Justin Welch. He did his student teaching at David Hill and Minter Bridge Elementary Schools in both 1st/2nd and 4th/5th blend classrooms, and was a 2nd grade Dual Language teacher at Minter Bridge Elementary School for five years before taking on his current role at South Meadows. Mr. Barraza also spent three years as the lead teacher at the District’s Migrant Summer School program prior to his transition. 

    Mr. Barraza has a natural rapport with students, and ability to connect and create partnerships with parents and community organizations. Earlier this week, he was surprised with a Crystal Apple Award nomination from the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce for exemplifying excellence in education. Rooted in equity, grounded in high-quality instructional practices, and committed to ensuring every student has the resources, support, and opportunities to succeed, I am confident Mr. Barraza will do a great job leading Eastwood Elementary School. 

    Please join me in congratulating Mr. Barraza on his new assignment and welcoming him to the Eastwood community.

    Thank you,

    Mike Scott

    Estimados miembros del personal escolar y comunidad de Eastwood:

    Como ya han de saber, hemos estado en busca de un nuevo director para la Escuela Primaria Eastwood, luego de que se seleccionara a la Sra. Lindsay García como directora ejecutiva de las escuelas primarias.  El día de hoy, me complace anunciar que José Barraza ha sido elegido para ese puesto.

    El Sr. Barraza ha sido subdirector de la Escuela Secundaria South Meadows desde 2013, donde ha sido un miembro clave del equipo de liderazgo junto con los directores Becky Ríos, Mary Méndez y Justin Welch. Hizo sus prácticas docentes en David Hill y Minter Bridge en los salones de clase de 1er y 2do grado y en 4to/5to, y fue maestro de lenguaje dual de 2do grado en la Escuela Primaria Minter Bridge durante cinco años antes de su puesto actual en South Meadows. El Sr. Barraza también dedicó tres años como maestro principal en el programa de escuela de verano del Programa Migrante del Distrito antes de su transición. 

    El Sr. Barraza tiene una conexión natural con los estudiantes y la capacidad de acercarse y establecer asociaciones con los padres y las organizaciones comunitarias. A principios de esta semana, fue sorprendido con una nominación al premio Crystal Apple de la Cámara de Comercio de Hillsboro por ejemplificar la excelencia en la educación. Dedicado a la equidad, basado en las prácticas de instrucción de alta calidad y comprometido a asegurar que cada estudiante tenga los recursos, el apoyo y las oportunidades para tener éxito, estoy seguro de que el Sr. Barraza hará un gran trabajo liderando a la Escuela Primaria Eastwood. 

    Por favor, acompáñenme para felicitar al Sr. Barraza por su nueva asignación y darle la bienvenida a la comunidad de Eastwood.
