Dear Mountain View Community,

I am grateful and excited to start the new school year with you all.

For those of you who do not know me, I have spent the last three years at Aloha High School as an assistant principal, and have fallen in love with the Aloha community. Being invited to serve as the principal at Mountain View is a dream come true. This year is my 20th year in education; I have served as a special education teacher, an English teacher and an administrator at the middle and high school levels. The first half of my career was in southern California. My three children were all born there, and when the oldest was seven we decided that raising kids in Los Angeles was not what we had in mind, so we moved home. Now, my oldest is off to his first year of college at Southern Oregon University, my daughter will be a senior at Beaverton High, and my youngest son will be a freshman at Southridge.

My intent is to support excellent teaching, outstanding attendance, and a respectful and joyous learning environment. We are lucky to have a talented and committed staff who know how to collaborate in order to help our students succeed, who know and love our students, and who are committed to doing the hard work that teaching demands. I am honored to work alongside this dedicated team.

This work is my passion. I do it because our students have the capacity to solve problems we have been struggling with for years. They have the flexible minds and the ability to move between worlds that makes great innovators. Our job is to make sure they have the skills and confidence to be highly successful in their next steps.

This year we will be focusing on improving our attendance rates, and increasing students’ opportunities to read, write and speak about challenging texts. Attendance in the middle years is critical to student success in high school and beyond. Did you know that missing just one or more days a month can have a profoundly negative impact on a student’s ability to stay on track to graduate with a high school diploma?

We are excited to partner with families for student success. I welcome your thoughts, ideas, and feedback throughout our journey together. I am looking forward to meeting many of you at our Back to School Night on September 13th.

Your Fellow Mountaineer,

Wendy Rider
