CCS Welcomes New Head of School

The Board of Trustees of Cascade Canyon School is delighted to announce the appointment Michelle Herron as the new Head of School, beginning July 1, 2015. Ms. Herron comes to CCS from the International School of Panama (ISP), a very highly regarded international school, where she has served as Elementary Principal.

Prior to ISP, Ms. Herron served as K-8 Principal of a high achieving public school in Bend, Oregon. There, she spearheaded expansion of school-wide experiential learning opportunities, oversaw the integration of arts into the core curriculum, and managed all aspects of the school’s operations. Ms. Herron brings 20 years of teaching experience at the middle and high school levels, and holds a Master of Education (M.Ed.) from Oregon State University and an Education Specialist (EdS) in Educational Leadership from Lewis and Clark College.

The Board was particularly impressed with Ms. Herron’s breadth of leadership experience and commitment to academic rigor and social-emotional education as mutually supportive parts of a strong K-8 curriculum. Upon accepting the position Ms. Herron stated in an email to the school community, “It is clear that CCS has a rich tradition of excellence. The teachers are passionate about their work and are expert practitioners.I am very excited to be part of such a vibrant learning community.”

With great admiration, the Cascade Canyon School community prepares to say good-bye to outgoing Head of School Ms. Rebecca Hausammann. After eight years of remarkable leadership, Ms. Hausammann leaves a thriving school with a strong progressive curriculum, a deep commitment to academic excellence, and an exceptional team of faculty and staff.  She will be missed and appreciated always for her significant contributions.
