Hello Timberwolf Families!

My name is Jill Barrett and I’m excited to join the staff of EMS as the new Principal. I’m very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and a high-quality middle school experience.

Before joining EMS, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 17 years, primarily with the Auburn School District. Some of the roles I have held include 2nd - 9th grade classroom teacher, special education teacher, reading specialist, staff developer, dean of students, and assistant principal.

After many conversations and opportunities to work with staff at EMS, one thing is certain; there is a shared value that student learning encompasses more than just academics. In addition to great instruction, we will continue and grow our work in:

  • Student leadership and student connection to school
  • Social and emotional growth and support
  • Digital citizenship

Lastly, I am forever grateful to Mr. Rabb for the hours he spent with me leading up to the end of the 2016-2017 school year. The generosity of time and wisdom shared was above and beyond anything I had anticipated. As I told Mr. Rabb, I have been pinching myself daily. I am truly blessed to be part of our Timberwolf family!

 

Sincerely,
Jill Barrett
