Hello families of Tulalip Heritage High School, and community members of the Marysville School District,

It is with great honor I serve as the Principal of Tulalip Heritage High School in the Marysville School District. I am excited to lead our students, staff, and community in the transition to the Big Picture Learning Model. I am committed to ensuring that Indigenous culture, ways of thinking, and knowing are integrated into our academic programming. I have hope for healing of past injustices and for paving a strong and collective path forward for our youth. I am thankful to have such an amazing partnership with the Tulalip Education Division and am looking forward to building strong relationships with many others in the Tulalip Sovereign Nation.

Big Picture Learning is a student-centered approach, putting student interests at the heart of their schooling. With the help of our community partners, students will engage in authentic real-world and rigorous learning. Students will grow in 5 key areas: Personal Qualities, Social Reasoning, Empirical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Communication. Students will develop their independence in ways that are intended to grow and support the community.

If you are interested in being a part of our community please do not hesitate to directly reach out to me. Email
