The Hermiston School District has selected a new principal for Desert View Elementary School. Lauren Jacobsma will be recommended to fill the position at the school board meeting on Monday, June 12.
Jacobsma is an instructional coach at Oakridge Elementary, and taught third through sixth grade at that school from 2006 to 2015. As an instructional coach, she has worked with teachers to help them use data to make decisions about students, and helped implement Smarter Balanced testing at the school.
“I am very excited about the next step in my career,” Jacobsma said in a statement. “I am appreciative of my time in Oakridge, but I am looking forward to joining the Hermiston School District and Desert View community.”
