Welcome Jaime Noack!

Dear Prairie Mountain students, families, and community,

It is a pleasure to announce to you that Jaime Noack has been selected as Prairie Mountain’s new assistant principal. Jaime comes to us with 15 years of experience in education at several different roles: tutor, elementary teacher, elementary assistant principal, and middle school assistant principal. Jaime is from Corvallis, but has spent the last 15 years serving students and families in several different places. She was a private tutor in Saudi Arabia, an elementary teacher in Guatemala, and a teacher and administrator in North Carolina. Jaime is thrilled to be with us and can’t wait to start next year on the Mountain.

Here’s a message from Jaime:

Hello Prairie Mountain Families,

I hope this message finds you all well.  I am beyond excited to join the Mountain as your new assistant principal! I wanted to take the opportunity to share a little information about myself, and I look forward to learning about each of you in the days and months to come.

I grew up in Corvallis, but after high school the opportunity to play soccer and attend the University of North Carolina at Greensboro came and I haven’t lived at “home” since. I earned my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and taught for eight years as a third and fifth grade teacher in both North Carolina and Guatemala (with a one year stint as a tutor for a Royal Family in Saudi Arabia in-between). I was awarded a North Carolina Principal Fellowship that allowed me to go back to school and complete a full-time administrative internship.  Since earning my Master’s in School Administration, I have spent the last four years as an assistant principal at the elementary and most recently middle school levels. The thought of being at a K-8 school, where my love for elementary and middle school can meet, is amazing!

Outside of school, I love spending time outdoors with my family. My husband, Guillermo, and I have two girls – Jessie (6) and Mia (2). We also have a German Shepherd (Max) who has traveled with us since living in Guatemala.  We are all thrilled to be coming “home” and starting our new adventure in Oregon.

I have loved learning about all the wonderful things that make Prairie Mountain School such a wonderful community, and I look forward to partnering with all of you to make this a fantastic school year!

My best,
Jaime Noack

Please join with me in sending a big Prairie Mountain welcome to Jaime Noack.

Thanks again,
RW
