Meet our Principals

Tyler Hultman, Principal

Elizabeth McClane, Associate Principal

I was born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula until I went to college at the University of Oregon. After graduating with an environmental studies degree, I started teaching preschool and then worked for the YMCA. In 2009, I went to North Carolina State University and began my teaching career the following year. Becoming an educator was the best decision I have ever made, and it brings me joy every day. After moving back to Washington, I worked in Tacoma Public Schools and most recently in Highline Public Schools. 

When I am not at the best elementary school ever, I can be found hiking with my two dogs Gertie and Hollie. I also enjoy long distance running and being outside as much as possible.  During the pandemic I also decided to try indoor bouldering (rock climbing in a gym with short walls) to help me face my fear of heights.  I am always trying to find ways to challenge myself.
