Meet Mrs. DeWolfe – Our Principal! 

DeWolfeI live in Portland with my husband, our two boys and dog Walter. I was born in Prineville, OR and have two sisters. Growing up we always had a lot of family around – Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. My grandfather was super amazing. He taught me about rocks, fossils, constellations and the outdoors. I loved learning about the world around me which is why I always wanted to be a scientist. I studied Biology and Visual Arts in college. My first job out of college was working at a cookie factory. It was fun and smelled really good… except in the lab where I worked doing microbe testing on the cookie dough. After a few years there I decided to get my teaching degree. I started out teaching middle school science in Gresham. Five years ago I started teaching online and made the change to being a principal this year. I really like my new job and I love working at ORVA.

Other random facts: I love baseball (Go Giants!! Seriously… it can’t get much worse than last season). I worked at a coffee shop in college which started my coffee mania. I traveled Europe with a choir in high school (I worked at a movie theater and saved everything I could to go on that trip). I have boxes and boxes of fossils and rocks. I am looking forward to painting over Winter Break.
