Mrs. Jennifer Vacek

Welcome, 7th Grade Golden Bears! I am excited to serve as your 7th Grade Assistant Principal this year. 

Personal Mission: As an instructional leader, it is my mission to create an all-inclusive learning environment in which students and teachers feel safe, supported, and free to make mistakes in order to learn and grow. I work to empower students, teachers, and other school leaders to take ownership of their growth and learning in order to develop supports and interventions that enhance the community of teaching and learning and work to foster a community of student-centered learning and growth. I am an advocate of building and fostering strong relationships and establishing a culture of collaboration and reflection as a means toward growth, improvement, and academic achievement. 

As an Educator: I believe in the power of challenge, connections, and community. I am dedicated to developing a grade-wide culture focused on positivity and care for one another so that we may all work together to empower all of our Golden Bears--students and staff members alike--to strive to be the best versions of themselves. As an educator, I am also committed to ensuring that the social, emotional, and academic needs of all students are being met.
