Hudson Park Families and Community Members,

I am delighted to begin my third year in the Rainier School District. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to nurture and support a dynamic learning community that works collaboratively to strengthen the academic and social achievement of students and the relationship between home, school, and community.  

Before coming to Hudson Park Elementary School, I spent three years as an elementary principal in Klamath County School District and twenty years in the Salem-Keizer School District and Molalla School Districts as a teacher, effective learning teacher, reading coach, instructional coach, assistant principal, and adjunct professor. 

I obtained a bachelor’s degree in English and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Willamette University.  I am presently enrolled at Concordia Chicago University as a doctoral candidate in the Educational Leadership Program. 

I am impassioned about the field of education and setting a tone of academic excellence for our children.  The many hats I wear as an administrator are expansive and challenging but rewarding. Every day brings a new opportunity and reminder of the commitment, resilience, and integrity that a school leader must exemplify for positive change in a progressive school community.   It takes a whole village to raise a child and an even greater community to educate them. 

I am very pleased to be working with a staff and community who take pride in working hard to create and maintain a safe, secure, and fun learning environment for both our children and their families.

I look forward to enjoying a successful 2016-2017 school year with all of you. Please know that my door is always open should you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year. If you need to reach me, I can be contacted at (503) 556-0196. Please do not hesitate to call or stop by to chat.

With You for Children,

Heidi Blakley
