Espe next Park Middle School principal
Espe has been an assistant principal at Park Middle School for the past 14 years. She worked as a special education teacher for two years at the school before moving into an administrative position. Prior to coming to Kennewick, she worked in the Pasco, Richland and Finley school districts as a special education teacher.
“I look forward to continuing to support Park’s culture of safety, continuous improvement for teachers and students, and an open line of communication with staff, students and the community,” state Espe.
She will replace Kevin Pierce, who was recently hired as the principal of Kennewick’s new Middle School #5 located at Southridge Boulevard and 27th Avenue that will open in early 2017.
Espe earned a Bachelor of Science in Special Education K-12 from Minnesota State University and a Master of Education in School Administration from Washington State University.
