New Staff: Erin Pope
September 21, 2015
Erin Pope, who previously taught social studies and environmental leadership at Terra Linda High School in Marin, starts her first full-time administrative position at Campolindo as an associate principal.
At Terra Linda, Pope said she “sort of had one foot in the classroom and one foot in the administrative realm for the last several years, doing several things like ASB/leadership, department chair, mentored new teachers. I was a site and then district lead for Common Core implementation.”
Pope applied for the AP position for several reasons: “It’s a really good school and the district is very forward-thinking, so I thought it’d be a good fit for me.”
“I feel very welcomed. There’s a very positive vibe on campus that’s really friendly,” Pope explained.
However, Pope was surprised that there is no “comprehensive” recycling program on campus, coming from a school that had several different recycling bins for paper, cans, and bottles. “We’re trying to change that,” Pope said.
She hopes to help the school more broadly, as well. “I just hope that I do a good job and that I’m a benefit to the campus in some way,” Pope said.
