Tigard, Oregon – Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lisa McCall announced Tarehna Wicker as the new Principal at CFT Elementary.

“Tarehna brings proven experience in instructional design, building student-centered learning environments, and mentor-focused leadership,” said Dr. McCall. “Her dedication to partnering with staff and community to ensure the success of all students will seamlessly advance the work that Principal Blazquez has led. Our sincere thanks to Ryan for his exceptional service and leadership. We look forward to working with him in his new role at NWESD.”

“Tarehna is someone who works hard to cultivate strong relationships with students, staff, and families to ensure that each person feels valued and empowered,” said Nichole Berg, Wicker’s current supervisor at PPS. “She leads with integrity and wants school to be a place of joyful learning within a caring community.”
