School Leadership - Principal Melissa Singletary

  • My Why:
    I am thrilled to be Principal of Robert Lince Early Learning Center Preschool and Kindergarten and am excited to get to know so many children and families. Opportunities for play, choice and strength based observations help us meet the needs of each child as a whole. It’s exciting to see our students excited to learn, developing their skills and making friends each day.

    I went to college at Eastern Oregon University, University of North Carolina at Wilmington and most recently at Gonzaga. I have been in education for 18 wonderful years. I was at John Campbell for 15 years in a variety of roles as an English Language Development teacher, Reading Specialist, an Instructional Coach and an Assistant Principal. I am delighted to be able to serve the community that I love and feel very fortunate to open up this beautiful, new Kindergarten facility.

    My husband and I have 3 children, all which attend Selah Schools. My youngest will be in Kindergarten this year. I whole-heartedly believe in the great work this district is doing and feel fortunate that my own children get to be a part of it! Some of our family’s favorite things to do include kayaking, gardening, playing frisbee golf, watching college basketball games and reading together.
