Meet the Principals
Meet Principal Megan Botulinski
Hello Eagles! A little about me...I grew up in Leavenworth and graduated from Cascade High School and Gonzaga University, where I majored in Spanish and secondary education. Previously I taught at CKMS, TFMS, and MSHS and was the varsity girls basketball coach and assistant track coach, as well as activities coordinator at MSHS. I attended the University of Washington for my Masters and Principal Certification (the Danforth Program, 2015 Grad) and served as the assistant principal at TFMS from 2014 through 2019. I am currently the principal at SMS, which we re-opened as the third middle school in our district in the fall of 2019.
My husband, Steve, is a history teacher at MSHS. He is also the varsity football coach and head girls golf coach. We have two young children, a boy and a girl. I love the outdoors — especially hiking, skiing, paddle boarding/kayaking, and swimming. I love to travel and am a huge sports fan (Seahawks football and Gonzaga basketball in particular)!
