Felicie Becker has been selected as the interim principal at Quincy High School, the district announced in a press release yesterday.
Becker has been with the district for two years and most recently served as the assistant principal at QHS. She replaces Marcus Pimpleton, who accepted a position in Yakima and announced his departure earlier this month.
Before coming to Quincy, Becker worked in the Tahoma School District as a high school principal intern, instructional coach, and a national board certified teacher for 11 years.
She attended Western Washington University and holds a master’s degree in education administration from the University of Washington Tacoma. She also earned her principal and program administrator certifications at UW.
In her role as assistant principal, Becker supported district efforts to create a more equitable and just education system built to serve the diverse interests of Quincy students, families and staff. She also provided professional learning support for all teachers during the transition to remote learning this spring.
Becker takes on the job on an interim basis. The district will begin the process to find a permanent candidate in January, said Superintendent John Boyd. Continuity is important for QHS, he said, adding that the district needs to carry on its momentum in improving student learning.
