The St. Helens School District is pleased to announce that Allyson Dubuque will be the new principal at McBride Elementary and will begin her role on August 1, 2023.
Allyson comes to the district with many years of experience in education. Starting in 1999, Allyson taught some of our youngest learners as a 1st-grade teacher in San Jose, California, before returning to Oregon to be closer to family. She then continued teaching 4th and 5th graders at Rock Creek Elementary, and it was in these elementary classrooms that her passion for building strong relationships with the community and thoughtful instructional approaches sparked. In 2015, Allyson moved into school administration, where she served as an Assistant Principal in the Beaverton School District, both at Beaverton High School and also at Five Oaks Middle School.
Allyson has served on and led multiple committees centering around strong instructional practices, coordinated elementary and middle-level summer programming, and even volunteered time to support high school swimming as a deck referee.
Outside of school, Allyson is a parent of two amazing teenagers and a beloved dog, the wife of an engineer, and daughter to family members who still reside in Pendleton, Oregon. She loves spending time at the nearest swimming pool, helping her youngest with all things related to horses, running, and being with those she cares about the most.
When asked about her new role in the St. Helens School District, Allyson stated, “I am very excited to get to work at McBride Elementary and join this great community!”
Please join us in congratulating Allyson Dubuque on her new role as the principal at McBride Elementary.
