Principal, Mr. Ken Gilbert

gilbert_kenI was born in Laconia, New Hampshire where I lived for the first eight years of my life. After that I moved to Oregon and went to a few schools in the Eugene/Springfield area before my family settled in Halsey. I graduated from Central Linn High School in 1989 and decided I was tired of school. I took a few classes at Lane Community College before deciding two years later what I really wanted to do. I went into the field of education and loved it. I transferred to O.S.U where I received by B.S. in Liberal Studies. After that, I went to Willamette University where I received my Masters in Teaching degree. I did my student teaching at Memorial for one year with Bill Kinkley in a 7th grade math class. At the end of the year, I applied for and received a classified position helping out the summer school program. During the program I applied for and received a teaching position with MMS. The first three years here I taught blocks of math and science to eighth graders. For the last six years I taught mainly math to 7th and 8th graders. In 2006 I finished my classes to receive my Administrators Certificate from the University of Oregon.

I have a wife named Tami and two boys named Kyle and Kaleb. I also have an old mutt named T-Bone and a younger one named Missy along with two cats named Rose and Boston. I enjoy spending time with my family riding quads, throwing horseshoes in tournaments, and camping. I’m a Beaver Believer along with rooting for the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and Miami Dolphins.


Assistant Principal,  Ms. Stevie Drake

Stevie Drake

I am a Pacific Northwesterner through and through. I was born and raised in Washington State, and received my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Teaching through Western Washington University. I decided pretty quickly that, while I definitely wanted to work in education, counseling fit me better than teaching, so when I moved to Oregon almost 15 years ago, I attended Oregon State University (go Beavs!), where I received my Master’s in School Counseling. I’ve worked as a school counselor for a decade, and then I decided to pursue my Administrative Certification through Portland State University. I’ve been lucky to transition from counselor to Dean of Behavior and now to Assistant Principal in my last couple of years at Memorial. I’m very excited for what this new role will bring!

I love spending time with my daughter Ruby; some of our favorite places to go are the beach, out in the woods hiking, or just hanging out reading, which we both love to do. We have an old cat named Tupelo, and we love spending time with our family and friends. I am an unashamed University of Washington football fan, which makes for some fun rivalries with my colleagues and students during football season.
