• Hello Stevens Families~

    I am Jamie Stotler, and I am so excited to be returning to Stevens at the Principal!  Some of you may remember me as Ms. Dunn, Assistant Principal at Stevens, a few years ago.  I am so honored to be able to return this year to work with the amazing staff, students, and families of Stevens. I look forward to the upcoming school year, even though it will come with many obstacles and changes due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.  I

    This is my 21st year in education, and my 4th year with the Aberdeen School District.  I spent 15 years as a classroom teacher in grades 3-5 in the Hoquiam School District.  I was priviledged to be the first Dean of Students at Central Elementary School in Hoquiam.  I served in that role for 3 years, and then made the big leap adn crossed Myrtle Street to join the Aberdeen School District in 2017.  In my time at Aberdeen, I have been the Assistant Principal at Stevens, and most recently the building Principal at Robert Gray for two years.  

    I love learning, which is a good thing because I go to school everyday!  I graduted from Grays Harbor College with an AA degree in 1998, and then Washington State Univeristy University in 2000 with a Bachelors of Science in Education.  At WSU, I also earned a minor in Elementary Education.  I later earned a Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning from the University of New England and a second Masters in Administration from Western Governors University.

    I recently got married to my best friend and together we have three children.  My husband, Damon, is a mechanic with the Hoquiam-Aberdeen Transportation CO-Op.  My son Walker just finished his post-secondary education at Perry Technical Institute in Yakima, and is now employed full-time in the HVAC industry.  ReyLynn, my daughter, will be starting her seond year at Eastern Washington University (virtually of course!) and is studying to be a nurse.  Noah is a 5th grader in the school district.  So, you can see, my family are very much "Harborites" and devoted to education! 

    So, what do I like to do in my spare time?  Well....in the spring and summer, you will find me DRAG RACING!  This is shocking to many but it is my all-time favorite thing to do!!  I hope that there is a time this spring that I can bring my race car to school for the kids to see.  Since I cannot drag race all the time, I am also an avid runner.  I try to run between 130-150 miles each month.  I truly enjoy running the various half marathon events around the Pacific Northwest.  

    I am dedicated to the students and families of Stevens.  I enjoy visiting classrooms and spending time with the kids.  I try to be in the cafeteria and on the playgrounds, so that I can enjoy the kids doing what they like to od.  Although, I am not very "sportsy", so I am not so good at their games!  I truly enjoy sitting with kids at lunch, and love to have students as teh "Principal for the Day".

    I am excited to meet you, and be YOUR Principal at Stevens.  Please reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have.  I am available by phone at 360-538-2150 or jstotler@asd5.org
