New associate principal to join staff at Sakai Intermediate School

Bainbridge Island School District has announced the selection of Amii Pratt as the new associate principal at Sonoji Sakai Intermediate School.

“Amii has excelled in a number of instructional and leadership roles in the district, and she is highly regarded by those who have worked with her,” said District Superintendent Faith Chapel.

Her first day as associate principal at Sakai is July 1.

District officials said the job is a half-time administrative position that was eliminated in 2011 but is being reinstated due to increased enrollment and changes in administrative roles and responsibilities.

Pratt has 11 years of educational experience.

She taught first and second grades at Ordway and Captain Charles Wilkes elementary schools on Bainbridge and second grade at Peter S. Ogden Elementary School in the Vancouver School District. She also served as a K-5 English language learner coordinator in Vancouver for two years.

Currently, Pratt is a K-5 English language arts teacher on special assignment and is a principal intern at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary School. She designed and led professional development sessions and co-facilitated the Teacher Evaluation Committee for the Bainbridge district.

Pratt graduated in 2001 from Oregon State University with a bachelor of science degree, then received her master of arts degree in teaching at OSU in 2002.

In 2008 she achieved her National Board Certification, a rigorous and advanced teaching credential. This year, she received her Initial Principal and Program Administrator Certificate from the University of Washington’s Danforth Educational Leadership Program.
