Throughout her school administrative career , Paula Quinn has served as an active member of the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP). In 2008 she was hired as the Director of Elementary Programs and Professional Development, and in this role she effectively organized all professional learning opportunities–including conferences, workshops and district level trainings. When AWSP was asked to develop a model for principal and assistant principal evaluation, Paula took on the challenge and became one of the original authors on this work.  Her tenure with AWSP enabled her to collaborate closely with districts of all sizes and gain a unique perspective on how to diversify and customize plans to fit specific needs, a perspective that was particularly helpful when implementing the Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program (TPEP).

Paula is a proud graduate of WSU, with a degree in Speech and Language Pathology and Elementary Education.  She received her master’s degree and principal credentials from Central Washington University.

Paula’s previous educational roles include: Teacher, Language Therapist, Elementary Principal, President and Vice President of the Elementary Principals Association of Washington (ESPAW), (not concurrently), and Director of Federal Programs: Title I, VI; Bilingual, LAP, Highly Capable Programs.
