Greetings! I look forward to coming to school every day to be part of the amazing Kamiakin community. My core values include the belief that all students can learn and that education must involve a holistic perspective of student needs. I value inquiry, critical thinking, and collaboration in instruction, and I am passionate about working with community partners and our diverse families and staff to close our achievement gaps. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns about student discipline, athletics, school safety, ASB activities, special education, and/or student intervention systems. I love serving kids to help them set and achieve goals, prepare for a successful high school experience, and promote an inclusive and safe student culture.

I am so excited to serve as an additional Associate Principal and join the Cougar Family. What drew me to Kamiakin Middle School was the diverse culture and community traditions. Middle school is such an important time in students’ lives as they establish their independence and develop their own beliefs. I am so honored to be a part of it as we partner with our families to help them navigate through the school system and grow their academic, social, and emotional strengths. Please introduce your families to me when you are on campus and reach out by phone or email so we can connect as well.
-Katie Mikel (Associate Principal, students L-Z)

I will strive to serve the students and families here and I hope to get to know every one of the students and families here. I believe that school is a excellent opportunity for students to learn to be a productive and helpful members of their community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to introduce yourself or with any questions or concerns.
