My name is Ray Houser and I’m extremely excited and truly honored to be leading the staff of Mountain View Arts & Technology High School. As your principal, I am committed to ensuring that student interests and needs help shape instruction and peak student’s excitement in their learning. I am passionate about my mission as principal and I will make decisions that best support students in reaching their educational goals. I look forward to working with you to provide the best educational program for our students.
I believe that great schools are the result of great teachers. My primary objective will be to ensure that every student is receiving high-quality instruction in every classroom from every teacher, in order to prepare them for college and/or career. In order to achieve this, I will be providing teachers with valuable feedback on their instruction, access to professional development, and reaching out to parents for support with academic and behavioral concerns when they arise. Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, and staff.
My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past three decades. Before joining Mountain View Arts & Technology High School I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles; including teacher, counselor, principal and district administrator. In each of my roles, I have sought to promote the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional opportunities and supports possible.
My greatest initiative will be to provide leadership that will continue to offer differentiated learning opportunities for each student, designed to meet the needs of each student, and to engage, inspire and challenge each student.
Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to our wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and your students.
