Rina Geoghagan

Geoghagan, Rina


I am a Seattle native, born on Capitol Hill and raised in Wallingford. As a child, I always wanted to become a teacher like my grandmother. She was a middle school Spanish teacher in Detroit, Michigan for over 30 years. I loved hearing her stories and always knew that being a teacher was my destiny.

I attended The Evergreen State College and received a BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies. After graduating from college, I spent time living and traveling in South America.

After returning to the United States, I decided to return to Evergreen where I earned a Master’s in Teaching. I began teaching elementary school in 2001 in the Shoreline School District. I spent eight years teaching grades three through six in both Highly Capable and regular education classrooms.

I was also a literacy coach and mentor teacher which has helped me to support both new and experienced teachers. In addition to my experience in elementary school, I taught Language Arts and Social Studies at Whitman Middle School in the Seattle School District. My broad classroom experiences provided me with a strong foundation in instruction and differentiation.

I have been the Decatur principal since the building reopened in 2018. Previously, I served as the founding principal of Cascadia Elementary School when it was located in the Lincoln High School building. Leading Cascadia was an incredible experience that helped prepare me for my position as the principal at Decatur Elementary School.

As a parent and principal in Seattle Public Schools, I understand what makes a school successful and I am excited to be opening Decatur Elementary School and working with our amazing teachers and families to make the school a community for everyone.

Go Gators!
