  • Tigard, Oregon – Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) Director of Secondary Amber Fields announced today that Lisa Dailey will be the new principal at Hazelbrook Middle School. Dailey steps into the role on July 1, 2022, with the departure of current Principal Tim Gross who will move into a Student Services position within the District office. 

    “As a former student at Hazelbrook Middle School, Lisa has a personal connection and passion to serve the Hazelbrook community,” said Director Fields. “During the interview process, staff, students and parents highlighted their appreciation for her instructional knowledge, behavior systems knowledge, and understanding the tremendous mental and emotional health needs for students post-pandemic. Lisa brings an equity lens to all parts of her work, especially using data to make decisions that includes feedback from her students, staff and community. My thanks to Principal Gross for his leadership over the years. We look forward to his continued service to students in his new role.”

At TTSD, Dailey has contributed to the creation of the District’s College & Career programming, served as an interim associate principal at Tualatin High School, and is currently in her third year as associate principal at Tigard High School.

    “It is such an honor to be returning to Hazelbrook as the new Principal,” said Dailey. “As a former Hazelbrook student myself, I’m looking forward to rejoining the community to serve alongside a dedicated group of educators to continue to meet the needs of every student. While I will miss the Tigard High community immensely, I am excited for this new adventure.”

    Dailey earned her BS in Mathematics and Continuing Administrator Licensure from Portland State University. She received her MA in Teaching from Pacific University and plans to complete her Doctorate in Educational Leadership from George Fox University in 2025.
