Ms. Wicker, CFT Principal
  • Greetings Charles F. Tigard Families and Caregivers! 

    I am honored and humbled to serve as the Principal of Charles F. Tigard Elementary School. We are a diverse community of learners dedicated to the academic, social and emotional success of every student. We are committed to continuous improvement through cycles of inquiry in which we implement change ideas and monitor our progress. 

    In our work together, we are guided by our Mission and Vision:

    Mission (Who we are)

    We believe that every student can achieve at a high level and that We are responsible for that.

    Vision (What we do)

    Every student will read at benchmark, master grade level standards and feel safe, valued and connected to CFT.

    As we strive to achieve the CF Tigard vision, I am excited to learn from our students, caregivers and staff, and to share my enthusiasm for and commitment to creating a world-class learning environment for every learner who comes through our doors. I became an educator because I believe each student can and deserves to experience joy, pride and belonging in school.  I am eager to hear from you and your children about their needs and hopes for their time at CFT and beyond.
