Kathleen Cuevas - Principal
Hello, my name is Kathleen Cuevas and I am honored to serve as the Principal at E. M. Pease MS. I know with collaboration, communication, and a belief in the staff and students, we will accomplish great things! This is the start of my 13th year in education of which 12 have been in Northside. I have served the Northside community as a teacher, department coordinator, Special Education Area Coordinator, Special Education Assistant Director for Middle School, Academic Dean, and now Principal. I hold a Bachelor and Master's degree in Human Resource Management respectively from Hawaii Pacific and Webster Universities. I strongly believe that by proficiently executing the basics and expanding on them as new skills and knowledge are obtained, we will raise the level of preparedness for students entering this diverse world. I am supported by my husband of 25 years, two daughters that graduated from Northside schools, my grandson and family. Education is the family business and I'm proud to carry on the tradition.
