John Page

 In service as the Director of Career and Technical Education for Tacoma Public Schools, John Page has contributed to the development and implementation of innovative programs to ensure ALL students graduate with one or more industry recognized certifications.  

John found success as a student in Career and Technical Education at Fort Vancouver High School in Vancouver, Washington, and continued his education as a first-generation college going student at Washington State University; where he achieved a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Agriculture Education, eventually leading to a portfolio of school administration certificates for instructional leadership.  

21 years of service as a teacher in public schools, prior to entering service in school administration, provides the foundation of John’s drive for student results. Pushing value into kids, regardless of their situation is a core leadership value for empowering students and staff to break through barriers for student achievement.
