Shuckerow named new Archer Glen Elementary principal
The Sherwood School District has selected Patrick Shuckerow, a former district teacher and administrator, as Archer Glen Elementary School's new principal.
He will officially take over duties July 1, filling the position vacated by Tim Smith who will retire at the end of this school year.
Shuckerow has served three years as principal of Forest Hills Elementary in Lake Oswego. Prior to that, he served in various positions throughout the Sherwood School District for 11 years including teaching third grade, serving as an instructional coach and as a district-level administrator.
During the hiring process, Shuckerow expressed a strong desire to return to the Sherwood School District, whose first teaching job was in Sherwood, according to district officials.
"Sherwood is where I find a sense of community and belonging. It is a place of incredible teachers and staff, capable leadership, and thoughtful community," said Shuckerow in a district news release. "In particular, I am honored to join the Archer Glen community. I look forward to learning more about all the wonderful work Archer Glen is doing and meeting the incredible students, staff, and community that make this such a special place."
He has been married to Kathy Shuckerow, choir director at Sherwood High and Sherwood middle schools, for 14 years. They are the parents of three children.
"As a district, we always want to ensure that we find the right person for each position we fill, who will bring their expertise, skills, and professionalism to the role, while embracing the values of our district," said Superintendent Heather Cordie. "It is always exciting to be able to bring a strong educator and leader such as Mr. Shuckerow back to our district, knowing the enthusiasm and commitment he already has displayed to the students, staff, and families of this community in his previous roles. We are honored to welcome him back to the Sherwood School District community."
