Principal's Welcome

Principal Michael Stachon


I am very excited to be here at Roosevelt Middle School as the new
Principal.  I am looking forward to bringing my 19 years of professional
public educational experience to continue building RMS as an exemplary
school in the San Francisco Unified School District.

As a Bay Area native and a San Francisco resident for 15 years I adore
being a part of the San Francisco community. I started my career in
downtown San Jose as a 4th/5th grade teacher for seven years and then
teaching 4th grade in Mill Valley for six years.

I began the administration phase of my career as Assistant Principal in
Cupertino before coming to San Francisco. Most recently, I served two
years as the Assistant Principal at Herbert Hoover Middle School in our
district. At Hoover, I was instrumental in the implementation of a new
Special Education Program called SOAR ­ Success, Opportunity,
Achievement, and Resilience, and the roll out of the Response to
Intervention Framework.

My belief in fostering community and supporting family begins at home
where I spend a lot of time with my wife Ashley and our dog Reggie.
In our free time I enjoy eating our way through San Francisco or the Napa
Valley.  To work off those extra calories, I spend free weekends skiing in
Tahoe or golfing with friends.

I love what Roosevelt brings to our students and I am a big believer in
student centered learning.  With a beautifully renovated building,
technology integration in every classroom, a new Assistant Principal,                                                                                                                                
Mr. Krishna Kassenbaun,  our dedicated faculty and staff, I am certain our                                                                                                                                    students will continue to thrive and be proud to be RMS Trojans.
