Not only has Ms. Rabb-Patterson left a lasting impact at Bridgeway Island but her strong leadership is felt throughout the WUSD community as her reputation for serving in the best interests of students and families is second to none. It is with great excitement that we share the announcement of this new role for Ms. Rabb-Patterson as she begins a new chapter in her professional journey. We look forward to working with her to increase our capacity for reaching the needs of all students in WUSD.
