May 2021 Posted in Briefs, Community, News, School

Silver Falls School District has announced the selection of  Melissa Linder as the new principal for Silver Crest School and district assistant director of teaching and learning.

Her first day will be July 1. Linder’s selection followed a process of community and staff input; a writing assessment; a case study analysis presentation; town hall sessions with community and staff members; and multiple interviews with senior district leadership. 

“We are so excited to have Melissa Linder join our team in SFSD,” said Superintendent Scott Drue. “She is an instructional leader of the highest order. Melissa has a proven leadership track record of adding value to those she serves.”

Linder served for 16 years in Seaside School District as a middle school language arts teacher, then as principal of Gearhart Elementary in Seaside. For the past seven years, she has worked as the director of curriculum and instruction for Astoria School District.

“I am thrilled to be able to join the Silver Crest students and staff and to be a part of a close-knit school community again,” Linder said. “I have missed being with students and can’t wait to contribute to the school and the district.”
