Dear Marina Village Families,
It is with enthusiasm and excitement that I introduce myself, Levi Cambridge, as the new principal of Marina Village Middle School. Marina has a history of excellence in serving students and the community and I am honored to be selected to this position. I also feel fortunate to be part of a community that is so dedicated to impacting the lives of students in such a positive way and I look forward to working with you in this most worthy endeavor.
By way of introduction, I have been working in education for 17 years. Before coming to Marina, I have taught at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. Most recently, I have been an assistant principal at Camerado Springs Middle School for five years. In each stage of my career I have experienced passionate teachers and effective staff that have been inspiring as they work with students. These experiences have continued to reinforce a guiding principle for me that a science teacher at Camerado put so succinctly, “It’s all about the kids.” Being student focused has been a touchstone for me in guiding my decisions and is a constant reminder to me of the importance of the work that we do. From what I have learned so far about Marina and the community, this philosophy is also shared and I am grateful to join you in your dedication. I am also thrilled to begin to experience the spirit of Ohana that fills the Marina school community.
We are excited about the changes that have happened here at Marina. Our construction project is almost finished and our new building is up and running with beautiful classrooms and resources. The PE courts are the last remaining piece of work along with the landscaping so we hope everyone will be patient as we put the final touches onto an amazing project.
Levi Cambridge, Principal
