District Home

Michele Cain Joins Grant Staff

Greetings, Grant TK-8 Family!
First of all, please allow me to share what an incredible honor it is to have the opportunity to serve this amazing community of learners, educators, and caregivers as the new principal of Grant TK-8!
I believe that the future is a place we create. My passion is leading, establishing, and developing relevant, rigorous, student-centered learning experiences that will prepare today’s learners to become the best version of themselves and successfully compete in the workforce of tomorrow.  I join Grant TK-8 with nine years of administrative experience both as a middle school and TK-8 assistant principal as well as a district level professional development coordinator.  Most recently, I served as Assistant Principal at Design39Campus in the Poway Unified School District. Prior to that, I also served as Assistant Principal at Roosevelt Middle School in the Vista Unified School District. 
Though I have happily called San Diego home for the past five years, I am originally from Denver, Colorado and spent my high school years in central New Jersey as well. An avid beach lover, I also enjoy biking, reading, crafting, skiing, musical theater, and spending time with my two teenage sons, husband, three cats, and two dogs.
Please look forward for future messages from me as the official start date of the 2020-2021 school year grows closer. Communication is very important to me, and I am currently working to develop some systems and structures that will help us stay connected in the 2020-2021 school year, including a weekly update message and weekly evening Zoom Principal Chats for at least the first few months of school. Please stay posted for those updates, and until then, please stay well and enjoy a beautiful and restful summer!
