Dr. Erin Duez has been hired as the next assistant principal at Anacortes High School and principal at Cap Sante High School. Duez has more than 17 years of experience in K-12 education, serving in other districts as assistant principal, AVID site co-coordinator, assessment coordinator, instructional coach, and math, chemistry, and biology teacher. 

“Dr. Duez was selected for her broad range of experience, including a focus on student achievement and high expectations, and a deep understanding of instructional practices,” said Superintendent Justin Irish. “I’m excited about her background in math and science, and her leadership qualities overall.”

The assistant principal is responsible for supporting the principal in day-to-day operations at the high school, as well as helping to manage school improvement efforts, academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of all students. As Cap Sante principal, Duez will oversee the district’s alternative high school program, and provide support to its staff and students. 

Most recently, Duez has been teaching biology and AP chemistry in California. She has also served with the Mount Vernon school district as a math teacher and assistant principal. She will be relocating back to Anacortes this summer with her family, while her husband completes his naval career.  

“I am excited to return home to Anacortes,” said Duez. “I believe strongly in setting high expectations for all students, and I look forward to supporting the staff, students, and families at both AHS and Cap Sante.” 

Duez will join incoming AHS principal Daniel Williams. She replaces outgoing assistant principal/ interim principal Kecia Fox who has accepted a position with the Mount Vernon School District, and outgoing Cap Sante principal Ryan Pike, who has accepted a position with the Stanwood-Camano School District. Duez will join the Anacortes School District on July 1.
