Tigard, Oregon – Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) Director of Secondary Amber Fields announced today that Susan Kosmala will be the new principal at Twality Middle School. Kosmala steps into the role on July 1, 2022, with the departure of current Principal Andrew Kearl who was named the new principal at Beaverton High School. 

“We are so excited to welcome Susan to the Twality family,” said Director Fields. “Her tenure as a Middle School Principal, instructional knowledge as well as deep value and proven fight for equitable and inclusive practices, are just a few of the reasons families, students and staff selected her to be the next Twality Principal. Susan believes in being visible and ensuring staff, families and students feel seen, valued and heard. Further, she knows the social and emotional needs of middle school students post-pandemic and is passionate about serving at this level.”

Kosmala has served in education with Portland Public Schools (PPS) for 18 years, most recently as principal at Jackson Middle School for the past three years. Prior to PPS, she served in the Office of Educational Improvement and Innovation with the Oregon Department of Education. Susan has also been a teacher in the Salem-Keizer School District, Freeport Public Schools, Lansing School District, and Pittsburgh Public Schools. 

“I am very excited to join TTSD,” said Kosmala. “I have long respected the cutting-edge work the district is known for. I am a data-driven leader and prioritize school climate, specifically students’ sense of belonging and voice. These are values that lead TTSD’s work and I look forward to lending my experience and talents to further this work.”

Kosmala earned her BA in Education from Michigan State University and a BM in Music Education & Applied Clarinet from the University of Hartford. She earned her MEd from Michigan State, and her Professional Administrator Licensure and Professional Teaching Licensure from the University of Portland.
