Co-Principal Artonya Gemmill

K-12  |  Principal

Hello, my name is Artonya Gemmill and I am the new Co-Principal for the Edge Program. I started my career in education as an instructional assistant with the San Mateo-Foster City School District prior to becoming an elementary school full-inclusion teacher. As a full-inclusion teacher, I taught grades K-2. After that, I continued my educational journey at San Francisco State University where I received my master’s degree in special education.

After eight years of service in the education field in Northern California and one year of service in the McMinnville School District, I joined the SKPS team in 2007 as a high school special education teacher. Starting in 2008, I served as an assistant principal at West Salem and South Salem high schools. In 2013, I began my role as the principal of Brush College Elementary school and most recently, served as principal at Clear Lake Elementary School.

I view a collaborative school environment as an important part of building successful learners. I believe having strong relationships between students, staff and parents will foster that success.­

K-12  |  Principal

Hello, my name is Christine Bowlby and I am the new Co-Principal for the EDGE Program. I have worked in Salem Keizer for more than 19 years of experience,  most recently serving as principal at Keizer Elementary. I started with SKPS in 2001 as a kindergarten and first-grade teacher at Fruitland Elementary before transitioning to Swegle Elementary where I taught fourth-grade before becoming an instructional coach at the school.

While teaching, I earned a master’s degree in education with endorsements in both reading and ESOL. In 2012, I accepted my first principal assignment at Washington Elementary where I had the privilege of serving for five years before moving to Keizer Elementary in 2017.

I am very excited to embark on this new adventure and looks forward to working with and supporting students and families as they pursue this educational opportunity.
