Welcome to 2022-2023 BAEOP
General Meeting Nov 17 on Teams
Welcoming speaker Drew O'Connell, Director of Student Life
My name is Drew O’Connell and I have been in the field of education for 17 years. I have spent the last 10 years as a high school principal, and as an assistant principal at the high school and middle school level in the Seattle Public Schools. I started my career as an instructional assistant and then became a high school science teacher and academic intervention specialist before becoming an administrator.
In the position of Director of Student Life, I serve as an advocate with and for students to center and amplify their voices around any issue or concern they want to bring forward. I also help them navigate our systems especially if/when they confront challenges or barriers with our district. In some cases, I also serve the same purpose with our families. My position allows me to lead and be part of numerous teams at the district and school level while also providing direct service to students and families. I am excited and proud to be a part of the Bellevue School District and work in partnership with others to achieve our goals.
