Dr. Mike Brophy is Superintendent
of the West Valley School District in Yakima, where he has served since 2011.
Earlier in his career he worked in the Bethel District, the Eastmont District
in East Wenatchee and in Aberdeen. His personal mission is to maximize the
potential of all students. To achieve this, he is not only reaching out to
the school aged children in his district, but he is also reaching out to
students before they start school. Dr. Brophy established a training that
occurs four times a year for those who operate daycares or preschools to
learn more about how to prepare kids for entering the school system.
