    Hello Roadrunner Families!  My name is Natalie Waddell and I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at this amazing school.   Before becoming an administrator, I was a classroom teacher for 13 years and a teacher on special assignment for four years.  Previously, I was a Title One/Categorical Administrator for our district and an AP at BES, CHES, and VHES. In my current position, I will share my time between TTES and RES. I am married to a wonderful man named Darren. We have two children. Miles and Burklee, both of whom were educated through the TVUSD school system.  In my spare time, I enjoy photography and spending time with my family.  I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Principal Dignan and Assistant Principal Waddell welcome families to Rancho.
