Tina Croes- Principal
I grew up on the Northern California coast in Redwood Country surrounded by extended family and friends. I attended elementary and junior high and graduated from Eureka High School in my hometown of Eureka. As a young adult, I relocated to Redding in the fall of 1991.
Education and Professional Experience
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from Chico State University in 1996 and completed the Teacher Credential Program at Simpson University in 1998. I have been with the Enterprise Elementary School District both as a teacher and as an administrator since then. I spent ten years teaching at Mistletoe School, while I completed my Masters of Arts in Education and the Administration Program at Simpson University. Additionally, I taught and helped to build the middle school program for six years at Boulder Creek School before I began serving our district and school as an administrator. On a personal note, I was a proud Boulder Creek parent for nine years while my two boys completed their elementary school education.
My family includes my understanding and supportive husband, Scott. He is an amazing and devoted physiology instructor at Shasta College. I have two wonderful, grown sons, Garrett and Brett. However, I am not completely an empty nester, as I have three energetic, happy corgis who love to occupy my time at home. When we have the time, we like to take our dogs on the road and find adventures in the outdoors.
Ryan Miller- Assistant Principal
I was born and raised in the small farming community of Colusa, Ca. During my childhood I enjoyed the outdoors very much. Fishing, hunting, and sports were the essentials for my friends and I. My Mom and Dad still live in Colusa, where my brother and his family also reside. It always brings back fond memories when we visit my family in my hometown.
I graduated from Colusa High school in 2005. From their I went to College of the Redwoods to play basketball for a year, before ending up at Simpson University where I would finish off my Bachelors of Arts in History in 2010. Upon completion of my degree I immediately enrolled in the teacher credentialing program where I received my preliminary teaching credential. Later at Simpson, I would pursue my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership with a preliminary Administrative Services credential.
Once I completed my teacher credentialing I was hired as a 7th grade history and science teacher at Boulder Creek School. I taught for four years before assuming the role of Assistant Principal in 2014.
I am married to my wonderful wife Michelle, who also teaches in the Enterprise Elementary School District. In 2016 we welcomed our beautiful son Benjamin James Miller. We love to be outdoors and hike around Northern California. We live in such a wonderful place that exploration of the natural world here is a big part of our life. When I'm not at school or hiking with my family I also enjoy hunting, fly-fishing, and biking.
Nancy Walker- Assistant Principal
I have lived my entire life in Redding. My mother was a teacher in the Enterprise Elementary School District, and 25 years ago I followed in her footsteps. My children and I started Kindergarten in the same classroom 23 years apart from each other. Enterprise Elementary School District is in my blood!
After graduating high school I attended Shasta College for two years and then moved onto Chico State University, where my mother and grandfather also attended. I graduated from Chico State with a bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies and Master's degree in Educational Leadership.
I began my teaching career at Rother Elementary School, where I have spent most of the last 25 years. I have served students in many ways including as teacher, site literacy coach, school board member, teacher instructor and English language learner coordinator. I began my administrative career in 2015 as an Assistant Principal at Boulder Creek School. I love the feeling of family that defines the Boulder Creek way!
