Sheila Walker, Co-Chair

I am honored to be serving on the Board of TRCS. Both of my children, Lucy and Liam, graduated from TRCS. Our family will be forever grateful for the education our children received at this incredible school, with it's strong leadership and gifted faculty. As a teacher myself, and the Head of a small private school, I am dedicated to the belief that each child learns in their own way and it is a wonderful benefit to any community to have different educational opportunities. I am grateful to once again be a part of this nurturing, creative and passionate community.


Michelle Engblom-Deglmann, Co-Chair

Michelle has been part of the TRCS board since her daughter started school there in 2022. She serves as a professor of marriage and family counseling at a local university where she's been teaching for 10 years. She maintains a counseling private practice in the area serving couples and individuals in addition to supervising new counselors and interns. Michelle's experience as both an educator and a learner fuels her desire to support nurturing learning environments for both teachers and students alike in regards to learning styles, creativity and expression, safety and security, and cultural responsiveness.


Paul Gracianette, Treasurer

Paul is a former student of TRCS from 2002-2008. He later volunteered as our Senior Counselor at Outdoor School for several years before he was offered employment at TRCS as a Paraeducator. Paul left in 2017 when he was deployed with the U.S. Army to support NATO. Recently back from his second deployment, Paul owns an IT company in Salem where he lives with his partner, Emma, and his dog, Utah. He is excited to stay involved after more than two decades with TRCS.


Johanna Bremont, Secretary

Johanna was raised in West Linn and has thoroughly enjoyed being back in this wonderful community for the last six years. She taught at TRCS from 2017-2022 and hasn’t been able to stay away since! In the past year, she has served as an Outdoor School staff member and a substitute teacher, and she is elated to begin supporting the sensational TRCS students, families, and staff in a new way as a board member. After fifteen years in the classroom, Johanna now works as an enrollment specialist for a virtual public school and is also a small business owner.


Paromita Mukherjee

It’s my pleasure to serve on the TRCS board. My children had the privilege to experience the incredible community that is TRCS and I am grateful to the teachers and staff who made it possible. I am excited to advocate for all students so they have the same opportunities as my children did. I am committed to working with my fellow board members, teachers and administrators to help students reach their full potential. In my leisure time I enjoy going on long walks and practicing yoga. I am passionate about volunteering and have done so in various ways over the years. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.

Katherine loves attending IP Night each year and connecting with the current students as well as her past teachers and classmates.
