Brian Tovey is a very mellow, compassionate and loving man. In his free time he likes to spend his time with his family, and out travelling. He was in high school right here in Gig Harbor, at Peninsula High, His best memory of high school was Fishbowl of his senior year; they beat Gig Harbor 53-28 with Brian as quarterback.
He earned his bachelor's in history and his master of arts in teaching. Brian was a teacher first because he loved children and he loved to teach. After being a teacher for a while he wanted to do more to help students so he started his process to become a principal by getting his National Board Certification. He wanted to come to Henderson because he loves the idea of our school, what the mission is of the school and how it runs. Brian’s main goal for the year is to make sure everyone feels respected and supported. We’re all a family here at Henderson so Thank you Brian for helping us all come together and have a good year.
