Event Description:
Please join the Renton Chamber of Commerce in welcoming new teachers to the Renton community.  
The Chamber is pleased to announce Chris Reykdal, State Superintendent of Public Instruction as our keynote speaker for the 2017 New Teacher's Breakfast.  

Chris Reykdal, the youngest of eight children, was born and raised in Snohomish. He graduated summa cum laude from Washington State University with a bachelor’s degree in social studies and earned a master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. He coached both youth and adult soccer for several years, volunteered as a local city planning commissioner and served as a trustee for the College Spark Washington Foundation for six years.

His professional career has been devoted to public education. Chris has worked as a high school history teacher, local school board member, state legislator, and budget and education policy executive for our state’s community and technical college system.

In November 2016, Chris was elected as Washington’s 16th state superintendent. His goals are to build broad coalitions that will close the opportunity gaps for some students, expand technical education opportunities and decrease our reliance on standardized tests that label our students.

Chris and his wife, Kim, live in historic Tumwater with their two children, Carter and Kennedy.
