Tim Shultz

Tim Shultz- Associate Principal (Students: Sophomores)

Greetings Kangs! I am excited to be here at LW! I grew up in Woodinville, WA and have been in education for 20 years. I was a teacher for 15 and have been in administration ever since. I earned my BA in History from Western Washington University, where I played football and then earned my Master in Teaching and my Administrative Certificate from Seattle University. I earned my National Board Certification in Social Studies in 2015. As a former coach and athlete, I love working with our athletic teams to build a positive culture for our school. I also love working with all out students to ensure their success in school and have a positive school experience.

My wife, Allison, is also an administer and I have three children, Hailey (WSU Grad—Go Cougs!), Cole and Ian (high school age). When not at Lake Washington, I am watching my boys, Cole and Ian participate in sporting events like swimming and water polo—their favorite sports.


Dana Greenburg

Dana Greenberg - Associate Principal (Students: Juniors)

Education is a second career for Dana Greenberg. After receiving her undergraduate degrees in Political Science and History from the University of California Santa Barbara and her master’s degree in Public Administration from University of Washington, Ms. Greenberg worked for the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). At GAO, Ms. Greenberg conducted investigations for the U.S. Congress on a wide range of subjects – from aviation infrastructure and finance to high level nuclear waste cleanup at Hanford- and her findings were reported via briefings and testimony to the Congress.

Education was always an area of interest for Ms. Greenberg and she decided to switch gears and teach students about their government. She received her master’s in teaching from Seattle University and taught high school history, government, and leadership at schools in Seattle and Issaquah. Returning to Seattle University, Ms. Greenberg earned her Educational Specialist in Educational Administration degree and arrived at the LWSD as an Associate Principal at Finn Hill Middle School before moving to her current home here at Lake Washington High School (go Kangs!).

Ms. Greenberg has a daughter at the Oberlin Conservatory & College and a daughter working on disaster management through AmeriCorps. She and her husband enjoy opportunities to travel and visit their family.
