Staff spotlight.JPG

Mr. Webb was born in and raised all the way in Illinois! Although he grew up in Illinois, he took a leap of faith and moved to California for college. Afterwards, he continued his California lifestyle and taught for three years!

Following those three years, he moved to the Portland Area and landed right here at BHS! Within the school, Mr. Webb teaches Animation, Drafting Design 1 & 2, Programming 1 & 2, Engineering 1 & 2 and Web Design. He not only teaches Animation, but one activity he enjoys is watching animated movies!

One goal he has for this year is to try something new. Not going to spill it all but he is planning on investing on certain aspects within classes and seeing the growth they endure throughout the year. One thing he would like to say to the student body is to get involved. Getting involved in productions, clubs, activities, sports etc. will create and better community and a more united school!

If you see Mr. Webb in the hallways, make sure to say, “Hi!”👋😁

Ryan is a senior here at BHS. Ryan is one of five siblings, two of which attended BHS. He lived in California for seven years, but likes Oregon better because of its climate, forestry, and overall natural beauty.

Outside of school, Ryan takes care of his nice, Keliani, watches crime and drama movies, and pursues his passion for photography, which has been his hobby for seven years now. He enjoys taking all kinds of photos, whether it be nature, portraits, or city landscapes.

After high school, he plans on majoring in photography at PCC. Ryan loves Beaverton High School because he feels that you can interact with people no matter what kind of person you are. You can always find someone to interact with. His favorite class so far is Photography 2; he likes that it expands the horizons and opens up talents and interests you didn’t know you had. Ryan is most looking forward to graduating and experiencing the future and opportunities it holds. When you pass Ryan in the halls, make sure to give him a fist bump! #ourBHSstory

Natalie is currently attending Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ, majoring in Justice Studies and minoring in Psychology. She is currently a part-time barista at her school, as well as working with Maricopa County Superior court Guardianship program.

When asked for advice to all BHS students, Natalie says, “Sounds cheesy but work hard for good grades because that means more money scholarships-wise, which means less debt!”

Hey Beavs, meet Freshman Mar Ubiergo. Mar is an only child; however, she lives next door to her best friend that she considers a sibling because they have known each other since they were one year old. She says she loves the community here at BHS. She came from a very tight-knit middle school of just 40 students. But she says coming to the bigger campus at Beaverton, she hasn’t lost that sense of community. Mar also loves the enthusiasm in the school. “People always seem to be happy and excited to be on school grounds.”

Mar’s favorite class this year is Social Studies with Mr. Running. She says that he has made learning about politics very fun and interesting. After high school, she is considering Health Sciences such as being a neurosurgeon or possibly dermatology.

Outside of school, Mar plays competitive soccer and loves traveling around the world and seeing new places. She says her dad is from Spain, so they love to visit his side of the family at least once a year. And lastly, Mar says that she is looking forward to, “Making the most of my four years in high school!”
