Where did you grow up?

Berkeley, CA

Why did you choose to become a teacher/work with children?
I have always loved working with children. I love engaging their imaginations, supporting their needs, and laughing together. When I was in graduate skill, I had an internship in an elementary school and I loved it!

Give Big campaign logo


Wondering what’s next for our playground? 

We’ve just about come to the end of our Department of Neighborhoods' $25,000 matching funds grant. From that grant we now have a concept masterplan, a construction estimate and a preliminary strategy for Phase 1 construction. 


What does this mean? 

The masterplan is our collective dream, the estimate is what the dream costs, and Phase 1 is the reality of what we can likely raise and build by September 2018. 


What's next? 

We go to work applying for grants and finding donors. The remaining amount will come from fundraising. 

Grant applications are in the works and our first fundraising effort is May 10th with Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG. This is a one-day online giving event...

Kids with Ditty Bag goods

Congratulations to all our Jaguars on a successful Ditty Bag Drive! The final count was performed last week and we had a total of 11 paper boxes spilling over with more than 2,100 items!


It will all be picked up this week and transported to Queen Anne Food Bank for distribution to our community members in need.
 
There was an friendly competition set up between grades to collect the most items. The 2nd and 3rd graders led the pack and will be rewarded with cupcakes and an extra recess. 

A huge thank you to our Student Council for leading this project, as well as Arti Ameer, Janet Schooler, and Thomas Rose for providing inspiration, guidance, and support.
And another HUGE thank you to our families for making these donations. By teachi...
