Principal's Letter

August 2019

Hello Mountlake Terrace Elementary Community,

I am SO excited to be joining you here for the 2019-2020 school year! This is a community that has always held a special place in my heart and a community that I have much respect for. To join a school where I can team with staff and families to support our learners; a community that is equity minded and inclusive; a school where each child is believed in; and a place where the whole child is nurtured; leaves me feeling thrilled to be here!

For those that have yet to meet me here are a few things for you to know:

  • I am a mother of 5 (a blended family)- Isaac is 19, Bria is 18, Kellyn is 11, Iyla is 9 and DJ is due to be born on September 25th
  • I will be taking maternity leave from September 20th through January 5th (Stephanie Paolone will be here during my leave as the interim principal)
  • I am a vocalist, I have sang in many choirs throughout my life and am currently a member of the Mill Creek Chorale
  • I am hoping to take up running again once I give birth to DJ, running is something I have loved doing in the past
  • My husband Jeremy and I are BIG sports enthusiasts, if the sport exists we probably watch it- we are hoping to attend the Final Four (college basketball) this Spring Break
  • I LOVE shoes
  • I enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures
  • I am an equity minded leader who believes ALL children are capable of achievement
  • I am excited to team not only with the other educators in the building but also with families, community and students
  • I am always growing and learning- I am excited to learn from all of you

My door is always open to talk, please don’t hesitate to stop by or make an appointment to meet with me
