I spend most of my free time trying to keep up with two high-energy young boys.  I’m an avid sports fan and I have just enough construction knowledge to give me the confidence to start lots of home projects (the key word here being “start”).  I love spending my day with kids and working with other passionate disciples of the Lord at a Christ-inspired school.

ECS has been my true home since 1998. My wife and college-aged step-kids have also been a part of the ECS family since the kids were in preschool. I genuinely feel that God’s purpose for my life is to invest in others, particularly young people.  I feel the most joy and fulfillment when I am serving Him in this way. Besides working at ECS, I enjoy coaching football and am the head HS coach at Bellevue Christian School. I also enjoy exercising, riding motorcycles and ATVs, and love vacationing in the sun.

I am a lifelong Seattle native, currently living in Sammamish with my wife Sheena. Our two daughters attended ECS from Preschool – 8th grade, and Sheena worked here for 13 years.  After spending 25+ years at various executive positions in the grocery & food industry, God orchestrated events that brought me to volunteer and eventually work at ECS.  Along with managing the finances and technology for the school, I also enjoy teaching God’s financial principles to our middle school students. When away from the school I enjoy spending time with my family, fly-fishing (well, any kind of fishing is great!), hiking, classic cars, and spending time with my four legged friends.

My husband, two daughters, and I moved from California to Seattle to plant Lighthouse Christian Church in Bellevue. Over the years, God has grown our hearts for our community and the world. I enjoy serving in worship and missions at church and spending time with family and friends.

The best part of my job is meeting wonderful families who deeply love their children and watching new families become a part of the fabric of our school.  My prayer is that God would use ECS to draw families closer to Him and to raise up young people who know, love and serve Jesus.

After spending 20 years in the corporate world as a retail and HR professional, I made a career change to follow my passion and become a teacher. I began my career teaching Kindergarteners 5 years ago at a private school in Bellevue. While I really enjoyed teaching in Bellevue, I really wanted to teach in a Christian school because I believe our most important mission is to raise Christian children. I’m so glad to finally have this opportunity at ECS!  When I’m not spending time in the classroom, I enjoy taking long walks, attending sporting events (especially my children’s basketball and football games), shopping, and spending time with my 2 children, husband, and Lhasa Apso Sport.

I am excited and honored to serve on the ECS team! My love for teaching little ones began in Bellevue more than 25 years ago, and I have served in children’s ministry ever since! I have enjoyed ­­teaching Sunday school, leading VBS, homeschooling my children, serving as a children’s ministry director, teaching preschool and kindergarten, and most recently serving as a preschool director.

I feel blessed to work in a Christian school where I can encourage families of young children in their faith and to trust the Lord in raising their children.  As a mother of three grown children and a teenager, I have always drawn strength from the verse, “Apart from me, you can do nothing,” John 15:5.  When we abide in Him, we bear much fruit.

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy hiking with my husband, Steven, and family (including my chocolate lab), gardening, watching my boys play soccer, drinking coffee, and reading historical fiction.

I love music, art, hiking, beaches, and prayer. I have known ECS as a staff and parent for 10-plus years. My daughter has attended ECS since pre-K, and I have witnessed the influence of Christian education firsthand. I have enjoyed teaching children throughout the elementary grades, and believe that mastery of basic skills is essential in the primary grades. I look forward to working with other teachers to provide an engaging and collaborative environment as we expand our virtual programs this year. There isn’t just one way to teach or learn, which motivates me to seek a variety of ways in which students feel motivated to learn and succeed.

I have lived most of my life in the Pacific Northwest (with a two-year stint in Dallas, TX, right after marrying my husband Steve). We have three sons: one proudly serving in the Marine Corps, one in high school, and one in middle school. I relish the moments when I can be a tourist in my own town and neighboring ‘burbs! I am always on the hunt for the next great cup of coffee and am in my happy place whenever I spend time near a lake or our Puget Sound beaches.  I love supporting Eastside families in raising up the next generation to know Jesus, so they can love and serve others with the same heart as his.

I was born in Taiwan, grew up in California, went to school in Pennsylvania and moved to Seattle for work. After 20 years in the aerospace industry, God gave me the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom and to volunteer in various ministries. My husband and I have two daughters who have been attending ECS since preschool. I am delighted to be on staff at ECS. It truly is a blessing to be a part of the ECS community and to witness God’s love and faithfulness for ECS and His people.  In my spare time, I enjoy doing crafts, organizing and spending time with family and friends.

I was born and raised in Washington and I am a lifelong resident of the Eastside. I spent the first half of my childhood in Bellevue and the second in Redmond.  I graduated from WSU with a degree in Family Studies and Human Development with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.  After college I worked in sports programs for the YMCA and Special Olympics prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom.  While a homemaker, I continued to volunteer at my church leading women’s ministries, and I coached youth basketball, softball and soccer.  Recently, I completed a certificate in Human Resources from Bellevue College. Both my children have now graduated from High School and I am excited to find a new purpose in education.  I feel blessed to be a part the ECS community where Christ is the center of spiritual and academic growth.

In my free time I enjoy game nights and entertaining family and friends.  I also keep busy with outdoor activities, weight training, exploring new places, and home decorating projects.
