Dear Lakeridge Families,
Welcome to the 2015-16 school year!
I am thrilled to have joined the Lakeridge community and eager to meet our students and families! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer and are feeling refreshed and ready for an exciting year of learning and growth. Collaboration between home and school is a key component to the success of every student and we are blessed to have such a dedicated, positive, and supportive community of parents, families, teachers, and staff.
I am a Washington State native. I grew up in Kent and played soccer, basketball, and ran track in high school. I graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in Psychology, received a Masters in Teaching and an Administration Certificate from City University of Seattle. I have three kids – my daughter, Austin (24), lives in Santa Barbara, CA and my sons, Cole (16) and Drew (14), attend Sammamish HS in Bellevue. I am getting married in October (new last name is McAlaine), so I will be gaining three more teenage boys – Liam (17), Connor (14), and Aidan (14). My finance, Mike, and I will be spending many hours at football and basketball games throughout the year and we will be keeping Costco in business. J
