Special Education Asst/ISE - 203/7

Appleyard, Tracy


This is my 7th year as a Teacher Librarian.

I strive to provide all of your technology, information and reading needs!

My hope is that when you walk into the library at Orca K-8, you feel represented on the shelves and that you feel safe and welcome in the space.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and animals. I'm happiest with a good book, eating delicious food and spending time in nature.

Hello Orca! I'm so excited to work together. I am passionate about teaching English Language Arts--reading and writing are my hobbies, and I'm so lucky to be able to pursue them at work. Outside of school I love to bake, spend time outdoors, and play with my two rescue dogs, Sloopy and T-Rex.

This is my fifteenth-year teaching in Seattle Public Schools! My fourth year teaching Physical Education to all grade levels at Orca K-8.   In addition to teaching, I love to read, spend time with my family, and be active outdoors.  I have a strong focus on equity and healthy communities.
