Librarian

tmappleyard@seattleschools.org

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.

Principal (on leave)

I am delighted to work at such a high functioning school with skilled teachers and supportive families. I believe in the strength of education and the positive impact a rigorous, thoughtful education can have in students' lives. At John Hay, we are committed to creating a creative, innovative school where students learn skills they need for the 21st Century! I live in the Dash Point/Browns Point area of Tacoma with my family. We have a wonderful, large family of 11. Our oldest are 24 (twins), and our youngest is in Third Grade. I am looking forward to this new year!
