The communications and marketing coordinator works closely with the communications officer in meeting the internal and external communication needs of WSSDA.

Pardon my goofy picture, but hello! I’m the person who works closest with the communications coordinator. I’ve lived overseas, trained as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (M.A. TESOL), worked in communications for private and public colleges, plus worked for just short of a year at Seattle Public Schools. WSSDA offers meaningful work in a great facility, plus one of the most supportive teams I’ve ever joined. One of our primary hopes for the new coordinator is that they will help us increase the production of timely, relevant content for diverse audiences comprised of school boards, educational partners, and the public.
