Mrs. Crosby

Hi! I'm Susie Crosby, and I am the Grasshopper specialist at Pathfinder. I taught Physical Education in Shoreline for 28 years before coming to teach in Mukilteo. I feel like I have come "home" because my husband and I live in Mukilteo, and both of our sons graduated from Kamiak High School. I grew up in the Puget Sound area and enjoy hiking, kayaking, watching football, and walking on the beach. I have recently become a blogger and author, and I hope to write a children's book someday.

Kindergarten is a unique and special time of growth, and I'm very grateful and excited to be able to be a part of this year in your child's life!

Mrs. Holloway

I am Jenn Holloway and I teach Art, Music, P.E., and Technology to the Caterpillar Pod. I believe in the education of the whole child emotionally and intellectually. In order for children to reach their full potential they need to be exposed to a joy for learning, a fulfillment of their curiosity, and a warm structured atmosphere where they feel loved and safe.

I taught pre-K for 18 years and this is my third year teaching in the Mukilteo School District and Pathfinder Kindergarten Center. I feel so fortunate to be working at Pathfinder with the Caterpillar students. I love this age because the students experience so much growth. It is an amazing place to be a kid!

I moved here with my husband in 1999 and love living in the Pacific Northwest. In my spare time I enjoy walking with my dog Cali, gardening, hiking, and reading. I am excited to meet and spend time with your children.

Miss Sarah Johnson

Hi! My name is Sarah Johnson and I am the specialist in the Bumblebee Pod. I teach art, music, PE, and technology. I taught 1st grade in Arizona for three years before moving back to my home state. I taught 1st grade and ELL for 10 years at Horizon and Olivia Park before transferring to Pathfinder when it opened in 2017. I am so fortunate to have a job that I love coming to every day! I have so much fun getting to know and working with all of your children during the course of the school year!  

When not at work, I enjoy traveling with my family and boyfriend. I have an ever-expanding list of places to visit both locally and worldwide that I work on checking off every chance I get! I also like to spend my free time going to concerts and the theater, camping and exploring, and reading, and hope to someday write a children's book. 

Thank you for letting me be a part of your child's education. It is such a joy to watch them grow as learners!

Mrs. Stevens

My name is Sara Stevens.  I am the specialist in the Ladybug pod.  I teach P.E., music, art, social emotional and technology to our Kindergarten students.  I have been teaching in the Mukilteo School District for 13 years.  I took a break in the middle of my career to stay home with my 3 children who have all attended school in Mukilteo.  I came to Pathfinder in 2017 when the school opened, and I was a classroom teacher for 5 years here before becoming a specialist.  I love that each day of my job is different and fun. 

I grew up in Oregon and still enjoy cheering for the Oregon Ducks.  Like many young, restless teenagers, I was eager to go to college out of state, so I moved to Colorado for school.  After college, I moved to California and spent a year there teaching, enjoying the sun and the beaches.  My husband and I moved to Washington State in 2001 and have been here ever since! Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, attending sporting events and going for walks with my husband and friends.  I also just love spending time with my family.
