“A hundred years from now…

it will not matter what my bank was,

the sort of house I lived in,

or the kind of car I drove…

but the world may be different

because I was important in the life of a child”

– Unkown


Joan Marie

Federal Way School Board Director

# 5


A former Federal Way Public School Special Ed teacher, at Rainier View. Joan is highly skilled and able to the assist the district in its mission of obtaining its four pillar goals.

    • Standardized Aligned Teaching
    • Safe Schools with Family and Community involvement
    • Culturally Inclusive Awareness
    • Use of Data as a guide to achieve the District’s goals.

Federal Way is positioned to attract high wage jobs – but only if we have strong vibrant schools!

School board meetings need to be accessible to the entire community by being streamed and archived for future viewing, as they were in the past. Parents are busy caring for their families, elders who are uncomfortable going out at night to unfamiliar locations, and those coming home from a full day at work are not available at the time of the School Board meetings. Teachers likewise need the opportunity to know what the District and School Board decides.

Public school funding comes primarily from the state and local taxes. It is imperative tax payers know how the money is being spent, and most importantly student outcomes – if the district
wants to maintain public support at the polls.

Joan will be a bridge builder to both our diverse communities and a conduit to the business community.
