Hi! This is my first year teaching at Blaine and I'm new to the Seattle Area. I moved from Boston, Massachusetts where I taught fourth grade for the past four years. Prior to that I grew up in New Jersey. I went to Mount Holyoke College undergrad and got my masters from Lesley University. I am a huge fan of the outdoors and cannot wait to explore the Pacific Northwest, and I never pass up the chance to pet a friendly dog!

Hello and welcome! My name is Kristen Lê. I have been a kindergarten teacher at Van Asselt Elementary School since 2014 and I absolutely love it. I am most happy when I spend time with my family and watching my students grow and realize their potential as scholars and learners! Feel free to peruse my Donors Choose website and get updates on my latest project.
