Welcome to Cedar Valley!


We are eager to get to meet our newest learners and welcome you to the community! We know that you are trusting us to keep your child safe, to develop foundational skills and to instill a love of learning. Our Cedar Valley teachers and staff are ready to meet this challenge. Just like every school year our teachers put a lot of thought into what we teach and how we teach it so that learning happens in an engaging way. We work hard to get to know each student and determine what they need to keep progressing socially, emotionally, and educationally. 

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. As the old African Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Cedar Valley. And of course I will be here to work with them, and you, should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day.

My goal is to ensure that all our children are safe, respected and happy, so they may learn and experience as much as they can. This has been my philosophy since I began my teaching experience within the Franklin Pierce, and then Olympia School Districts. I worked in Olympia, for five years, where I taught kindergarten and second grade. I also provided instructional support for the building staff, as well as facilitated professional development and parent workshops. I then moved to the Edmonds School District where I was an assistant building principal and had the honor and privilege to support hundreds of diverse learners each day. People often say I treat all children in my school as if they were my own.

Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all your children have the best possible experiences while at Cedar Valley. Thank you for joining our snow leopard family.

Thank you,

Leah Bracken
