Bosseau, Dylan

Preschool Teacher

I am a long time early childhood educator with training in child development and education from birth to fifth grade. I taught preschool and circus acrobatics for many years in New York City. I began working within SPS after moving to Seattle in 2013. I love teaching Preschool!

We are already off and running here in Pre-K! We are learning all about each other and all about being in school. We are solving problems, sharing ideas, exploring sand and play dough, paint and crayons, books and blocks. We are moving our bodies through space, creating stories with our imaginations, and talking about our feelings. We love learning in Pre-K!

Dawson, Elizabeth

Grade 2 Teacher

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Dawson, and I'm in my eighth year at B.F. Day, and my sixth year in second grade here. I adore working here at The Family School. It truly is a wonderful, warm community.

I adore second grade, and working with our wonderful scholars! I believe in building a classroom community around empathy, hard work, kindness, and fun. I'm a lifelong learner and active reader; I'm also a movie buff, music collector, animal lover, and Seattlite. I'm a graduate of Western Washington University, with a degree in Education and a minor in Special Education. I very much look forward to getting to know my next cohort of "scholars" this year!
