Hello! My name is Anna Buenvenida and I am excited to join the SMM staff as the Preschool Director. I am grateful for this opportunity to combine my fondness for teaching with my cherished Catholic faith. I graduated from the UW with my B.S. degree in Psychology and then completed their Early Childhood Special Education program to earn my M.Ed. degree. Over the years and in different ways, I have had the privilege of working with young children with special needs and their families. I first worked as a Family Resource Coordinator for the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation in Magnolia. After grad school, I continued to work with infants and toddlers as a Special Educator at Wonderland Developmental Center in Shoreline. Eventually, I joined the Edmonds School District where I taught a developmental preschool classroom of 3-5 year old’s with a variety of special needs. After several fulfilling years of teaching, I decided to stay at home to spend more time with our kids, Marianna and Valentina. My husband Marc and I have really enjoyed being a part of the SMM community since Marianna started preschool here 4 years ago. We love watching the kids grow together, the sense of camaraderie with other parents, and the dedication of the teachers. I am looking forward to being more involved with the SMM community in this special way and to a wonderful school year!
