Sharon Peaslee - District I
As a parent, educator and advocate for excellent public education Sharon is committed to helping all students succeed, with pathways that support diverse needs, abilities, learning styles and life goals. Sharon has worked on education issues in Washington since 2005. At the State level, she was involved in the process of improving WA math standards that were adopted in 2008. She organized communities in Lake Washington and Bellevue School Districts to successfully push for better math curricula. In Bellevue, she worked with administrators to improve home schooling policies, bringing them into compliance with State law and increasing flexibility for parents and students.
With two teens in Seattle Public Schools, Sharon owes much of her engagement to their unique educational needs, which are also the same as many other students. She has met and worked with countless parents who want our schools to give their children the support and personalized education they need to succeed in school and life. This is the passion and inspiration that continues to drive her as a Seattle School Board Director.
Sharon is fully committed to working with communities across Seattle to ensure that our district provides all students with engaging educational pathways that prepare them for the futures of their choice. She is constantly informed by schools and countries where public education inspires creative teaching and learning that supports high achievement among diverse learners. She believes that we can make Seattle one of the best if we’re willing to envision the future we want and work collaboratively to make it happen.
Sharon has worked as a writer, producer and director her entire career. She continues to produce video and web-based programs through her production company, Flying Lula Productions. Before moving to Washington, Sharon lived in Santa Monica, CA and New York City, developing feature film projects, producing documentaries, corporate and educational videos, infomercials and commercials.
She has a MA in English Education from New York University, a BA in Communications from University of Massachusetts, and teaching credentials in English and Speech/Drama.
