Parent Educator Lea Evans
Lea Evans is the Parent Educator for the Pre-3s Class. She has been on the Parent Education faculty at North Seattle College since 2018 and has taught and advised adult students in various subjects, states, and countries since 2001.
Since her son was born in 2013, she has focused much more on supporting families. Her son attended a co-op preschool here in Seattle and is currently enjoying elementary school. Lea is thrilled to be a part of the U-Ravenna community.
Parents work in the classroom once a week, assisting Teacher Christi in an assigned role. Parents also attend monthly evening parent education classes led by Lea Evans. And, parents hold volunteer administration jobs to keep the preschool running smoothly behind the scenes. Jobs include Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary, Parent Coordinator, Scheduler, Photographer, and more.
Our preschool allows babes-in-arms. Newborn infants up to one year of age can attend class for their older sibling with their enrolled caregiver as long as they can remain in a carrier or wrap.
