Lorinda Flikkema

I have been teaching at SHS since 1999. I absolutely love this community of students and staff. The school is diverse, warm, welcoming and accepting of all. I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else...My goal is to finish my teaching career at SHS. GO REDHAWKS!

Jae Holt

I chose to teach at Sammamish High School because the diversity here offers a unique opportunity to be exposed to and integrate many social and cultural experiences in my classroom. Every day is a new learning opportunity that I enjoy sharing with my students, emphasizing that each of their personal experiences matter.

Maria Barrios

The youth mental health crisis in America awakened me to take action, not to cower in fear. Research shows that early intervention and treatment can make a difference for our young people. That’s why I’m on a mission to support and bring the best mental health support for our kids through the Bellevue Schools Foundation. They deserve a chance to thrive and succeed and they need to know they are not alone. See 2023-2024 BSF investments at Sammamish High School and districtwide.

As a Latina science teacher, working at SHS is a real joy. I get to connect with students from different backgrounds, listen to their stories, and learn from them. It is fostering an inclusive environment where everyone has an opportunity to be themselves and explore the world through education.
