Stephanie Penrod

I am honored to be the principal of Bear Creek Elementary and have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing school community. During my many years in education, I have taught K-6 grade students in a variety of settings both in Seattle Public Schools and Northshore School District. I have also worked with teachers as a coach and professional development provider at a school and district level. Prior to coming to Bear Creek, I served as the assistant principal of Crystal Springs Elementary.

I am also a parent within the Northshore School District. My husband and I have a son and daughter attending Northshore schools.
