I am thrilled to be joining this thoughtful and engaging learning community, and I wanted to share a little bit about myself both professionally and personally, so you could get to know my story. I look forward to hearing your family’s story.
My professional journey began at Seattle Pacific University, student teaching in south Seattle and teaching in Guatemala City for a summer. I taught in the Bellevue School District for nine years, at Chinook Middle School for one year and then for eight years at Spiritridge Elementary School, where we housed the district gifted program. After returning to SPU for my Masters' of Educational Leadership and Principal Certification, I served as Assistant Principal of Woodridge Elementary for three years and Ardmore Elementary for four years. Over the past two years I’ve been the Principal of Kellogg Marsh Elementary School in the Marysville School District. My work has always been about bringing communities together and partnering for the success of each and every student. I believe that together we are stronger, and our students benefit. I’ve already found so much joy in my transition to NSD and the Moorlands community.
Personally, I live in Monroe with my husband and my two sons. When I am not working, I love reading, music, enjoying the outdoors with my boys, taking walks with friends, and visiting my extended family in Kirkland. I am a diehard Seahawks fan, but I grew up in Chicago, so I also love the Cubs.
I look forward to learning about all of the things that make Moorlands a special place for learning and look forward to growing together in the coming months! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns at: email@example.com. I look forward to working alongside you and growing as a community!

Greetings Moorlands, I am LaTisha Joseph, and I am excited to join your community and serve as the Assistant Principal. This is my 17th year as an educator and 14th year with Northshore School District. Most recently I was the Dean of Students at Woodmoor Elementary where I fostered relationships with staff, students, families, and community members to support the success of students both academically and socially emotionally.
Prior to my relocation to the great northwest, I was an educator in Chicago Public Schools at Crown Community Academy K-8. My time here in Northshore has included being a Teacher-Librarian, as well as many other program experiences ranging from Early Childhood, EAP, PACE, Adult Transition Program, coaching Track and Field and Cross Country.
I attended Southern Illinois University where I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech Communication Disorders and Sciences. I earned my Master's in Education Curriculum & Instruction from DePaul University and my Administration Credentials through University of Washington Danforth Educational Leadership Program.
On a personal note, my husband and I have two awesome children who we like to spend time traveling, hiking, and camping.
I look forward to working with all of you and getting to know your children.
