Ms. Patricia Stracener

I joined ACES High School in December 2019.  You will finding me greeting you and taking care of attendance at our school in the front office.   I moved here from Manson (which is on Lake Chelan) in Eastern Washington and now live with my daughter and grandson in Snohomish.  I have worked in education since 1990, and have had several different roles.   I have worked on US Government grants for most of my educational career, going into schools with low economic and culturally very diverse communities helping students and staff with the expectation of furthering the numbers of their students who graduate from high school and move on to secondary education.

I love kids.  This is a statement of fact and I believe I have been given the pathway in life, that is to give every young person I come in contact with is given the chance to reach their full potential.  I believe barriers are meant to be overcome and that there should be no reason a student cannot be successful if they wish.   I hope to connect with as many families and students as possible and to be an asset to the school community.
