Miss Staples

Let me introduce myself: My name is Sydney Staples and I am one of six 5th grade teachers at Lake Stickney!

I have a passion for working with children and helping them grow into adults who get involved and give back to their community. I enjoy teaching because there is an excitement, joy and suspense in the journey. To spend each day helping children unravel their uniqueness is the best job ever! Each of your students are their own world, and when all those worlds collide, magic happens. I am looking forward to creating magic in our classroom this year.

A little about myself: In my free time, I play lots of competitive soccer. I am a fitness coach at a boutique gym in Bothell. I teach XFormer strength training classes on an XFormer machine. I enjoy running, biking, kayaking, hiking, golfing, and singing. If the sun is out, you'll find me outside! I am a University of Washington alumni and Seattle Sounders fan. 😊 I have a boxer dog named Dierks (he’s named after a country singer). I am getting married this summer! Soon to be Mrs. Mendoza. I love to stay active, so in the classroom, we are active learners, often using our hands and always using our minds!

The best way to reach me is via email at StaplesSA@mukilteo.wednet.edu. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me! I am here to help.
