Hello!  My name is Dori DeJardin and I am the full-time Elementary Support Specialist at Pathfinder.  I have worked in the Mukilteo School District since 1998.  Prior to being the ESS at Pathfinder, I was a School Psychologist at Pathfinder, Odyssey and Fairmount. 

I feel so fortunate to work at Pathfinder.  It is so fun to work with Kindergarteners. So much growth occurs in this first year of school.  I look forward to getting to know the students and their families.  I am here Monday-Friday 8:30-4:15.
